Location: Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, PA
Braves vs. Phillies On TV: FOX
Atlanta Braves (Tim Hudson) -112
Philadelphia Phillies (Kyle Kendrick) +106
The Braves are the cream of the crop in the NL East, and no one is going to take that away from them, but in this game, the oddsmakers are just barking up the wrong tree making them the favorites. RHP Tim Hudson has had a fantastic career, but the fact that he is 0-6 in his last 10 starts is no mistake. He just doesn’t have it any longer like he used to. RHP Kyle Kendrick isn’t the best pitcher in the world, but he does have a 7-5 record on a team that is going to hover right around the .500 mark all season long from the looks of it. The Phillies have been playing good baseball of late, winning three out of four games against division leaders in the National League, while Atlanta has slid to three straight losses. What’s worse for the Braves though, is that they have had absolutely no luck against Kendrick since he has come to the City of Brotherly Love. Kendrick is 7-1 against the Braves with a sub-3.00 ERA, and for the most part, he has been the dominating pitcher in this series over the course of the last several seasons. We just can’t ignore that fact, especially knowing just how badly Hudson has pitched of late. To make Philly an underdog on the MLB odds is just preposterous.
