Atlanta Braves vs. Houston Astros

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 – 08:10 PM ET at Minute Maid Park

It has been an awful start to the season for Houston, as well as this series with Atlanta. The Astros look to at least turn the series around Tuesday when Hunter Brown (0-2, 16.43) takes the mound as a +100 underdog at BetOnline against Reynaldo López (1-0, 0.75) and the Braves.

Can Brown Rebound From Shelling?

Lopez is coming off 6 shutout innings against the Mets last week, and saw Houston’s lineup 4 times total last season, twice out of the White Sox bullpen and twice from the Angels (combined 4 IP, 1 ER).

Brown suffered his worst MLB start last week against the Rangers, failing to get out of the first and charged with 9 ER. He took a no-decision in a 6-4 Houston win over Atlanta last year.

Road Team Has Won 10 of Last 15

Monday saw Atlanta blow a close game open in the ninth for a 6-1 win, marking the 10th time in the last 15 meetings for the visitors to cash.

There’s very little reason to expect the Astros to change that trend on Tuesday, and the MLB odds play is Atlanta on short chalk.
