Major League Baseball Top Exposures May 11 - Braves

The Atlanta Braves are among the Major League Baseball top exposures this day as they go up against the Miami Marlins.

Atlanta had dropped from -130 at some books to -115.  This line movement makes no sense since better than 85% of the money line action was on the Braves.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Brandon McCarthy (4-1, 4.84 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Dan Straily (0-0, 6.75)

McCarthy’s ERA jumped nearly two runs a game after a rough beginning to May, in which he gave up eight runs on 12 hits in 3 1/3 innings in a loss to San Francisco.  McCarthy makes his third career start against Miami, going 2-0 with a 2.29 ERA in 19 2/3 innings.

Straily continues working his way back from right forearm inflammation that delayed his season debut until April 30. In two starts since returning, the 29-year-old has allowed six runs on nine hits over eight innings with eight walks and three homers allowed.  He received a no-decision his last start and is 2-2 with a 5.52 ERA in six starts lifetime against Atlanta.

The Braves are 10-1 in their last 11 road games, which certainly has resulted in all the public love.  The Marlins, however, are 5-0 in Straily’s last 5 home starts.  The later stat appears to be more important to the bookmakers.

At the onset of the season, the Cubs shocked fans, gamblers, and the baseball community with a strong start that had them on top of the National League Central just a couple of weeks shy of the All-Star break.  But as the wins and profits piled up, a more sober look at Chicago revealed cracks.

Following three consecutive National League East Division championships and an impressive 2020 run that took them to the seventh game of the National League Championship Series, the Atlanta Braves were an understandable favorite to do it all again in 2021.  Except that is not what has happened.
