Baseball betting odds on the Marlins and Braves feature a MLB betting handicap of two teams with a lot of potential but also a lot of questions. Baseball betting odds will be posted for probable starters Chris Volstad of Florida and Javier Vazquez for the Braves in this MLB betting matchup from Turner Field, Atlanta.
The Marlins got off to an outstanding start to the 2009 MLB betting season with 4 wins in their first 5 games with 4 of those games also going over the total. Volstad, a right hander, had an impressive start against the baseball betting odds in his first appearance against Washington as he allowed just 1 earned run on 2 hits in 5 innings while striking out 7.
Emilio Bonifacio has been a big reason for the Marlins hot start against the baseball betting odds as he had a .600 on base percentage to begin the season along with 9 runs and 5 runs batted in.
Another asset against the baseball betting odds for the Marlins has been Hanley Ramirez, who was hitting .421 with 2 home runs and 9 runs batted in. The Marlins demonstrated excellent balance against the baseball betting odds in the early going with a top ranking on offense and an 8th place ranking for pitching.
The Atlanta Braves start against the baseball betting odds in 2009 reminded fans of their dominant glory days that were not that long ago. The Braves also won 4 of their first 5 games to begin the year.
Vazquez had a no decision in his first start against the baseball betting odds this year. He is 6-5 against the baseball betting odds when pitching against Florida with a 4.68 earned run average.
Yunel Escobar and Jordan Shafer both got off to plus .400 starts batting to begin the year while Brian McCann was hitting .316 with 2 home runs and 6 runs batted in to begin the 2009 campaign.
Both the Braves and Marlins have shown early that they intend to be strong comeback contenders and fight the favored Phillies and Mets in the National League East.
