Baseball hot streaks: Braves, Brewers favored in MLB odds

Scott Cunningham

Atlanta is on fire and Milwaukee is riding a 9-game win streak. Baseball bettors have taken notice of early wagering trends and streaks.

The Atlanta Braves seem intent on proving to the Colorado Rockies just who is the top dog in the early going of this young MLB season.

Wednesday Hot-lanta shoots for a sweep of Colorado in Denver, one of several series finales to be played and wagered on. [ See baseball odds here at SBNation ]

After a post-postponement Monday the Braves swept two games from the Rockies Tuesday by scores of 4-3 and 10-2. Atlanta and Colorado both came into this series with records of 13-5, which were the best in baseball.

Now, the Braves are 15-5 and lead the NL East by five games, while the Rocks are 13-7 and own a half-game lead in the NL West. [ Which umpires can be counted on for over bets? Watch updated MLB umpire stats ]
