Dimers' Suggested Plays

Lock: Braves +1.5 (-108*)
Moneyline: Braves (+170*)
Total runs: Under 9 (+110*)

Lock
Run line: Braves +1.5 (-108*) has a 61% probability

Our model is expecting Atlanta to be right in this game, with a 61 percent chance that they will cover the run line. If they don't win, at least look for them to keep it close.

 

Moneyline: Braves (+170*) has a 45% probability

The value at the Moneyline in this one is the Braves. Although the probability is under 50 percent, they are +170 underdogs at the time of publishing, which is good money considering their chances of winning.

Total runs: Under 9 (+110*) has a 50% probability

We're expecting fewer runs in this fixture compared to what we saw in the opening game of the series. There was 15 runs scored in the opener, however, look for things to be a little tighter this time around.

Dimers' take-out

We should be set for another exciting matchup and don't be surprised if the Braves level this series. If they don't it should still be a close game.
