Braves (+100*) has a 51% probability

This pick just feels like common sense. The Braves have had the Phillies’ number all weekend, and although the Braves had to rally late yesterday to win it in the ninth, we like them again today to pile on the misery. Philadelphia is now on a five-game losing streak. It’ll be six after today.


Run Line
Braves -1.5 (+170*) has a 0.4% edge

A pick purely for those that like maximizing their tickets. Our predictive model says the Braves win this comfortably. If you want a big return, it’s worth taking them to win by 2 runs or more.
