o10 runs (-105*) has a 54% chance of going over

The Phillies needed 11 innings yesterday to take care of the Braves, so it’s no surprise that the game total went over yesterday with just as many runs. These two teams have played up some huge games against each other this season with five of their eight games so far going over the set runs total. Make that six of nine today.

Braves (-115*) has a 1.3% edge on the books

Philadelphia is riding a five-game winning streak, but they had to work for the W last night. Braves starting pitcher Josh Tomlin has had a pretty good start to the year with a 3.93 ERA. Look for him to suffocate the Phillies today.

Run line
Braves +1.5 (-110*) has a 62% chance of covering the run line

We see the Braves winning, but if you’re someone that likes just that extra bit of security, Atlanta at the run line will also net you a nice return on your ticket. Get up to 40% winnings boost with BetMGM when you opt-in and place a 4+ leg parlay on any combination of sports or events.

Dimers' take-out

Over the course of the year, these two teams have played out some entertaining baseball with no one team gaining any real clear advantage. Take Atlanta to win for some value and expect there to be lots of runs once the bullpens are trotted out.
