Over/Under: o9.5 runs (+100*) has a 50% chance of going over

Our predictive analysis has this one as a line ball total, but given the +100 odds on the over, edges the bet as our best for this game. Friday’s game between the two yielded 11 runs, so we are expecting that trend to continue today. Place a 3-sport parlay with William Hill and get a 20% cash credit on your Qualifying Wager.

Braves H2H (-105*) has a 1.7% edge over the sportsbooks

Philadelphia have had the upper hand over Atlanta over the last three contests between the two, but we are predicting that tide to turn this evening. A lot will depend on Braves starting pitcher Tommy Milone who gets his first mound action for the year.

Run line
Braves +1.5 (-200*) has a 64% chance of covering the run line

On the back of our moneyline pick, we’ve got the Braves covering at a high probability. It’s a nice safety bet if you can’t completely give up on the Phillies form.

Dimers' take-out

Philadelphia are on a hot streak, but as they say, streaks are made to be broken. Look for the Braves to get the edge today.
