MLB EXPERT PICKS - FULL ANALYSIS ATTACHED

ATLANTA BRAVES MONEYLINE: 2 UNITS (-145)

 

Jacob DeGrom worked his magic Tuesday night, while Julio Teheran threw a rare dud after an 8-week stretch of complete dominance. However, we must support the Braves to rebound tonight. Atlanta remains the hottest team in the MLB winning 10 of their last 12 games (83%), and their offense has produced a staggering 90 runs in their last 11 games (8.1 runs per game). In a more recent sample size of the last 7 games, the Braves offense is batting a 2nd ranked team .332 average, 2nd in HR's (14), 2nd in slugging % (.576) and are 2nd in OPS (.983). Atlanta is 7-2 on this current homestand (77.7%), while this is the 3rd game of an 11-game road trip for the Mets, who remain the biggest deficit road team for bettors to support with at -8.63 units. Max Fried has regressed in June, but he remains a reliable option to invest in, as the Braves are 10-4 in his 14 starts this season (71.4%), including a perfect 3-0 this month when he has had his worst performances of the season. Expect Fried to get back close to his season averages and for the Braves red-hot offense to provide enough support to pad another W into his impressive stats.
