There is one pick tonight.
Take Atlanta Braves (+107) on the ML against Los Angeles Dodgers risking 3% to win 3.21%
(Sanchez and Hill must start for wager to have action)
The LA Dodgers will travel to SunTrust Field to open a series with the Atlanta Braves tonight.
Rich Hill will take the mound for the Dodgers and there is no question that he is not the same pitcher that he was just a few short year ago putting up double-digit wins with relative ease. This season, he will likely struggle to even reach 10 wins as he has a 4.26 ERA and batters are hitting a robust .258 against him.
Anibal Sanchez meanwhile has been enjoying a career resurgence this season and has been a welcome addition to the Braves rotation. He is 6-2 on the season and is sporting an impressive 2.76 ERA. He’s allowed two earned runs or less in eight of the 12 starts. Over his last 3, he has gone 2-0 and has allowed just five earned runs total while going at least six innings in each start. Sanchez beat the Dodgers on June 9, allowing two runs and three hits over 5 1/3 frames to improve to 1-1 with a 3.24 ERA in six career meetings.
This is an important game for the Atlanta Braves as they now sit just a game and a half behind Philadelphia who just beat the Dodgers in two straight. Both Atlanta and LA are within striking distance of the division lead and with Atlanta having to contend with Clayton Kershaw tomorrow, it is important they take this series opener and we believe they find a way to get it done. Th value is with Atlanta as underdogs at home.
