There is one pick tonight.

 

Take Atlanta Braves (-134) on the ML against San Francisco Giants risking 4.02% to win 3%.
(Foltynewicz and Suarez must start for wager to have action)

As the end of the regular season winds down, these two teams are heading in complete opposite direction. The Atlanta Braves have been thriving towards the finish line and are 4-1 on their seven-game road trip as they move closer to securing their first division crown since 2013. Meanwhile, the San Francisco Giants appear to simply be mailing in each game as they are currently on a 9-game losing streak which matches their worst skid since 2006. During that stretch they have scored three runs or fewer in eight of their losses.

The Braves should have the pitching edge in this contest as Atlanta's Mike Foltynewicz squares off against San Francisco's Andrew Suarez. Foltynewicz has been incredibly well this season but has unfortunately received less than stellar run support recently. He is 0-2 over his last 4 starts but owns a very respectable 2.16 ERA during that span, allowing fewer than two runs three times. He owns an impressive 2.71 ERA in 13 road starts while limiting opponents to a .208 batting average this season.

Suarez has pitched well himself this season, however, the lack of run support by his team has cost him at times as well. He is coming off a disastrous outing in which he gave up 5 earned runs in 6 innings of work (3 homeruns) against the Colorado Rockies. He managed to pick up his first major league win this season, coincidentally against the Braves back on May 6th, where he surrendered just a single run over 5.3 innings of work. It's worth noting that it was the Braves first time seeing Suarez in action.

These two teams are simply heading on opposite paths and with the Braves still having their sights on the division title and this line being where it is currently at, the value is on them in this contest tonight.
