Atlanta at Pittsburgh

1 unit on Pittsburgh -160 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.63) RESULT: WIN
The Atlanta Braves opened the season at 5-0, but have been under .500 since. The Braves cleaned house during the offseason, so not a whole lot was expected of them. Julio Teheran has not looked like the same pitcher this season, as he has struggled to a 5-3 record backed by an elevated 4.67 ERA. Charlie Morton had his first bad outing of the season last time out where he did not survive the first inning, dropping his record to 5-1 on the season. The Pirates have taken full advantage of their home field at 23-13 here on the season. The Braves have struggled on the road, but no more so than when they play a team with a winning record where they are 7-24 in their last 31 away from the Teepee. Morton has pitched the Pirates to six straight wins vs. a losing team, and the Braves are in a historically bad spot, one that has left teams with a 20-57 record. And playing against Atlanta has produced an ROI of +23.8%. Play on Pittsburgh.
