2 units on Atlanta +104 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Anthony Reyes (7.00 ERA) will square off against Mike Hampton (0.00) this afternoon. The Cards have had trouble producing runs this spring, as only three teams have scored less. At the same time, they have given up the fifth-most runs in the Grapefruit circuit, and even when playing home they have been a sub-.500 team. The Braves have been producing runs second only to the Reds in the Grapefruit circuit, and at the same time have been able to produce a winning mark on the road. Hampton had a minor setback with some groin discomfort, but threw on the side and had no pain last week. He has not yielded a run yet this spring, while Reyes has been lit-up and the Braves ability to produce runs this spring makes them the choice here.
