Everyone keeps waiting for the Braves’ home magic to extinguish itself, but like Ole Man River, they keep rolling along at home, while the value keeps rising. The Braves are baseball's best at home, entering with a 41-16 mark on the season. The numbers are even brighter in their last 27 here at home vs. a righthander, where they have posted a 21-6 mark. The Dodgers have struggled on the road all season, but that weakness is shinning brighter when they face a team with a winning record, where they are just 7-19 in their last 26. The road woes have also worsened as the season has progressed, showing the Dodgers at 3-13 in their last 16 roadies. Atlanta is not the place to get healthy, so I'll back the Braves here.
