Washington at Atlanta
Thursday 07/02 07:10 PM Eastern
1 unit on Atlanta +180 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.8) RESULT: WIN
Washington is a .500 road team, but is a road favorite with Max Scherzer going. However, the Braves are 10-2 in their last 12 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. The Braves won yesterday 4-1, and Manny Banuelos makes his major-league debut for Atlanta, so Washington has never seen him. He is putting together a strong season at Triple-A Gwinnett with a 6-2 record and 2.29 ERA. The Braves are on a 4-1 run at home, plus 4-1 in their last five games as a home underdog. Dan Iassogna is calling balls and strikes and the home team is 13-6 when he is behind home plate. Atlanta is 5-1 at home against a team with a winning record, so grab home field and play Atlanta.
