Trends

Miami is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 14-32 in their last 46 games against the NL East. The under is 9-1 in Miami’s last 10 games. Atlanta is 5-1 in their last 6 Monday games and 26-11 in their last 37 games against the NL East. The over is 7-1 in Atlanta’s last 8 game one’s of a series. The over is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Atlanta.

Pick

The Braves come into this game on a four game losing streak, but they are heavily favored to win this game. Miami is coming off of a series win and will have Edward Cabrera on the mound, who has allowed two earned runs in each of his last four outings. The Braves will start Spencer Strider, who has allowed six earned runs over 22 innings pitched this year. I think we are going to see a low scoring game here, so I am taking the under.
