Atlanta is 4-0 in their last 4 Monday games and 9-1 in their last 10 road games. The over is 4-1 in Atlanta’s last 5 games.

Atlanta has been one of the best teams in baseball to start the year, while New York has struggled over the last week. These two teams have not played since Friday, as the games on Saturday and Sunday were postponed due to rain. Atlanta is playing like the better team in this matchup and they have two really good pitchers throwing in these two games with Strider and Morton. I like the Braves to win Game 1 by at least two runs and the Braves to win Game 2.
