Pick

The Braves had a great chance to win the series on Saturday, but they were unable to hold a 3-0 lead and ended up with the loss. Atlanta has had some struggles recently, while Milwaukee is playing some of their best baseball of the year. The Brewers are starting Julio Teheran, who has allowed 4, 6, and 7 earned runs over his last three starts. Atlanta is starting Bryce Elder, who has allowed 12 earned runs over his last two starts (6 IP). Neither starting pitcher has been very sharp recently and I think the Braves will have a huge day off of Teheran. Take the over here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
