Marlins vs. Braves Prediction

I’m on the Braves -1.5 here. The Braves are simply the more trustworthy lineup and they’ve started crushing left-handed pitching again like they did for a large chunk of last season. The Marlins’ offense continues to be hit or miss, and Elder was a valuable part of Atlanta’s rotation last season. I think Atlanta keeps it rolling here with a -1.5 cover against the Fish.

Chris’s Pick Atlanta -1.5
