Cleveland Guardians vs Atlanta Braves prediction

The Braves are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, and they're the sexy team with all of the big names. However, the Cleveland Guardians continue to rack up wins and oddsmakers keep disrespecting them with these crazy lines. It's also fair to say that Tanner Bibee has more upside than the 40-year-old Charlie Morton. Until the Guardians start to burn a hole in my pocket, I'll continue to back them, especially at prices like this. Give me the road dog.
