Atlanta Braves vs New York Yankees Prediction

The Atlanta Braves and a cheap price with Sale on the mound is intriguing. However, the Yankees as home dogs is even more appealing. The New York Yankees are arguably the best team in baseball, and this will be just the third time this season they're home underdogs. Carlos Rodon also has held his own this season with a 3.28 ERA, and he's been even better at home. The value is with the Yankees and the more favorable price. I'll take it.
