Atlanta Braves vs New York Yankees Prediction

The New York Yankees are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but they're having a bit of a funky week. Also, as talented as Marcus Stroman may be, he's had struggles at times at home this season. Moreover, Charlie Morton is an above average pitcher you don't usually get in the underdog role. Heck, you don't get the Braves as underdogs most nights. I like the value of the Braves and the plus money in game 2 against the Yankees.
