Braves vs Cubs Game Prediction

The Cubs are everyone’s favorite just like the Yankees used to be. The thing about that is a lot of people will be on them blindly. Remember, the Cubs will lose over 50 games this season and picking your spots can be very profitable. Hammels is not pitching well. Lucas Harrell is auditioning for the Braves so he can get traded to a contender next month. I am going to take two bets on this game. I am placing 30% of my money on the Braves money line at +240 and I will place 70% on the Braves run line (+1.5) at +120.

Score Prediction:
Braves 5 – Cubs 4
