About Atlanta Braves

Teheran continues to show the league he is as one of the top hurlers in baseball. Teheran has not surrendered more than three runs or five hits in 13 of his past 15 starts, but is just 3-5 in that stretch despite a 2.15 ERA and a .188 opponents’ batting average. The one big flaw in his game is the home run ball, he has allowed 16 in 20 starts, including nine in his past nine outings.

Philadelphia vs Atlanta MLB Pick

The Phillies are playing some good young ball and it remains to be seen if they keep this team together and try and build on it or just part it out to contenders. The Braves are just a crappy team and they look like they will be one for awhile. In my book, the Phillies should be the favored team so I am all over them on the money line. Teheran is a top pitcher but he is also a little injured and I do not expect him to go deep in the game. Who else can pitch for Atlanta? Who can hit for this team? Anytime the Braves are favored take the other side.

Phillies at Braves Prediction:
Philiies 5 – Braves 2
