Money Line: -104 Atlanta
*3 Star Play on Braves ML* The Atlanta Braves rank first in the majors in weighted on base average against lefties so far this year at .373. This offense was pretty good to start the season and after adding in Acuna they are really a force. There is much more depth in this lineup than in most NL lineups, and Freddie Freeman continues to be underrated in the middle of the order.
The Mets have been badly banged up, and their season has turned south quickly in the last few days. Degrom was injured when pitching last night and was going for an MRI to see how bad the news is. They can't afford to have any more major injuries.
The Braves have the pitching edge with Teheran going against Vargas. Vargas' stuff didn't look good at all in his first start back from an injury, and he's going against a very good lineup. Teheran has been money against the Mets in the past. At Citi Field, Teheran has a sparkling 2.39 ERA in 10 starts.
