Early Game Discount Casher - 23-8-2 MLB Totals Run

Atlanta vs. Pittsburgh, 06/06/2019 12:35 EDT, Score: 1 - 6

Total: +100/+9½ Under

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Result: Win

Hey Kevin Glausman isn't pitching so the Under should be safe. Kidding aside, the pitching matchup is Mike Foltynewicz versus Chris Archer.

Both Foltynewicz and Archer have struggled this season. But lately both have shown signs of pitching much better. Foltynewicz's fastball and slider have been sharper during his last three starts. Archer had his most efficient start of the year against the Brewers this past Friday. Archer has a 1.08 ERA in two career starts against Atlanta.

There are other key elements that point to an Under. This is a day game following a late Wednesday night game that didn't end until after midnight due a two-hour rain delay. The Braves didn't have to use any of their best bullpen arms last night. There could be some key bats being rested because of the short turnaround and this being a getaway game.

Rob Drake is slated to be the home plate umpire. The Under is 17-9 (65 percent) the past two seasons when he has been behind the plate, including 8-2 Under this year.
