Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #977 Tuesday 10* Top Play Atlanta Braves Money Line (+) @ Minnesota Twins @ 8:10 ET - Certainly the Twins and Jose Berrios deserve respect at home. However, this line is really showing absolutely no respect to a Braves team that has the 2nd best record in the National League and also has a respectable pitcher on the mound here. Mike Foltneywicz may not have good numbers this season but after his demotion to the minors don't be surprised when he comes back with plenty of fire and passion for tonight's start. Instead of sulking about his demotion to AAA Gwinnett, Foltneywicz worked on his pitches, showed great improvement with his slider, and went 5-1 in ten starts in the minors. In his last 3 starts there he compiled a 1.13 ERA. He'll be ready tonight. Also, Foltneywicz had a 2.85 ERA and held opponents to a .195 batting average last season. As for the Twins Berrios, yes he is off back to back strong starts but the most recent one was against miserable Miami. Also, lets talk about the form Berrios had in his prior recent starts which included some quality opposition. Berrios allowed 26 hits, walked 9, and hit 3 batters in his 4 prior starts which spanned 23 innings. Atlanta is off back to back losses and they are 6-1 the last 7 times they've entered a game off 2 or more consecutive losses. Also, the Twins are a money-burning 7-12 (-$11,400) this season as a home favorite of -125 to -175. I am grabbing the big dog value with a Braves team whose 34 road wins on the season ranks them #1 in the National League. 10* ATLANTA
