Score: 5 - 6
Money Line: -154 Atlanta
8* Atlanta (7:05 ET): What was a "meaningless" run to many proved costly to us last night here in Philly. Down 7-1 in the bottom of the ninth, the home team scored and that sent the game Over. We had the Under. Nevertheless, we don't get mad, we get even and that's what will do here w/ the Phillies. Atlanta has been red hot of late, winning 10 of their last 11 (only loss was Sunday). Meanwhile, Philadelphia is ready to fade. They've remained in the playoff hunt despite a negative YTD run differential. Last night showed that there's a big game between them and the Braves right now. It also helps Atlanta is 14-2 this season as a road favorite in the -125 to -175 price range.
There's a lot of hot starters in the Braves' rotation right now. Last night's starter Mike Foltynewicz now has a 10-0 TSR his L10 outings after last night's win. Tonight's starter Max Fried enters tonight w/ a 9-0 TSR his L9. He's 16-4 on the year and has a 0.722 WHIP his L3 times out. Overall, the team is 21-6 when he pitches, including 11-2 at home. Fried tossed seven shutout innings his last time out and allowed only one hit vs. Washington. He has 20 strikeouts and just one walk his L2 starts. Fried has made two starts against the Phillies in 2019 and the Braves have won both.
Jason Vargas, who moved from one NL East team (Mets) to another has seen Atlanta plenty of times his career. But just once this year and it was all the way back in April. While that was a long time ago, it was also the shortest stint of the year. He got just one out and exited after allowing four runs. His work for the Phillies hasn't been all that impressive so far. He has a 6.46 ERA and 1.566 WHIP his L3 starts. These are two teams trending in very different directions. 8* Atlanta
