ROGERS’ 3-GAME MLB SWEEPER DESTRUCTION PASS > > BREAK OUT THE BROOMS!
Atlanta vs. Philadelphia,
09/10/2019 19:05 EDT,
Score: 5 - 6
Money Line: -154 Atlanta
The set-up: The Braves have a big opportunity to put the Phillies out of contention this weekend and I believe they build off last night’s victory. This is a bigger mismatch on the mound in my opinion than what this spread would suggest. The visitors go with Max Fried, while the home side counters with Jason Vargas.
The pitchers: Fried (16-4, 3.86 ERA) enters off a gem, going seven scoreless and allowing only one hit vs. the Nationals. Fried has posted at least eight K’s in four of his past six starts and owns a 2.70 ERA in that span.
Vargas (6-7, 4.27) is 2-2 with a 5.40 ERA in seven career games vs. the Braves.
The pick: The Phillies’ offense was stymied in last night’s loss, managing just five hits. Expect that line-up to have even more difficulties vs. the red hot Fried. Lay the price.
