Score: 3 - 6
Money Line: +146 Atlanta
This is a 10* play on the Atlanta Braves.
The Braves edged out Miami at home last night, and they are now 28-22 at Turner Field this season. The Fish are one of the worst road teams in baseball, with a record of 17-36 away from Marlins Park. I don't know how anyone can justify Miami being such a big favorite in this game, even with it's ace on the mound.
Jose Fernandez has enjoyed a triumphant return since coming back from Tommy John surgery, and he threw a season high 112 pitches in his last start. He's still undefeated at home in his career, but his numbers on the road tell a much different story. He's allowed five runs on nine hits over 13 innings on the road this year, and he was 4-8 with a 3.93 ERA in 16 road starts prior to this season.
The Braves hand the ball to Julio Teheran, who is another Jekyll and Hyde pitcher that is much better in his home park. Teheran (7-6, 4.59 ERA) allowed a pair of runs on eight hits over seven innings in a 6-2 with at Philly his last time out. He's 5-1 with a 2.37 ERA in 10 starts at home this season.
Teheran is 1-0 with a 1.57 ERA in two starts versus Miami this season.
