The Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies will battle today from Turner Field. All odds on all games can be found at Top Bet Sportsbook.
The Braves have been playing solid baseball this season and if the season ended today they would be a wildcard team. They still trail the Nationals by 4.5 games in the division and will look to make up ground starting tonight. They will start Ben Sheets who has yet to allow an earned run in 12 innings pitched this season.
The Phillies coming to this game riding a four game winning streak although it looks to be too late for them to make a playoff push. They have been led all season on offense by Carlos Ruiz and on the mound by Cole Hamels who will take the mound tonight. Hamels is just allowed 117 hits in 133 innings of work this season.
Atlanta is 9-2 in their last 11 games following a win, 5-2 in their last seven home games, and 2-5 in their last seven home games against a team with a losing record. Philadelphia is 4-1 in their last five road games, 7-19 in their last 26 games as an underdog, and 1-4 in Hamels’ last five starts. The Phillies are 5-1 in their last six games in Atlanta.
We really like the pitching matchup in this game that is why we are going to take the under for total runs scored at best sports books.
