Atlanta Braves vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Off the bat, I like the Reds in this one.
To me, these teams are fairly even. Both teams had high expectations this year and are not living up to them. I also like the fact that the Reds are at home.
Tyler Mahle is the better pitcher and has much more experience than Muller has. He has been very good this year and I expect him to continue that on Sunday. I feel like the Reds will be able to hit around Muller enough to get a win.
I will lay the -135 with the Reds.
