The Braves will turn to Touki Toussaint in game one of this series to try and stop the bleeding after the Braves were swept at home by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first part of the week. Toussaint gets the promotional start after getting the win on Saturday in relief where he gave up only one run (un earned) in 6 innings pitched against the New York Mets. Toussaint sits at 1-0 on the year with a 0.00 ERA and 7 strikeouts.
Over their last two series’, the Braves have gone just 2-7, and are desperate to get some wins on the road against Cleveland as they now sit 2.5 games behind Philadelphia in the National League East. Atlanta comes into this game averaging 5.05 runs per game, but only scored close to that once during the Arizona series, and are giving up an average of 4.61 runs per game to their opponents.
The Indians will look to their ace Corey Kluber to get the win in game one. Kluber was knocked around in his last start against Kansas City, giving up 6 runs while failing to get one out registered in the third inning. That start moved his record to 1-2 on the year with an inflated ERA of 6.16 and 21 strikeouts.
Cleveland is coming off a three game sweep of the Seattle Mariners to start their week, and hope get a win here to keep some space between them and the second place Minnesota Twins. The Indians are averaging 3.5 runs per game while giving up an average of 3.38 runs to their foes. The Indians have lost only once at Progressive Field so far this season.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Braves are slumping as we close in on the end of the first month of the season, and couple that with an Indians team that dominates at home, and Atlanta could be in for yet another long evening under the lights.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the number
Take the Indians to win this game at home, and for the score to be UNDER the number. I highly doubt we will see the same Corey Kluber out there as we did last time he toed the rubber, so this one should be low scoring.
