Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
The Braves have been playing very well and I look for that to continue in this series against the Marlins. I do not give Miami much of a shot in this game.
Atlanta is the better team and I feel they will be too much for the Marlins to handle. The Braves cannot afford to lose to a team like this.
I feel Toussaint will have a solid outing and the Braves will do enough against whoever the starter is for the Marlins.
I am going with the Braves on the moneyline.
