This is a matchup between 2 teams that have been playing well. In this game, I see the Braves success continuing.
The Braves are the better team and I have a hard time seeing the Marlins knocking them off. I feel more confident with Atlanta in this one.
This has the chance to be a very good pitchers duel. I look for the Braves to do just enough against Alcantara to get a win.
I will lay the 135 with the Braves here.
