Philly knows that if they want to compete they have to be able to beat the Braves. They took the opener and are in a great spot to get game two too with an advantage on the mound. Maybe these teams are closer than expected this season.
It is just one game but the Braves offense was pretty lame. Ronald Acuna Jr. got a couple of hits so perhaps he is getting to another gear this season and grabbing the MVP award, finally. Pablo Sandoval hit a pinch-hit home run. Yes, Kung Fu Panda is still in the game, but that homer accounted for half the offense.
Charlie Morton was brought in to provide some depth in the rotation and playoff experience, he has been a part of several World Series teams. He is returning to the National League and switching organizations. The question is whether the Braves can get as much out of him as the Astros and Rays.
Philly is one of those teams that needs to get off to a good start. Mission accomplished with a win over the Braves on opening day behind a solid outing from Aaron Nola. Every player in the lineup got a hit save one yesterday and the bullpen gave up just one hit in relief. That is very encouraging.
Zack Wheeler had a good first season with the Phillies last season. He was working deeper into games and was definitely not the reason the team struggled overall. If the bullpen can stay strong for the season he could be a sneaky Cy Young play. I will be looking to ride him in this one.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I liked the Phillies in G1 with Nola over Fried and I like them even better in the game on Saturday. Wheeler is really good and I like the spot off a win at home.

The odds are going to be about even for this one too which will make it one of the better value of the day. Not many teams have #2s as good as Wheeler.
