Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams could catch the Mets in their division if they play good baseball. I think it has the opportunity to be a very good series. I like the Braves in the first one.
Even without Acuna Jr., I think the Braves are the better team. I look for them to show that on Thursday.
Atlanta has the pitching advantage with Morton on the Hill. I think he will toss a solid game and the Braves will be able to hit around Moore.
I like the Braves as favorites on the road here.
