Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Braves need to continue playing good baseball if they wish to gain ground in their division. I look for them to play well in this one.
Atlanta is the better team and they should be able to take care of business against a below average Marlins team. These are games they must win if they want to get in the playoffs.
Charlie Morton is the better and more experience pitcher. I look for him to toss a good game in this one and for the Braves to hit around Thompson enough to get a win.
The moneyline is too expensive in this one, so I will lay the run line with the Bravos.
