Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
This has the chance to be a very good and entertaining series. These games matter an awful lot for both teams.
Atlanta is the better team and I feel they will show that on Tuesday. It will be no easy task going against Wheeler, though.
This could turn into a very good pitcher’s duel. I like Morton to pitch a little better than Wheeler and lead his team to a victory.
I will go with the Braves as slight favorites here.
