4* NL BLOCKBUSTER DIAMOND ANNIHILATOR

---Atlanta Braves -136---

I cashed with the Braves on my free pick last night and with tonight's matchup I'm going to up the ante. Atlanta's Kris Medlen hasn't quite had the season everyone expected, but he's still got a very respectable 3.45 ERA over 18 starts. The key here is that Medlen supports a healthy 2.83 ERA at home.

What really makes this a strong play is the struggles that Bronson Arroyo has had on the road. He's 1-5 with a 5.70 ERA. He's allowed on average just over a home run a game on the road, and that's bad news when you face an Atlanta offense that lives off the long ball. Arroyo allowed 4 runs on 8 hits (1HR) in five innings of a 4-7 loss to the Braves at home earlier this season and now has a 5.46 ERA and 1.660 WHIP in 16 career starts vs Atlanta. BET THE BRAVES!
