Score: 8 - 4
Money Line: -111 Atlanta
The Atlanta Braves have several advantages coming into today's matchup against the Cincinnati Reds. First of all, over their past seven games they are scoring 5.6 runs per game compared to just 4.0 runs per game on the road for the Reds. They will also have an advantage with Julio Teheran getting the start compared to Tony Cingrani for Cincinnati.
In his last three starts Teheran has been lethal, posting a 1.96 ERA. The Braves are 11-6 in all games where Teheran was the starter. Cingrani has managed to secure just three wins in nine starts and he has given up 10 home runs in those nine games. A pitcher that has trouble avoiding home runs is not one you want on the mound when facing the Atlanta Braves.
The Reds are 1-8 in their last nine games as an underdog and they are 4-10 in their last 14 road games. They are up against a Braves team that is 6-1 in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. Atlanta is also 4-0 in Teheran's last four home starts against a team with a winning record.
