Money Line: +110 Atlanta
The Atlanta Braves are showing solid value as an underdog to the Cincinnati Reds tonight. There's no question which team will be more motivated heading into this one as the Braves are looking to avoid a 4-game sweep after losing the first three games of this series.
Look for the Reds to relax, while the Braves push hard to try and avoid the embarrassment of getting swept. Atlanta sends underrated starter Randall Delgado to the mound tonight as he looks to continue his recent success. Delgado has posted a 2.75 ERA over his last three starts.
Delgado faced Cincinnati at home on May 14th, not allowing a single earned run in 6 2/3 innings of work. Homer Bailey gets the ball for Cincinnati, and he's just 2-3 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.447 WHIP in eight starts this season. Bailey is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.500 WHIP over his last three starts.
The Braves are 5-0 in their last 5 games as an underdog of +110 to +150. Cincinnati is 3-10 in their last 13 during game 4 of a series. Atlanta is 10-2 in their last 12 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. The Braves are 7-2 in their last 9 games following a loss. Roll with Atlanta Thursday.
