The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Atlanta's last 11 games at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Atlanta's last 11 games against an opponent in the National League.
The Braves offense couldn't do much against an outstanding performance from Max Scherzer but they might have better chances against Peterson as they have scored at least 3 runs in each of the last 3 meetings. Spencer Strider will get the ball for the Braves and he has been sharp lately allowing only 1 run in his last 18 innings pitched. The Braves should be able to bounce back and be better offensively against Peterson. Take the Braves.
