The Braves and Philadelphia Phillies will play game 1 of their 2-Game series at Truist Park in Atlanta on Tuesday, Record is now tied between both teams (5-5) after the Phillies won the last game 7-2 at home.

Atlanta Braves 

Alanta Braves have three games winning streak as they are coming off a sweeping win Vs Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 at home as they have scored 12 runs and allowed 4 runs in 3 games. Atlanta Braves have been consistently good this season so this will be a good test Vs the Phillies who have 5 straight wins. Atlanta are 4th in runs scored and 9th in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Spencer Strider (5-2, 3.14 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in game 2 on Tuesday, Strider's last start was against Philadelphia Phillies and he went 6 innings allowing 1 earned run and had 6 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 6-3 win for the Braves.

Philadelphia have scored 22 runs and allowed 12 runs in 4 games in the last series. Phillies are 6th in runs scored and 11th in runs allowed this season.

Prediction
Philadelphia Phillies is a team in a great form winning the last 5 games and in my opinion they have a lot of value in this game as a +226 Underdog. Atlanta Braves are also on a good form but I like to fade them in game 1 here at home I think they either lose or win by 1 run so give me the Phillies run line here.
