Preview

The Braves and Philadelphia Phillies will play game 2 and the last of their 2-Game series at Truist Park in Atlanta on Wednesday, Atlanta is 1-0 in this series so far and also leading the record between both teams in this season 6-5.

Atlanta Braves 

Alanta Braves have extended their winning streak to 4 games now after they have beaten Philadelphia 13-1 at home on Tuesday, Atlanta Braves have absolutely demolished Philly in that game as it's shown in the score. Morton will be on the mound for Atlanta in the next game and he didn't really perfome well when he faced Philadelphia last week. Atlanta are 4th in runs scored and 9th in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Charlie Morton (5-5, 4.34 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in game 2 on Wednesday, Morton's last start was against Philadelphia Phillies and he went 5 innings allowing 4 earned runs and had 5 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 2-7 loss for the Braves.

Philadelphia Phillies 

Philadelphia Phillies have lost their 5 games winning streak with a loss to the Braves and it was a painful one too. Philadelphia will be looking for revenge on this game but it won't be any easy anytime you are playing Atlanta especially at home. Nelson have allowed 2 earned runs in 2 innings pitched in game 1 so Zach will try to perform better to get a win here for Philly. Phillies are 5th in runs scored and 10th in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Zach Wheeler (9-5, 2.77 ERA) will be on the mound for the Phillies in game 2 on Wednesday, Wheeler's last start was against Pittsburgh Pirates and he went 7 innings allowing 2 earned runs and had 8 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 8-7 win for the Phillies.

Atlanta Braves have gone Over the total in 9 of last 13 games.

Atlanta Braves are 5-1 Straight up last 6 games.

Atlanta Braves are 6-1 straight up last 7 home games.

Philadelphia Phillies have gone Over the total in 4 of last 5 games Vs the Braves on the road.

Philadelphia Phillies are 5-1 Straight up last 6 games.

Philadelphia Phillies are 7-1 straight up last 8 road games.

Prediction
Philadelphia Phillies got absolutely destroyed in the first game of the series last night and that's why I like them to get revenge today and get a good bounce back on the road here. Philly is 7-1 straight up last 8 road games and they will have the better pitcher in this game so I like them as a small Underdog in this game to get the win Vs the Braves.
PICK: Philadelphia Phillies ML (+120).
