BETTING TRENDS

Miami are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.

Miami are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Atlanta.

Atlanta are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games at home.

Atlanta are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against Miami.

Prediction

The Marlins continue to struggle on the road as they have won only one game so far and lost 5, they're also 1-4 last 5 games playing in Atlanta. The Braves are by far the better team and Ian Anderson had a second great game after allowing 5 runs in his first. Take the Braves to win the second of the series.
