Prediction

Pick: Atlanta Braves -1.5

The Atlanta Braves have dominated the season series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, holding a 5-0 record. With Charlie Morton on the mound, the Braves have a reliable starter who can keep the Diamondbacks' offense in check. Slade Cecconi's struggles this season, with a 6.10 ERA, make it challenging for Arizona to match Atlanta's firepower. The Braves' bullpen, ranking 2nd in team ERA, further strengthens their position. Given these factors, the Braves are likely to cover the -1.5 spread.
