Prediction

Pick: Over 8.0 runs

The over/under line for this game is set at 8.0 runs. Given Arizona’s strong hitting and Atlanta’s solid offense, coupled with the fact that both teams have had games going over the total in recent matches, the over seems like a solid bet. Additionally, both starting pitchers have respectable ERAs but are not invincible, which could lead to a higher-scoring game.
