Atlanta Braves -1½ +131

I went big with the Braves run line yesterday and cashed in a 5* play on them. Though I don't like them big again, I still think they are showing value on the run line against a Chicago club that is 19-49 in its last 68 road games and 11-42 in its last 53 in the 2nd game of a series. The Chicago offense is really struggling (.168 on-base %) and I believe its struggles will continue against Teheran, who had a 1.04 ERA in six spring starts. Braves have won 3 of their last 4 with the Cubs by 2+ runs. Bet the Braves on the run line.

Pittsburgh +1½ -120

The Pirates have not had a great start to the season, losing three of four. Their staff ace A.J. Burnett got off to a rough start, losing his first start of the season to the Cubs. Burnett allowed three runs on six hits over five innings, but recorded 10 strikeouts in a losing effort.

I expect the veteran right-hander to bounce back with a solid outing in a pitcher friendly park in L.A. tonight. The power hitters in the Dodgers lineup haven't had a lot of success against Burnett, Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp are a combined 1-for-10 with five strikeouts against him.
Not many players have good career numbers against Kershaw, but Andrew McCutchen is one of those. He's hitting .357 with a home run in 144 career at bats. Gaby Sanchez has also had success against Kershaw, he's 3-for-7 with a home run in past meetings.

The Pirates should be able to keep this one close.

Indiana Pacers vs. Washington Wizards
Play: Washington Wizards 

The Pacers had an opportunity to clinch the Central Division crown last night but a failed fourth quarter where the scored only eight points lead them to defeat again st Oklahoma City. Washington who has won eight straight at home are 0-3 against Indiana this season as the Pacers have won the last nine meetings. John Wall missed all three losses and the Pacers will find that the Wizards are a totally different club when Wall in in the line-up. In a game that will come down to the final buzzer we will take the points.
