LINE MOVEMENT: The Phillies opened as -125 money line favorites but their odds have dropped to -122, while the Braves' odds have gone from +115 down to +113. Atlanta is 66-45 overall and 28-30 on the road, while Philadelphia is 50-60 overall and 27-25 at home.

MLB FREE PICK: Take Philadelphia. According to latest MLB trends, Atlanta is 2-6 last vs. a left-handed start, 0-4 last 4 as a dog of +110 to +1150 and 2-7 last 9 as a road dog. Philadelphia is 11-5 last 16 as a home favorite, 19-9 last 28 vs. a left-handed starter and 4-1 in Lee's last 5 home starts.

The Atlanta Braves are threatening to run away with the National League East. But they have a tough task when they try to sweep the Phillies and their best starter--Cliff Lee (10-4, 3.05 ERA) on Sunday. Every time Lee is out on the mound, the Phillies have an excellent chance to win. That's what a stopper does. Lee has 12 strikeouts and no walks in two games against the Braves this season-both wins.  Lee has beaten the Braves five of the last six times. Atlanta hits just .243 against left-handers compared to .253 vs. right-handers.  The Braves send out Travis Wood 1-2, 3.51 ERA), a lefty who has only faced the Mets (twice) and Colorado thus far. He allowed three runs in seven inning against the Rockies in his last start, but was fortunate to get tremendous run support as the Braves won 11-3. The Phillies lost in 12 innings on Saturday. On Sunday, they'll come back and salvage the series with Lee.

MLB FREE PICK: PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES -122
