The Braves are 2-8 in their last 10 meetings in Boston. Atlanta is 8-25 in the last 33 meetings overall.

I don't think the Braves will have an answer for Sale. Simple as that. Foltynewicz has been solid thus far this season, but navigating through the Boston offense at Fenway is an entirely different challenge Go with the hosts here and don't be afraid to bet on the runline.
