MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

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

Boston

The Red Sox are 39-12 in their last 51 interleague games. The under is 20-6 in the last 26 Boston games on Sunday.

Prediction

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.
