MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 26-20 in road games this season. Atlanta is 35-24 against right-handed starters this year.
The Brewers are 43-26 against right-handed starters this season. Milwaukee is 25-15 on Fridays the last two seasons.
Peralta showed a few cracks in the armor his last start at the Reds and now he faces a Braves offense that has slumped a bit lately, yet is good enough to heat up in a moment's notice. With Foltynewicz on the mound, the Braves shouldn't need to score a whole lot. I like Atlanta to grab the early lead and ride its talented young starter plus the bullpen the rest of the way.
