5* Interleague *BEST BET* on Braves -152
I feel the Braves are well worth the price here.
The Orioles are just 3-8 in their last 11 games as a road underdog while the Braves are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home favorite. The Braves are 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win and 8-2 in their last 10 interleague games as a favorite. They are also an awesome 78-38 as a home favorite of -125 to -175 over the last 3 seasons.
Atlanta has the edge on the hill with Beachy, who leads the majors with a 1.98 ERA. That number is just 1.36 in his home starts. Respect is given to what Hammel has done, but his 3.76 road ERA pales in comparison and he enters with a 4.58 ERA over his last 3 starts. Plus, Hamel is 0-3 lifetime with an ERA of 9.00 versus the Braves.
The Orioles are 4-11 in the last 15 meetings overall and 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta. Bet the Braves.
