The Braves are showing tons of value at this price with Kris Medlen on the mound. The southpaw has been unhittable through 4 starts, as evidenced by his 1.05 ERA and 0.896 WHIP. Dating back to 2010, the Braves are a perfect 15-0 in his last 15 starts, winning those by an average of 3.4 runs per game. They have won this season's 4 starts by an average of 5.75 runs per game.
The Nationals are just 2-5 in their last 7 games as a home underdog while the Braves are 18-6 in their last 24 games as a road favorite. The Braves are being favored for a reason here. Take Atlanta.
