Pick
ATL (-167) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on ATLANTA. The Phillies jumped all over the Braves right out of the gate yesterday, en route to a 12-2 blowout win. I fully expect the Braves to respond today. Anderson has a stellar 2.04 ERA his past three starts. Velasquez checks in off a quality start. However, keep in mind that was just the second time since 2019 that he's pitched six or more innings. He still allowed a home run, his fifth allowed in the past three games, a span of only 14 1/3 innings. Anderson, on the other hand, hasn't served up a long ball in any of his past four starts, a span of 22 2/3 innings. Look for the Braves to bounce back, moving to 48-24 their past 72, when listed as a home favorite in the -125 to -175 range.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
