Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #905 Friday 10* Top Play Atlanta Braves Money Line (-) @ Miami Marlins @ 7:10 ET - Some may be enticed to take the home dog Marlins here with Sandy Alcantara on the mound but, in typical contrarian fashion for me, I am fading the early line move here and going with the small road favorite. The Braves will be "locked in" here after blowing back to back games at Philadelphia with the Phillies walking off each of the last two games in dramatic fashion. This insures the proper focus from the Braves here and I like the fact that Charlie Morton has been pitching better in recent starts as the veteran has returned to better form again. He'll be facing a Marlins team that is off a win but that victory was preceded by losses in 10 of 12 games. The Braves had won 9 of 14 before the two heartbreaking losses at Philly. These teams have records that are not too far apart but I still feel strongly that the Braves are the much better team and, as such, this is fantastic line value with Atlanta as a small favorite. Bounce back spot for the Braves and they get the job done here. 10* ATLANTA

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.
