On the heels of a 2-0 day we did the splits yesterday but look to get back on track with another sweep in our MLB picks to start the weekend.

Phillies (61-92, -12.1 Units) at Braves (68-83, -1.1 Units)

  • Atlanta is 46-72 (-25.1 Units) in home games in night games over the last two seasons.
  • Atlanta is 9-13 (-7.2 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record in the second half of the season.
  • Atlanta is 35-43 (-9.6 Units) in home games this season.
  • Philadelphia is 22-20 (+12.8 Units) against left-handed starters this season.
  • Philadelphia is 34-33 (+9.4 Units) against division opponents this season.
  • Philadelphia is 12-4 (+9.1 Units) against the Braves this season.

We don’t normally back bad teams but this column is designed with the MLB odds firmly in mind. And it is because of the generous return being offered on the Phillies that we will back them against a team they have dominated this season. Philadelphia is 12-4 (+9.1 Units) against the Braves this season with Ben Lively taking the hill for the Phillies tonight. The 25-year-old righty should have a fresh arm after pitching only three innings in his last start which was delayed for well over an hour. Lively did not return to that 5-3 win over Oakland but he has been pitching well as of late with a 1-1 record and a 2.99 ERA complemented by a 0.89 WHIP.

The pitching matchup favors the Phillies as Atlanta will send Sean Newcomb to the hill who is 2-6 with a 4.68 ERA at home this season. In addition, Philadelphia has won four of their last six while Atlanta has dropped four of its last five. Let’s back the Phillies who have all the advantages in their column – including the price!

Cubs (85-67, -15.2 Units) at Brewers (81-72, +17.1 Units)

  • Milwaukee is 50-37 (+13.2 Units) at home when the total is 9 to 9.5 over the last two seasons.
  • Milwaukee is 52-46 (+11.0 Units) in night games this season.
  • Milwaukee is 64-56 (+14.3 Units) against right-handed starters this season.
  • Chicago is 26-30 (-13.3 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record this season.
  • Chicago is 64-54 (-18.8 Units) against right-handed starters this season.
  • Chicago is 10-14 (-9.2 Units) when playing on Friday this season.

The Brewers have flown under the radar this season in terms of profitability. Although they may not even make the postseason, this club has delivered over 17 units to their backers and that’s not a bad return if you were betting them game after game this season. However, nobody picks a team and just consistently bets them blindly but they are a dangerous club who gets overlooked by the betting public.

Hopefully, the Brew Crew is again up to the task as they look to rebound from a 5-3 loss to the visiting Cubs tonight as these clubs are dead even at 8-8 in their 16 meetings this year. Milwaukee’s starter tonight, Brandon Woodruff, hurled a solid seven innings of three run ball in his team’s 10-3 win over the Marlins in his last appearance and he will get to go against a Cubs’ lineup that has never faced him. Look for a strong response from the Brewers after their loss last night to the mercurial Chicago Cubs and back them in your MLB picks!
