The Atlanta Braves welcome in the Milwaukee Brewers in Major League Baseball action today. The game is scheduled for a 4:10 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on FOX Sports 1. Currently the odds for the game have the Braves favored to pick up the win here at home.
The Milwaukee Brewers are trying to claw out of the cellar, but they certainly dug themselves a big hole early. They've been on the opposite end of blowout games the past two against Atlanta as well, falling 10-1 on Thursday but picking up an 11-0 victory Friday. Finding a safe medium, where they give a consistent effort, would probably help Milwaukee win more games.
Atlanta sends Shelby Miller to the mound to make things worse for the Brewers. Miller, acquired in the off-season for Jayson Haywerd, is now 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA for the season, but it's his last two starts that have really been impressive.
Miller has won two decisions in his last three starts, both complete games, where he allowed just a single run and eight hits in 25 innings. Miller nearly no-hit the Miami Marlins in his last start, but gave up a couple of base hits in the ninth with two outs. Will he have some type of hangover in this one tonight? Milwaukee has been hitting the ball better, but Miller will be too much here at home.
Free Pick: Atlanta
NFL Free Pick: Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
According to professional sports bettor Steve Fezzik, the early bird can catch a profitable worm if they put money down on Green Bay's opening week showing against the Chicago Bears. With the line currently at -4.5 at most Vegas sports books, Fezzik predicts it will move to -6.5 come game day, as no one is going to be betting on the Jay Cutler-helmed Bears, so the money will pour in on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. With that being the case, time strike early while the iron is hot.
