The Atlanta Braves are taking on the Philadelphia Phillies and John Hyslop is going to Tucker Davidson in this game for his play.

Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Prediction: Expect Tucker Davidson To Light Up the Phillies

We need some new blood in the Slop Circle of Trust. It's not that I don't like the guys that are currently in it, it's just that any circle of trust is better with more people. That's just how circles of trust work. Everyone knows that. Trusting people is so much better than not trusting people. It's that simple. Obviously, you can't trust everyone, but when you realize you can trust someone, it's magic. That magic feeling was what I was going for when I looked at the MLB lines today. We're not even to summer yet so it's important we get as many guys in the circle of trust as possible. Lucky for us, I found the perfect guy and the books are sleeping all over him. It's actually disgusting. Let's dive into the Braves vs. Phillies odds, predictions, and picks.

Braves vs. Phillies Line Movement

Tucker Davidson 5+ Strikeouts (+180) (Bet $100 to win $180)

This one is hanging at FanDuel as we speak and it's majestic. Obviously, if you don't have FanDuel then you're probably looking at 3.5 for minus money. Both DraftKings and BetMGM have that at the moment but that could flip to a 4.5 for plus money before the day is done. There is still hope people.

Tucker Davidson. I like this guy's name. It sounds like a kid that definitely smoked cigarettes in middle school and was also the first kid in the friend group to try every drug when he got to high school. Now I'm not sure if this Tucker Davidson did all of that but I'm sure there is a Tucker Davidson somewhere out there that did. Maybe even more than one. Tucker Davidson is just a sweet name.

One thing I do know about Tucker Davidson is he is no bum. I am 99% sure he got into the Slop Circle of Trust last year with a five strikeout performance. He hasn't been very close to five in a game this season but he's only pitched twice. One time was against the Washington Nationals which doesn't even count since they never strike out. The other time they only let him throw 69 pitches so that doesn't count either.

Tonight is the perfect opportunity for us since the Braves will likely let this kid go 80+ pitches. Maybe more. It's perfect because his opponent, the Philadelphia Phillies, have struck out more against lefties than every other team in MLB except the Baltimore Orioles. They have at least six guys that could be in the batting order tonight that are 25+% strikeout guys over the last couple weeks. This could be the greatest bet of our entire lives.
