Chicago Cubs vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

The Braves saw their fourteen-game win streak snapped yesterday afternoon in a pitcher's duel that the Cubs won 1-0. We did bet on the Cubs yesterday, and that win felt good, and I have another angel I love for today's game.

Kyle Wright will get the mound for the Braves today as he will be tasked with shutting down this Cubbies lineup. The Cubs have had a tough year to this point as they knew coming into the year they were going to be in a rebuilding phase. The Braves are fresh off a World Series, so their expeditions were high entering the season.

Prior to that fourteen-game win streak, the Braves were sitting under .500. The only bad thing that happened during the Brave's win streak was the injury to all-star second basemen Ozzie Albies. Albies was put on the 60-Day DL. One player who has really stepped up during this hot run is a former number one overall pick, Dansby Swanson, who is swinging a red hot bat at the moment.

The Cubs will turn to southpaw Justin Steele to stop this high-powered Atlanta lineup.

We faded them yesterday and won, but today I am backing Atlanta on the -1 line. I love this bounce-back spot for them today against a weak arm in Steele. The Braves should be able to get to Steele early and often after being shut out yesterday afternoon. I believe in Kyle Wright and that he will be able to shut down this benign Cubs lineup. Let’s stay hot on the Diamond today!
