Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction: Check Out This +950 BetMGM Prop

I have a unique pick that you can find exclusively on BetMGM Sportsbook. These are fun bets that remind me a lot of first baskets in the NBA for those who have not done them yet. The one we are looking at for tonight is going to be a first-hit prop. So basically, we are going to bet someone to get the first hit of the game. This can happen in the first inning or the seventh as long as we get that first hit, we are golden! I will be turning to my Phillies and the Atlanta Braves game tonight.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

The Braves took the first two games of this series, so the Phillies will be looking to steal this game tonight with Aaron Nola on the mound and salvage the series. I am going with the first-hit bet on Kyle Schwarber. He hits number one in this lineup, and I am willing to take a big chance that Nola has a clean top of the first.

Percentages would suggest this is a great play for the odds that we get Kyle. He hits extremely well off right-handed pitching and should be able to get to Ian Anderson if he gets a pitch or two to handle. We need a clean first inning from Nola, who has been terrific this season, and a good at-bat by Schwarber! Let’s cash this big dog in.
