Julio Teheran has had tough luck at home this season. The 25 year old right hander is winless in nine starts at Turner Field his season where he is an 0-4 record despite a 2.80 earned run average. Teheran will come in carrying a 23 consecutive scoreless inning streak. Teheran has 1.72 earned run average in his last 13 starts.
Marlins starter Justin Nicolino had a 6.89 ERA in three June starts, but he has had past success against the Braves. Nicotine is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA all time against the Braves.
Obviously the Braves offense has been a huge problem this year, which is why Teheran has a 3-7 record. The Braves production against left handed pitching this season also is a cause for doubt. However, I like the value here and I’m taking Atlanta -113. I think Teheran will be lights out once again and the Braves will provide enough run support to pull this one out.
My other free play for tonight: Detroit Tigers Money line -115 over Tampa Bay
I'm not going to pretend to have the most experience as a professional handicapper. There are so many guys who I have great respect for who have been doing this for longer than I have been born. However, in the amount of time I have been handicapping I have learned a lot lessons quickly regarding the major do's and don'ts of sports handicapping, and I continue to get better and learn more every day. And unlike most of the people who will read this bio, I do not lose money betting on sports each year. So after a few years of managing and maintaining profits, and even purchasing picks from other well known and respected "expert" handicappers, whose picks turned out to be much more expensive and less successful than my own, I decided to help fellow gamblers win money, while keeping more money in their own pockets. Honesty, customer service and long term relationships are most important to me, and WINNING of course. Join me on my journey, and let's win some money!
