Braves vs Giants Best Bests

I think the MLB brings out the juiced balls for Sunday Night Baseball.

We’ve got a young guy for the Braves who has a 5.00 ERA, and the Giants bullpen pitching to the most electric offense in baseball.

That smells like the over to me.

The Pick: ATL/SF Over 9.5 (-120) Bovada

As always, I do have some player props to target as well.

Player Props

Austin Riley over 1.5 Bases (+106) Bovada

Sunday Night Baseball Braves Giants Best Bets

You can never go wrong backing any of the Braves hitters, but I’ve chosen Riley tonight.

He bats .278 against RHP this year, and has 22/24 doubles and 22/30 HR against them.

Riley clears this line in 53% of his L30 road games, and in 7 of his L10 as well.

He totals 27 bases in his L10 road games.

Against San Francisco, Riley has a hit in 4/5 games, but only cleared this line in 2/5.

He did so last night with a home run, and tonight I see him doing it again.

Wilmer Flores over 1.5 Bases (+108)

Sunday Night Baseball Braves Giants Best Bets

Flores smashes left-handed pitchers.

He bats .344 against them this year, and has 12 of his 19 doubles against RHP.

Shuster allows RHP to hit .256 against him and has given up 22/28 singles, 7/8 doubles, both triples, and 3/4 HR to right handed batters.

Flores has cleared this number in 6 of his L10 home games, totaling 21 bases, 3 home runs and 2 doubles in that stretch.

He has a hit in 4/5 games against Atlanta this year, and has cleared this bases line in 2 of those 5, with 2 home runs this year.

I like him to knock a couple bases for us for plus money tonight.
