Atlanta Braves vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. The Braves claimed 14 consecutive matches, including eight in a row on the road.

 

They are on a roll offensively, scoring five runs in five consecutive games. Thompson pitched well for the Cubs in the past, but he struggled recently, giving up 15 runs in his previous three outings, and will have difficulties slowing down Atlanta’s attack.

 

The Cubs dropped their past 10 games, including their last six at home. They struggled offensively in recent games, scoring only 20 runs in their past seven.

 

Even though Morton was weak on the mound in recent outings, the Cubs lack the firepower to stay up with the Braves, therefore the Braves should win large. The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
