The Braves are 7-19 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series and 7-3 in Teherans last 10 starts. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 1-5 in Nicolinos last 6 starts. The Braves are 8-2 in Teherans last 10 starts vs. Marlins.
The Marlins are on fire at home right now and clearly want to build something positive as they head into next season. The Braves are just so hard to back with their inconsistent ways. I'll take a chance with the fish at home and the plus money.
