Randy’s Pick

The Braves continue to pile up the wins at an elite rate, and we shouldn’t expect much different here. Spencer Strider is one of the best pitchers in baseball with a 3.81 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 274 strikeouts which leads baseball. Joan Adon and his 6.42 ERA just doesn’t compare. The Braves don’t have anything to play for in this contest, but they should win given the glaring gap between starting pitchers. Give me the Braves and the RL for max betting value.
