This is an 8* on ATLANTA

Atlanta continues to pace the NL East, a division which they’ve led most of the way. They won yesterday, for the first time as a road underdog of +125 to +175 (0-7 previously), beating Max Scherzer and Washington 8-4. That was the Braves’ 4th win in 5 games, a stretch which began with a 29-9 victory over Miami. Tonight they’re in Baltimore to face an Orioles team that had a BAD weekend. The O’s got swept in New York, pretty much ending any hope that they could make a Cinderella run to the postseason. They scored a grand total of three runs in the four-game series, so Atlanta’s Touki Toussant has to like his chances in tonight’s start. Touissant should aim to hold Baltimore to three runs or fewer as the Orioles are 0-16 this year when that happens. Looking at Atlanta’s offense, the 4-1 stretch coincides with manager Brian Snitker deciding to “load up” the top of his batting order with Acuna Jr, Freeman & Ozuna in the top three spots. The Braves have scored 7 or more runs four times since that change and 53 runs total. Orioles starter Jorge Lopez has made only three starts in 2020 and none have been quality. He gave up five runs in the last one. Play on ATLANTA
