Stephen Nover's MLB Big Ticket Underdog Casher
(MLB) Milwaukee vs. Atlanta, 08/01/2021 1:20 PM, Score: 2 - 1
Money Line: 137.00 Milwaukee (Away)
Result: Win
The Braves have home field and the better starting pitcher. But that's it. The Brewers hold the rest of the edges and are a superior team.
Milwaukee is 19 games above .500. Atlanta has a losing record. 

The Brewers have proven themselves on the road going 33-19. 

There's too much value to pass up Milwaukee here. 

The pitching matchup is Brett Anderson versus Charlie Morton. Anderson has a 3.86 ERA. He's a bottom-of-the-rotation type starter, but a very legitimate one. Anderson is more than capable of throwing five solid innings before turning things over to a very strong Brewers bullpen. 

The Braves dealt for Adam Duvall, Jorge Soler and Eddie Rosario to beef up their offense. Their attack, though, needed beefing up after losing Ronald Acuna to injury and Marcell Ozuna to suspension. 

The right-handed Morton has a 3.72 ERA, which isn't that much lower than Anderson's. Milwaukee is 20-6 (77 percent) the past 26 times facing a righty starter. The Braves bullpen is slightly below average with a 4.39 ERA.
