The Atlanta Braves play host to the New York Mets Tuesday night in Atlanta. Charlie Morton will go for the Atlanta Braves. He was a record of 7-3 and a 3.57 ERA. The New York Mets will throw rookie Tylor Megill. He has a ERA of 4.15 and his only start came last week against the Braves. The Braves have a major edge in starting pitching tonight.

The Pick: Braves ML (-166) 

The Why: Charlie Morton vs Mets

Charlie Morton’s last time out was against the Mets. He sat struck out 11 and made it a very easy night. In two starts against the Mets, Morton has only given up one earned run and three hits in 13 innings pitched. In the month of June he is 3-1 and has a ERA of 2.28. Also, in his last seven outings, the Braves have won six.

The Braves bats will get a second look in a week at Tylor Megill. The rookie pitched 4.1 innings in his first outing but was starting to get hit and letting guys on before he was yanked. At home the Braves bats come alive as they average 5.2 runs on close to eight hits with an average of .247 and a OPS of .793. Ronald Acuna Jr. has hit the ball very well at home with an average of .289 and 14 homers.

All in all we’re taking the Braves to get last the Mets. Charlie Morton should continue his dominance over a injured Mets lineup without their better bats. I really like the Braves chances at home to get some runs of the rookie Megill early and often to build the lead. Take the Braves
