Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Atlanta and San Francisco, the Braves have a slight edge on the moneyline. Even though the Giants’ bats are prone to inconsistency, look for them to pull out a win as Charlie Morton has also been up and down all season. I like San Francisco on the moneyline.
