Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s NL East showdown, the over-under line is set at 8.5 runs. Even though this game features two established starting pitchers, I expect there to be a lot of scoring. Both Charlie Morton and Kyle Gibson have been up and down throughout the season. I recommend taking the over.
