Atlanta at PHILADELPHIA (-120)
By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper
There are going to be tough times in this racket, trust me.
And right now is one of those times.
Nonetheless, there's always a silver lining. And since Nov. 12, 2016, my $1 players have made $60,076. That's after a 1000♦ Winner on the Mets Run Line (+120) on Sunday.
Today I am putting some of that money to work in baseball.
I love one play tonight, and it's the underdog in this game.

The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies just played at the end of the April, and we saw this same pitching matchup during that series. Mike Foltynewicz beat Nick Pivetta, and now the Phils are at home.
I'm listing both as I think Pivetta is getting revenge.
The Philadelphia right-hander had arguably the best start of his career last Wednesday, against the Orioles, who he limited to two hits while striking out a career-high 11 over seven innings. Pivetta does a good job when locating his fastball up in the zone, as he becomes hard to hit, and easy to chase.
He'll have the Braves guessing tonight.
With Foltynewicz, we have a guys who is coming off of a 10-strikeout performance in his last start against the Cubs on Tuesday, but he does have a 3.60 ERA in his last three starts. He will get rocked in Philly, where the Phillies are hitting a league ninth-best .257 at Citizens Bank Park.
Take the Phils tonight.

That's more than $18 Grand in roughly four months.
Let's parlay that money into dividends, with my Blowout of the Month.

4-Run Rout... at least!!
On to my complimentary winner...
My free play is the New York Mets over the Miami Marlins in National League East action in Queens.
Talk about a wacky division, the East has taken on a new complexion with the Washington Nationals sitting in fourth place in the division, and the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies atop it.
Right in the middle is New York, which has won three in a row and is now 11-11 at home after a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday. For as sad as this team has been playing, the Mets have looked much better of late, and are surging a bit all of a sudden.
Derek Jeter's Marlins is in the cellar with a 17-29 record, they have a 7-14 road mark, they've lost two straight and they arrive after a gut-wrenching 10-9 loss in Atlanta on Sunday.
No way we're going to see the Marlins respond 24 hours later to play a hot Mets team.

My free winner for today.
I will get to my analysis in just a moment, but first...
My $10 bettors up $18,080 over the last 74 days. Not bad for 10 1/2 weeks.
Tonight the Eastern Conference gets back underway, and I love the total between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.
My 60 Dime Winner # 5 of 7 is the easiest total of this series.
My Eastern Conference Final Total of the Year.

My free play is on the Milwaukee Brewers, as I like them to take advantage of the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Snakes arrive after being swept by the New York Mets, and are now in jeopardy of falling out of first place in the National League West. They've lost nine of 10, and the Colorado Rockies are on their heels.
Milwaukee is atop the N.L. Central, leading the clogged division by 1 1/2 games over the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates. The Brewers have won seven of 10 and are one game above .500 at home.
Play the Brewers here, as they return home after losing in Minnesota yesterday, looking for redemption.
