MLB | Atlanta 2 @ N.Y. Mets 6 | 08/06 | 11:10 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: I never like fading Max Scherzer but teams who lose the first game of a doubleheader win the second game about 70% of the time, and both these teams are good enough where I don’t think one would sweep the other. The Mets used their top relievers including Edwin Diaz in Game 1 and its not like Max Fried isn’t capable of outdueling Scherzer. The Mets also won’t be able to use their deadline acquisitions in Tyler Naquin and Daneil Vogelbach as they’re both lefties, although Darin Ruf should be in. Take the Braves at plus money in Game 2.
