MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves

Philadelphia (Pivetta) at Atlanta (Foltynewicz) -110 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under

If Atlanta's Mike Foltynewicz is ever going to blossom into an above average starting pitcher, this is his year to do it. The Braves have steadily built up the 26-year-old former first rounder who through three starts owns a 2.93 ERA and 18/5 K-to-BB ratio. One thing that has helped his cause is the increase usage of a changeup; a pitch that often takes time to develop for hard throwing righties. Thus far, he's used the pitch 33 times and has yet to yield a hit. Coupled with a plus fastball, Folty’s got the arsenal to now be a pitcher rather than the thrower we saw when he was initially called up. Philadelphia's Nick Pivetta is also entering his prime. Like Foltynewicz, he struggled with command (57 walks) and home runs (25 home runs) last year but has already shown improvement. Through three starts, the 25-year-old has issued only two walks and has yet to allow a home run. Pivetta's strides have been tied to his curveball which he's using more. Hitters are hitting .133 off of Pivetta's plus offering. The Braves got off to a hot start offensively but have since cooled with seven of their last eight going under the total including last night's 2-1 win over the Phillies. With two starters that are starting to show their potential, we'll look to play this game under the total of 8.5.
