MLB Thursday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Phillies Money Line +135 vs Atlanta Braves @ 7:15 ET - Action on pitchers. Tremendous home dog value here. The home team has won 7 of last 9 games between these divisional rivals. Line value here because the market perceives a huge pitching edge here because of Fried on the mound for Braves and Suarez getting the call for the Phillies. Note that Fried actually has allowed multiple homers in each of his last two starts and one of those was against the Phillies and that was in Atlanta. The last time he faced them in Philly he gave up 9 hits in 6 innings. Philadelphia is riding the momentum of last night's dramatic 4-3 comeback win in extra innings and is going to be tough to beat here. Keep in mind this series is the Phillies final home series of the season! They have this one circled as being of key importance in their quest for securing a wild card spot because it is a long road trip after this to close out the season. That said, I like this play regardless of pitchers and I like the home dog value here as I look for the home team to improve to 8-2 last 10 between these rivals. As for Suarez, he just faced the Braves in Atlanta and was very strong against them. He has allowed just 1 earned run in last 11 innings versus the Braves. More of the same expected here. 10* PHILADELPHIA +135
