Philadelphia at Atlanta Braves -125 (8 ½ over): This should be a good match-up as the Phillies are coming off a road sweep of the Cubs, and the Braves has won seven of their last eight games. Moreover, Atlanta has won seven of nine meetings with the Phillies, including 3-0 at home. Both starting pitchers, Jurrjens for Atlanta and Blanton for the Phillies, have been roughed up in recent outings, so looking at the OVER in this contest might be the first option, with the home team getting the nod. Atlanta -125, OVER 8½
