Atlanta Braves (Julio Teheran) +105
San Francisco Giants (Ryan Vogelsong) -117
RHP Julio Teheran is a man that we are going to continue to fade until he loses at this point. The righty has led the Braves to wins in all five of his starts this year, but when you look at what he has accomplished, he is only 1-0 with a 5.08 ERA and a dreadful 1.66 WHIP. Teheran has allowed at least six hits in all of his starts on the season, and he pitches to a ton of contact, which isn’t going to sit well against a San Francisco team that has a huge ballpark with which to be hitting in. His foe for the night is RHP Ryan Vogelsong, who is going to have to get back into form at some point. These last few seasons, Vogelsong really has looked sharp, and he basically has resurrected his career in San Fran. However, through six starts this season, the righty is 1-2 with a 7.20 ERA, and he has allowed a total of 17 runs in his last three starts. The Braves did just take two out of three from the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ball Park, but the Giants have won seven of their last nine games and are streaking. We want the defending World Series champions on our side, especially only just barely laying any chalk whatsoever against a team and a pitcher that we think could be overrated through just a fifth of the season.
