Baseball Betting: MIAMI MARLINS at ATLANTA BRAVES (7/3)

BASEBALL — July 3

MIAMI (Conley) vs ATLANTA (Wisler) * Game at Fort Bragg, NC
(America’s Bookie Line: Marlins -150 / Braves +130, Total 8.5) — Unusual setting for this one, on the Fort Bragg military base. And unusual circumstances, as the Braves, who have the worst record in the National League, have actually beaten the Marlins eight of eleven times. For our purposes, though, we want to look at the totals trend, as eight of these eleven meetings have also gone “over.” Miami has also played eight consecutive games over the total, while Atlanta has played five overs in its last six games. Keep in mind that Miami starter Adam Conley has allowed 20 base runners in 9-1/3 innings in his last two road starts.

PLAY BY JAY: OVER 8.5 (-115) **
