The Atlanta Braves will visit the Chicago Cubs for a Sunday night baseball matchup to wrap up a three-game series, and the first pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET. Oddsmakers at DraftKings Sportsbook expect a close game given how recent meetings have gone between these two ball clubs. Here are some of the best betting options consider.

Braves vs. Cubs, 7:00 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Braves +123

The Braves split their first two games in their series against the Cubs and have a chance to win it at Wrigley Field. While Atlanta is starting an inexperienced 23-year-old on the mound as the away team, it has dynamic batting on its side. Chicago entered Sunday with the least hits in MLB, so I don’t expect them to replicate their 14-hit performance from Saturday. Wilson is no slouch and limited the Los Angeles Dodgers to one hit in six innings the last time he started.

Player Prop: Ronald Acuna Jr. O1.5 hits (+144)

Acuna has ascended to a new level this year and is batting a ridiculous .433. He leads MLB in hits with 26 and has notched six multi-hit games in his last nine outings. If any batter is a shoo-in for a multi-hit game at this point in the season, it’s Acuna.
