The Atlanta Braves and Cincinnati Reds will start a four-game series at 7:10 p.m. ET. Jesse Chavez will be on the mound for the Braves, while the Reds will start Tony Santillan. We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.

Braves vs. Reds, 7:10 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Reds -127

The Reds are the favorites in tonight’s game with -127 odds against the Braves. Atlanta will be starting relief pitcher Jesse Chavez, which signifies that this will be a bullpen game for them. Cincinnati should be able to take advantage of this, since they have one of the best home offenses in the majors (6.03 runs per game). However, they will need a solid outing from the rookie Santillan.

Santillan struggled in his last start against the San Diego Padres, allowing 4 hits (2 HRs), 3 earned runs, 1 walk, and produced 3 strikeouts in 3.0 IP. Depending on how far the rookie can go in tonight’s game, will likely determine if it will be a bullpen game for the Reds. The Braves are coming off of a four-game split against the Mets and are 4-6 in their last 10 road games. I think the Reds get the job done as they look to continue their momentum off of a 10-7 win on Tuesday over the Twins.
