Marlins OutfieldAtlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins Wednesday Free MLB Pick: The Atlanta Braves and the returning to form Miami Marlins are going to kick off Wednesday’s slate of MLB betting action on the MLB Network, and here at TCSP, we’re going to be making our MLB free picks for what looks to be one of the more enticing games on the schedule.

Braves vs. Marlins Game Time: 12:40 p.m. ET
Braves vs. Marlins Live TV Coverage: MLB Network
MLB Odds: Braves -125 / Marlins +115 (Total: 7.5)

The Braves have done what they were supposed to do in the first two games of this series, beating the Marlins by multiple runs on each occasion. We’re a bit surprised that they are only going to be asked to lay -125 in this one, knowing that they really are the superior team by a comfortable margin. Perhaps bettors are a bit afraid that Miami won the last two games at +200 and greater underdogs on the MLB odds when these two met over the Fourth of July just last week. However, we think that is a great overreaction for no reason. The Fish have been fileted in five straight games averaging just 2.4 runs per game in that stretch, and four of the five have been lost by more than one run. Sure, Jacob Turner has pitched well for Miami thus far through seven starts, but we just don’t buy it in the long run. There’s a reason that Turner was traded away from Detroit, and there’s a reason that he didn’t make his big league debut this season until May 31st. The Marlins are a wreck, and Paul Maholm will take advantage of that in a big time way on Wednesday. It seems square, but Atlanta is definitely the better play on the run-line, especially with such little risk on getaway day.

Braves vs. Marlins Free Pick for July 10th: Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+148)
