Wade Miley is an embarrassing 1-5 with a sky high 6.43 ERA at home this season and struggled against the Braves in his only start against them last season allowing 6 earned runs over 5 inning. Both teams have been getting their share of runs of the last handful of games making the over a top play.
Take Over 8 -115.
