The model, which ran 10,000 simulations on each of Tuesday's games, likes the New York Mets (+140) to knock off Atlanta. The Mets (75-41) have been one of the hottest teams in the majors since the All-Star break, going 17-4 in their last 21 games. They've gone 4-2 against the Braves over that stretch.

In addition, New York faces an Atlanta starter, Charlie Morton, who is coming off one of his worst starts this season. On Aug. 9, Morton gave up five runs on six hits, including three home runs, in six innings against Boston. He had given up five runs and three homers only one other time this season, in a 7-3 loss to the Mets on July 13. See who else to back right here.
