The Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants are set to play in this week's edition of Sunday Night Baseball.

Now, let's dive into the odds and my best bet for Sunday Night Baseball.
Braves vs. Giants odds, run line, and total
Braves vs. Giants prediction and pick
Let's keep this bet as simple as possible. This game is a matchup between the best offense in baseball since the All-Star Break, and the worst.
In that time frame, the Braves lead Major League Baseball in OPS with a mark of .871. The Giants, despite managing a respectable record since then, are dead last in OPS with a mark of .634. They're also last in batting average, batting just .217.
Sure, you could argue the Giants have the pitching advantage with Tristan Beck (3.34 ERA) going up against Jared Schuster (5.00 ERA), but the gap between the two offenses is too significant to ignore.
Let's not overthink this one. We're getting the best team in baseball at -140 to complete the sweep against an over-performing Giants team. Just take the Braves and let's move on to Monday's slate.
