Really like the Braves who have been crushing the ball out of the park against a guy who has allowed 7 HR's in his last 3 starts on an evening when the wind is going to be blowing 15 mph out. I'll take the over as the Cubs rise to the challenge and make it interesting but not the pitching matchup most will consider not looking at the numbers and the weather.

Jon Lester has allowed 7 home runs in his last 3 starts spanning 16.2 innings of work. That's a nasty piece of timing for him to be pitching at Wrigley Field tonight on an evening with a massive 15 MPH wind blowing straight out to right-center field. A potentially lethal combo.— Ian Cameron (@bobano) June 24, 2019

Wind is so strong at Wrigley it would not shock me if Jon Lester took Julio Teheran deep tonight.— Allan Lem (@AllanLemDFS) June 24, 2019

ATL +118 (4 UNIT PLAY) - Teheran posted a 0.81 ERA over an eight-start stretch before allowing a season-high eight hits, including his first homer since April 30, over four innings against the Mets last week. Lester is going for the Cubs today and he has given up 13 runs in his last 16 innings of work and the veteran lefty has a 7.17 ERA in his last seven outings. Atlanta has the better offense and I trust Teheran here more than Lester, Vegas has got the wrong team favored here today in my opinion.

Chicago Cubs (54% consensus). It hasnt been smooth at times, but the Atlanta Braves' bullpen continues pitching just well enough to help the team extend its National League East lead entering the opener of a four-game series Monday at the Chicago Cubs. The Braves pushed their division lead over Philadelphia to 6 1/2 games with Sundays 4-3, 10-inning victory at Washington - in which Atlantas bullpen covered eight innings as Josh Tomlin pitched four scoreless frames and Luke Jackson earned the save... http://bit.ly/2GfVZFy

Chicago Sun-Times: Hotlanta: Cubs beat Braves 8-3 after Willson Contreras, Tyler Flowers face off, benches empty
Maybe all the Cubs needed was the hottest team in the National League to get to town.
And some hot tempers.
It didn't take long Monday night in the opener of a four-game series for the first sparks to ignite just enough to clear the benches in the second inning of the Cubs' 8-3 victory over the National League East-leading Braves at Wrigley Field.
One inning after Cubs star Kris Bryant was hit on the shoulder by a pitch near his head, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras seemed to take issue with Braves catcher Tyler Flowers' contribution to a conversation Contreras was having with home-plate ump John Tumpane as he batted in the second inning.
Talking Chop: Teheran shelled as Braves fall to Cubs, 8-3
Julio Teheran walked the tightrope for his first four innings, then the wheels came off in a five-run fifth inning that was ultimately his undoing. All told, he allowed seven runs with nine hits, three walks, and two strikeouts. Not exactly the bounceback start he was looking for after last week's dud against the Mets. He struggled with his command all night, and worked around baserunners in four of the five innings in which he pitched.
Tempers were on display during the second inning. After Willson Contreras hit an opposite field home run, he started chirping at Tyler Flowers, then shouted and gestured into the Braves' dugout as he rounded the first base bag.
