At 35-24, Atlanta has won 14.8 units for bettors, making them the most profitable team in the league. Naturally, public perception of the Braves has changed quite a bit over the past two months. In fact, with 78% of bettors behind them tonight (10 p.m. ET at San Diego), the Braves are the most popular play on the board.
