Braves Betting Preview
Atlanta improved to 10-4 after defeating KC. The Braves picked up another victory in style, and they’ll look to make it five straight here. The Atlanta offense is scoring 3.85 runs per game, while batting .272, with a .352 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.79 ERA, with a 1.33 WHIP. Austin Riley leads the Braves in batting average (.327) after recording a hit in nine of the last ten games. Matt Olson leads the team in RBI (14) after producing two in last night’s victory.
Bryce Elder (1-0, 0.00 13 Ks) will get the ball for Atlanta. The second-year pitcher has been very impressive thru two starts, tossing six shutout innings versus St. Louis and Cincinnati. Elder could wind up being this year’s version of Spencer Strider for Atlanta.
Royals Betting Preview
Kansas City moved to 4-9 after defeating Texas. The Royals blitzed the Rangers to avoid the sweep with a nine-run victory, 10-1. The Kansas City offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .205, with a .269 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.69 ERA, with a 1.36 WHIP. Salvador Perez leads the team in RBI (6), after recording one in four of the last seven games.. Vinnie Pasquantino has recorded a hit in five of the last seven games, and he leads KC in batting average (.273).
Kris Bubic (0-1, 1.64 ERA, 13 Ks) will make the start for Kansas City. The fourth-year pitcher is coming off of one of the stronger outings of his career in the Bay against the Giants, striking out nine in six shutout innings of work. Bubic also held his own in his season debut versus Toronto, so it will be interesting to see how he handles the Atlanta lineup at home.
Atlanta vs Kansas City Trends
Atlanta is 6-8 against the spread this season, with a 8-6 over/under record. Kansas City is 4-10!ATS this year, with a 8-6 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
Kansas City being overpowered here again doesn’t seem out of question. The Braves are firing at the plate right now, while the Royals are anxiously searching for consistency in their lineup. Bryce Elder has come out in shutdown form, so he should be able to hold his own versus KC here. Back the Braves here, and give the Over a look just in case Kansas City shows up today offensively.
