Braves Betting Preview
Atlanta improved to 11-4 following the win over Kansas City. The Braves have controlled both contests, and they’ll look to complete their third sweep of the season Sunday. The Atlanta offense is scoring 5.48 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. Ronald Acuna Jr. has recorded multiple hits in four of the last six games, and he leads the Braves in batting average (.365). Austin Riley has a hit in nine of the last ten games, while Matt Olson leads the team in RBI (15) after producing three in the two games versus the Royals.
Max Fried (0-0, 2.70 ERA, 2 Ks) will take the bump for Atlanta. The seventh-year lefty looked good in his Opening Day start versus the Nats before leaving with injury in the third inning, and this will mark his first outing since.
Padres Betting Preview
San Diego fell to 8-9 following the loss to Milwaukee. The Padres were unable to cool the Brew Crew, and dropped three of four games to them, losing the series finale by one, 1-0. The San Diego offense is scoring 4.31 runs per game, while batting .242, with a .327 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.22 ERA, with a 1.39 WHIP. Xander Bogaerts has recorded a hit in ten straight games, and he leads the team in batting average (.361). Veteran slugger Nelson Cruz is first on the team in RBI (12), after producing three in game three of the Brewers series.
Ryan Weathers (1-0, 2.70 ERA, 5 K) will start for San Diego. The third-year pitcher held his own in Queens versus the Mets last week, going five innings, while allowing just one run, and earning his first victory of the season.
Atlanta vs San Diego Trends
Atlanta is 7-9 against the spread this season, with a 9-6-1 over/under record. San Diego is 8-9 ATS this year, with a 8-9 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
Atlanta is streaking into Southern California, and they’ve got a good chance of winning this series. San Diego just can’t seem to finish games, even with one of the more talented lineups in baseball, and if they snooze against the Braves, they will make them pay. Ryan Weathers presents vulnerable pitching, so with an advantage in momentum and on the mound I like trusting Atlanta in game one. Also, with this marking Max Fried’s return from injury, give the over a look with the firepower on both sides.
