Braves Betting Preview

Atlanta improved to 13-4 following the win over San Diego. The Braves have won eight straight, and they’ll look to complete their third straight sweep of the season Wednesday. 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 (.368). Austin Riley has a hit in nine of the last ten games, while Matt Olson leads the team in RBI (20) after producing three in the game two win over SD. 

Charlie Morton (2-1, 3.86 ERA, 12 Ks) will take the ball for Atlanta. The veteran pitcher put together his best start of the season versus Kansas City last week, going six full innings, while allowing just two runs and earning the victory.

Padres Betting Preview

San Diego fell to 8-11 following the loss to Atlanta. The Padres scored their first run in three games, and they’ll look to find some life here. 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 (.347). Veteran slugger Nelson Cruz is first on the team in RBI (12), after producing three in game three of the Brewers series.

Nick Martinez (0-1, 5.60 ERA, 11 K) is set to start for San Diego. The six-year pitcher put together his second quality start of the season versus Milwaukee last week, going six innings and allowing three runs despite not earning the decision. Martinez had a tough time with Atlanta in their first series, and he’ll look to respond at Petco here.

Atlanta vs San Diego Trends

Atlanta is 9-9 against the spread this season, with a 10-7-1 over/under record. San Diego is 8-11 ATS this year, with a 9-10 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Atlanta put it on San Diego late in last night's contest, and I think that momentum rolls into Wednesday’s game. The Braves will again hold the advantage on the hill with Charlie Morton set to go, and after having success versus Nick Martinez last week, they may just have their way again here. The Padres have dropped six of their last seven, so this feels like a spot to roll with the more consistent squad. Back the Braves to bring the brooms out here.
