Detroit Tigers vs Atlanta Braves Prediction 

Detroit comes into this game after two very good pitching performances to start the series, but their offense has been awful and they are trying to avoid the sweep here. Atlanta has won five of their last six games and while their offense hasn’t been great, the pitching has been. The Braves are starting Lopez, who has been one of the best in the MLB this year. Detroit is going with Skubal, who has also been very good. I think we are going to see a great pitching performance from each side here and my Detroit Tigers vs Atlanta Braves prediction is for this game to go under the total.
