June 12, 2024

Atlanta Braves Team Preview


The Atlanta Braves were shut out in Game 1 of the series on the road against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday evening. They have struggled this month as they have compiled a record of 3-6 and are on a four-game winning streak following the 0-4 loss in Game 1.


However, despite Atlanta's struggles in June, the Braves are one of the top teams in the National League. They are six games above .500 with a record of 35-29, which puts them in second place in the NL East, 10 games behind the Philadelphia Phillies, and gives them the fourth-best record in the National League, behind the Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Milwaukee Brewers.


Atlanta has won two of the previous three games against Baltimore. However, the Orioles have outscored the Braves by an average of 2.67 to 3.33 runs per game in those contests. The Atlanta Braves will look to end their four-game losing streak when they travel to face the Baltimore Orioles for Game 2 of the series.


Baltimore Orioles Team Preview


The Baltimore Orioles have the second-best record in the American League and the third-best record in baseball, with a record of 44-22; however, they also play in the same division as the New York Yankees, who have the second-best record in baseball and the best record in the American League.


The Orioles are also one of the hottest teams in baseball as they enter Game 2 against the Braves on a five-game winning streak following a 4-0 win against the Atlanta Braves and have won by an average margin of 4.4 runs per game. The win in Game 1 also ended the two-game losing streak in the series for Baltimore against Atlanta.


However, the Orioles have outscored the Braves by an average of 4.4 to 3 runs per game over the last ten and 3.33 to 2.67 runs per game in the previous three games. The Baltimore Orioles will look to extend their winning streak to six games when they host the Atlanta Braves for Game 2 of the series on Wednesday evening.


Odds and Series Trends


JustBet has the Baltimore Orioles listed as -120 moneyline favorites at home against the Atlanta Braves for Game 1 of the series on Wednesday evening. Atlanta has won six of the last ten and two of the previous three meetings against Baltimore.


However, the Orioles have outscored the Braves by an average of 4.4 to 3 runs per game over the last ten and 3.33 to 2.67 runs per game over the previous three games in the series. 


Game Pick


Even though Game 1 of the series was low scoring, both teams are among the highest-scoring teams in baseball this season, with the Braves averaging 4.43 runs per game and the Orioles averaging 5.17 runs per game.


The starting pitchers in Game 2 lack experience in the MLB. Spencer Schwellenbach will be making his third start of his career and enters the game with a record of 0-2 and an ERA of 8.38, while Cade Povich will be making his second start and allowed six runs in his major league debut last week against the Blue Jays on the road.


I look for the veteran hitters to take advantage of the young pitchers, so I am taking the over 9 runs for Game 2 of the series.
