Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants

July 4, 2024

Atlanta Braves Betting Preview


The Braves might have one of the deeper rosters in the National League, but they have always seemed to get hit with the injury bug, and this season is no different. Losing a couple of key players has hurt their ability to manufacture runs and win close games. 


On offense, they are led by veteran first baseman Matt Olson, who has cracked 12 home runs while driving 41 runs this season. The Braves are within shouting distance regarding the wild card spot in the National League. They are trying to catch the Philadelphia Phillies, who want to run away with the NL East. 


The Braves might be a team that pulls the trigger come the trade deadline and looks for them to make a run in the second half. But they need to start winning some games and going on a run here. They will hand the ball over to veteran hurler Charlie Morton, who carries a mark of 5-4, and the Braves will turn to him to stop the bleeding. 


San Francisco Giants Betting Preview


The Giants are fighting their way back to .500 on the season. They have a tough-minded approach and play very hard. They have lost some very tough games, but they have also shown they can win some close games. 


On offense, they are led by third baseman Matt Chapman, who has hit 11 home runs, driven in 39 runs, and blasted .238. The Giants have some solid sluggers, but they can not rely on the long ball, as they have to figure out a way to play small ball. They need to manufacture runs, and they also need to get some help from their starting staff. 


They will send out Logan Webb, who has a record of 6-6 and has shown he can log some innings for the Giants. The Giants' team ERA is 4.48. They must improve on that if they have a shot at getting back into the mix in the NL West. 


The Giants have enough talent to make a run in the second half of the season, but they need more to catch the Los Angeles Dodgers.
