Atlanta Braves vs. Baltimore Orioles Betting Odds


Atlanta Braves Analysis

The Braves this season are batting at a paltry .245 on average and while their OBP is reasonable at .327, their slugging is at .402 which shows their inability to drive runs home and they have scored a mere 274 runs. Their ability to score runs is not the highest but still has 64 home runs meaning that they partly have power hitters but most of the time they need to have good singles.

On the defenders’ front, the Braves have been rather decent with a team 3.6 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. These figures present a team with a rather strong pitching rate but also reveal some weaknesses, most notably in the games played on the road where the team’s performance suffers. This element may be crucial in the next game given the particulars that the team has a worse record when playing on the road.

The highlight is on Reynaldo Lopez who deem himself worthy of a starting pitcher with (1. 85)ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. His performance at the plate this season restricts the opposing team’s average to 241 below the bar across more than 63 innings, and thus, may stand in the way of the Orioles’ batters in this game.

Baltimore Orioles Analysis

Batting average is posted at .247 of the Orioles, which is slightly higher than that of the Braves; slugging percentage stands at a remarkable .448, home runs recorded are 100—and consequently, 100 home runs equaled 322 runs. This shows they possess a strong and dangerous hitting offense that can alter a game by use of the long ball, useful for the team in their domain.

On the defensive playing field, the Orioles have slightly better statistics in terms of 3.21 ERA and 1.13 WHIP than the Braves, proving that the players indeed have a formidable pitching lineup that enabled opponents’ hitters to get only a .219 average. This strength could be useful in checking the Braves’ batting line at some point or the other.

Kyle Bradish takes the ball with a decent season on the go, providing a 2.62 ERA and fanning 49 in 34 innings. His season has been almost pitch perfect that has yet to yield any home runs and this will be a tall order against the Braves who though not among the powerhouse teams, do possess the firepower to hit some homers.

Atlanta Braves vs. Baltimore Orioles Against the Spread

The Braves have struggled lately, with a 1-4 record in their last five games and similarly poor performance against the spread. Their road record against the spread stands at a concerning 15-17, indicating potential challenges in their upcoming away game.

Conversely, the Orioles have excelled both in recent games and against the spread, going 4-1 in their last five matchups. Their strong home and road game performances suggest a robust team that’s difficult to beat under current form, providing them with a slight edge in this upcoming contest.
