Atlanta Braves -160
(MLB) Atlanta vs. Cincinnati, 07/02/2022 4:10 PM, Score: 4 - 1
Money Line: -160.00 Atlanta (Away)
Result: Win
I will be riding with the Braves on the road in this matchup. Atlanta has been one the hottest teams over the past few weeks and I don’t see them falling to the struggling Cincinnati Reds. The Braves are scoring the ninth most runs per game and they have the 11th highest overall team batting average. They will consistently reach base against Tyler Mahle, as he has struggled all season. He is currently (3-6) with a 4.53 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP rating. He was also shelled by the Dodgers just a few starts back. The Braves will do the same and the Reds will be forced to turn to their bullpen earlier than they would like. The Reds bullpen is also allowing the most runs per game, as they have been weak this season. The Braves will consistently score throughout this game and it won’t stay close. Back the Atlanta Braves and trust Spencer Strider on the mound. He pitched for 6.0 innings against the Dodgers in his last start and didn’t allow any earned runs. He has it rolling right now and he will dominate this Reds team at the plate.
