Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants Betting Preview

The Atlanta Braves will meet up with the San Francisco Giants on Sunday night for a series finale between two games. Atlanta has won each of the first two games in this series, and they are looking to finish off the sweep on Sunday night.

Atlanta comes into this series with an overall record of 84-44, and they just continue to win games at a ridiculous clip. The Braves have been doing everything well all season long, and that has been true in this series.

San Francisco is trying to hang on in the NL Wild Card race, but they are going to need to start winning games. The Giants have gone just 1-4 in their last five games, and they are starting to get passed up by a number of other teams in the NL.

The betting odds for this game are pretty tight, but it’s the Braves that are favored at -115 on the moneyline.

Braves Have Loaded Lineup

The Atlanta Braves are a complete team, but they are clearly better than other teams in the league when it comes to their offense. Atlanta has already belted 243 home runs this season, and they are also hitting .274 as a unit.

Matt Olson will likely be the MVP of the National League as he leads the team with 43 home runs and 112 RBIs. Ronald Acua Jr. is hitting .333 to set the tone from the leadoff spot, and they just continue to terrorize opponents.

The Braves have been dealing with injuries to the starting rotation, and that will put Jared Shuster on the mound in this game. Shuster has gone 4-2 with a 5.00 ERA this season, but the Giants will have a chance to do some scoring.

Giants Need Some Pitching

The pitching numbers for the San Francisco Giants of late have not been good, and that’s something that will need to change. San Francisco has given up 30 runs in their last five games, and that’s why they have won just one game.

It will be Tristan Beck, who is making the start in this game, and he is only expected to pitch an inning or two. This is going to be another bullpen game for the Giants, and that could cause them some issues.

Wilmer Flores is leading the team with a .299 batting average this season to go along with 19 home runs. The Giants are not a team with a ton of power, but they really need to find a way to find some big hits.

Giants Finally Get a Win

This has been a competitive series for the most part, but the Braves have always been able to pull away and get some separation. Look for this to be a tight game throughout, but this time, it will be the Giants that come up with the big hits.

Neither team will have an ace on the mound in this game, and that should lead to plenty of offense throughout the contest. Atlanta is obviously the more complete team overall, but the Giants will find a way to steal a game in this one.

Bet the San Francisco Giants at -105 as they are finally able to snap the home losing streak and pick up a win over the Atlanta Braves.
