The Braves and Red Sox meet on Tuesday meet on Tuesday for the start of a brief two-game clash.
The Braves have limped off to a slow start in a season in which many thought they were the favorites to win the NL East. Atlanta has been on the right track of late, however, as they look to win their fourth straight contest Tuesday.
The Braves have one of the best young and budding stars in baseball in Ronald Acuna Jr., and he is putting on a show in 2021. He has arguably been the best player in baseball this season and is tied for the league lead with 15 home runs.
The Braves have been more than a one-man show though, as they league the MLB with 78 home runs as a team. If the Braves could improve their averages a bit and get more baserunners for those home runs, particularly Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman, they will continue their winning streak.
Charlie Morton starts for the Braves on Tuesday. So far this year the veteran starter is 2-2 with a 4.60 ERA in nine starts.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox have an abundance of depth in their lineup and have been one of the best offensive teams in the league. The Red Sox are second in the MLB in runs scored and batting average.
Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez are leading the top two on the Red Sox in home runs and RBIs. The resurgence of Martinez has played a huge role in the improvement of the Red Sox. The duo has combined for 25 home runs, with Devers leading with 13.
Average wise, the Red Sox have several hitters above the .300 mark. Xander Bogaerts paces the Sox with a .345 average, with Martinez at .328 and Alex Verdugo near .300 as well. The Red Sox are only getting better as the season progresses and are hitting .300 over the last week.
Garrett Richards, who is 4-2 with a 3.72 ERA this season, is on the bump for the Red Sox. Richards has won four of his last five starts and is starting to settle in. He allowed just two runs in his last outing against the Blue Jays, going six innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Red Sox are 5-1 in their last 6 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game.
Red Sox are 5-1 in their last 6 games following an off day.
Red Sox are 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games as an underdog.

Red Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 games as a home underdog.
Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game.
Free Atlanta Braves vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
I like the Red Sox to prevail in this matchup. Charlie Morton has not looked like himself this season and has struggled against better hitting teams. Garrett Richards has been throwing well of late, and while the Braves have the most home runs in the league, I feel the Red Sox still have the more balanced lineup.
