I think it is going to be a long hot summer for the Braves. With Freddie Freeman out for the next two months scoring is going to be a real struggle for a team that was going to struggle in that area regardless. Matt Kemp may be hitting .345 and enjoying a renaissance but once he starts to show some wear and they start pitching around him in earnest it is going to very difficult for this team to plate enough runs.
“Folty” is the fifth starter on a last place team so it is hard to be too harsh, or I shouldn’t be. There might have been a time when the ceiling for him looked a little higher but that has long gone. Mostly he is a placeholder until “winning” parts can be developed. That is kind of their whole rotation save Julio Teheran. He has won three of his last four starts.
The Reds have to be happy to get back home after getting swept in Toronto. Their pitchers could not keep the ball in the yard negating the power their own lineup also produced. There are some bats having great seasons for Cinciy this season and they may not be who you expect. Zach Cozart is third in MLB in hitting and Scott Schebler leads the NL in homers with 16. Joey Votto is still a beast so this lineup can rough up any pitcher.
Similar to Atlanta the Reds are not very deep in starting pitching. Bronson Arroyo is getting hammered – 12 homers allowed in his last 5 starts. The home park can be a bit of a launching pad but the fact is he doesn’t have it anymore. His guile is admirable but mostly Cincy is hoping they can stake him to big leads and work off their bullpent when he is on the mound. Tough formula.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
As much as I don’t like Arroyo I may have to recommend backing Cincinnati in this spot. He totally scares me but they could win this one 6-5 with the way their bullpen can lock things down once they get a lead. The over is likely to look good too.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cincinnati ML
The Reds are the better team even if they might not have much of an advantage on the hill for this one. I think the odds will probably be about even so I will take the home squad.
