Foltynewicz was clobbered by the San Francisco Giants in his previous start as he took the loss. He went five innings giving up six earned off of nine hits while striking out four and walking two. Foltynewicz has only given up two or fewer in his previous six starts before that outing.
The 26 year old has been pitching some good baseball as he is posting a 10.46 K/9, 4.14 BB/9, 0.97 HR/9, while his still low 3.65 ERA and 3.70 FIP took a blow from his last start. With a solid .305 BABIP and a similar ERA and FIP, I expect Foltynewicz to keep playing at a high-level of baseball until later on in the season when his innings count increases.
Atlanta has played mediocre baseball in the last week winning three of their six contests. In that span their lineup is slashing .257/.307/.452 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.
Smith was able to pick up his second win of the season against the Cincinnati Reds in dominating fashion. He went 5.2 innings giving up three hits and zero earned runs while striking out seven and walking one.
The lefty has been a spectacular addition for a young Miami squad. In 34 innings of work, Smith owns a 12.58 K/9, a tad high 4.46 BB/9 and a respectable 1.05 HR/9 to go with a superb 3.67 ERA and a dominant 3.36 FIP. Once his lucky .260 BABIP regresses his low ERA should take a hit, but I don’t think it will be anything too significant.
Miami has been playing some sub-par baseball in the last week winning just two of their four contests. In that span their lineup is only slashing .208/.271/.307 to go with 11 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Braves -120 & First 5 innings Under
Smith has been pitching well, but is about to face an Atlanta lineup that is slashing .283/.341/.467 against lefties. Although I expect Smith to hold his own, I don’t think it will be enough to outduel Foltynewicz who will want a bounce-back performance after his last outing dud. I’ll be backing the team with the hotter lineup.
