The Atlanta Braves Achilles heel this year has been their pitching, and although a series with the Yankees usually won’t stop the bleeding when it comes to your pitching performances, they just may be getting the Bronx Bombers at the right time, as they have started off ice cold with the bats here in 2021.
The Braves youngster Ronald Acuna Jr. has started off the season with a bang, and that really is putting it mildly when you consider he comes into this contest with a .419 average and 7 home runs with 16 RBI.
The Braves did get a scare with Acuna in their last game though, as Acuna was forced to leave that game with injury in just the 4th inning, but luckily for Acuna and the Braves it looks like the injury was not serious and he should be able to return shortly with him being listed as day to day at the moment.
He makes a big difference in terms of the Braves odds of winning this game, so keep an eye out for any news pertaining to his possibly involvement in this game, as it would not surprise me to see the Braves become favorites in this spot based on Acuna’s availability.
New York Yankees
The Yankees come into this game off the back of a 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays which was their 5th loss in a row which has this team in last place in the AL East which is not a position most Yankees teams are used to being in.
The batting really has been awful with this team hitting only .210 and batting in just 55 total runs on the season and everyone expected better with the guys they have on paper being excellent.
You do have to imagine they turn this around at some point though, with guys like Aaron Judge flashing his ability early on here registering 4 home runs and guys like Giancarlo Stanton you just can’t hold down forever.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I was very high on this New York Yankees team coming into the season and I am not at all ready to abandon ship on this highly talented team just yet, as I can see them being a solid value here as a slight favorite here at Yankee Stadium.
I also do not see the Braves risking Acuna in this game and think they will save him for when he is back to 100% and I feel like a ton of the Braves wins thus far can be attributed to him solely and I am not convinced about this batting lineup without him in there.
