The Atlanta Braves will look to avoid getting swept this Sunday, as they finish off their opening series with the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
There are a lot of distractions surrounding this Atlanta Braves team regarding the All-Star Game, as the controversy does not seem to be helping this team out losing their first two games of the season.
There is no really reason to panic in Atlanta just yet, as this team is still stacked from head to toe especially in the batting department with young superstars like Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies to compliment excellent veterans like Freddie Freeman.
The Braves have also produced yet another exciting rookie in Cristian Pache who has started for the Braves already and has already had plenty of praise heaped on him coming into the year. Right handed pitcher Ian Anderson gets the start here and that should give the Braves plenty of belief, as he was very solid last year and I see not reason that good form won’t carry over into this year.
The Phillies will counter here with a potential superstar rookie of their own with third basemen Alec Bohm getting the first starts of his MLB career here in 2021 and he was even able to chip in with a run last time out in the Phillies 4-0 win over this Braves team.
Bryce Harper is the main star in the batting lineup for the Phillies and I expect him to have a huge season here, as he really did look great in that shortened 2020 season and he is a guy I really believe in long term.
Zach Eflin will get the start here and he will have a big task to live up to the starts of the first two guys who have pitched so far for the Phillies with Blake Wheeler being incredibly impressive striking out 10 last time. Eflin does have some very decent stuff though, and although I do not expect him to be able to tally 10 strikouts in this contest, I do believe he is primed for a solid start to the season.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I do like the under here, as I think both of these pitchers can have success, and plenty of trends point to the under being a good play here. It does seem like a pretty low total, but neither of the first two games both of these teams have played did not come anywhere close to that total and I do not expect that to change here with Eflin and Anderson on the mound.
