The NL East leading Braves will travel out West to the Bay to take on the league best San Francisco Giants for a weekend series.
Atlanta had bigger expectations for this season after reaching the NLCS a season ago for the 1st time in nearly 20 years. Those dreams of a potential World Series return went out the window with a slow start the first few months of the season a season ending injury to potential MVP Ronald Acuna Jr.
Still, the Braves sit 8 games above .500 which is still good enough for the division lead in the terrible NL East division. Atlanta is 3.5 games ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Atlanta will now hit the road for a 10 game road trip after a splitting an 8 game homestand including losing the final 2 games to the Rockies.
Defending NL MVP Freddie Freeman is having another great season offensively. The slugging first baseman is hitting .297 with 30 HR’s and 78 RBIs.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants still have the best record in baseball at 95-51 after winning 6-1 on Tuesday over San Diego as the San Fran pitching rotation stifled the Padres to 1 run in back to back games.
San Francisco has had no room to take their foot off the gas as the Los Angeles Dodgers are on their heels for the NL West lead and sit only 1.5 games back in the division.
Few teams have been better to gamble on in baseball, as the Giants are 87-56 against the spread. The team has exceeded everyone’s expectations and continue to defy betting odds even into September.
To the surprise of most, the Giants have maintained an elite offense all season with an average of 4.90 runs per game while slugging an NL-high 212 home runs as a team. San Francisco’s pitching has also been excellent with a 3.27 ERA to rank 2nd in baseball behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Braves are 76-68 overall

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
In years past teams in the Giants position wouldn’t be feeling pressure with the best record in baseball this late in September. Unfortunately for San Francisco, they have the 2nd best team in baseball in their division and only 1.5 games behind.
I’m taking the Giants to win once again and try to widen the gap from the Dodgers.
