The top two teams in the NL East will take the diamond for a critical series in the final week of the regular season down in Georgia. The Philadelphia Phillies on the road as they kick off a three-game series with the Atlanta Braves starting on Tuesday night.
Philadelphia had their five-game win streak snapped as they were blanked in the finale of a four-game set with the Pirates at home Sunday afternoon. The Phillies entered Monday second in the NL East, 2.5 games behind the Braves for the division lead.
In the NL wild card race, the team is six games behind the Cardinals with six games to play. With that large of a deficit their best best is winning the division which would likely require a sweep.
The pitching for this squad has been up and down. Overall, they have an ERA of 4.40, which is the 20th best in the Majors.
Philadelphia has hit 192 home runs, which is the 14th best in the sport.
Atlanta swept a three-game set on the road against the Padres, knocking San Diego out of playoff contention in the process with Sunday’s victory. The Braves entered Monday holding a 2.5-game lead on the Phillies in the NL East with a magic number of five to clinch the division title.
The pitching for this team has gotten much better as the year has gone on. They hold an ERA of 3.95, which is the 12th best in baseball.
Even without Ronald Acuna Jr., this offense is a very powerful and dangerous one. They are scoring 4.92 runs per game, which is the 7th best in the sport.
Atlanta has hit 232 home runs, which is 3rd best in the league.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Phillies are 81-75 overall
- Phillies are 34-41 on the road
- Braves are 83-72 overall
- Braves are 37-37 at home
Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
This is a pivotal game for the Phillies’ playoff chances as a win would put them within 1.5 games of the Braves while a loss would drop them 3.5 games back with 5 games to go.
The Phillies are a desperate team and they look to stay in the playoff picture. Philadelphia was rolling before getting knocked off Sunday and Aaron Nola is a strong arm in the rotation to keep that momentum going.
I expect Philly to grab a crucial win on Wednesday and close the gap in the division.
