The San Francisco Giants are poised to return to the World Series, while the Atlanta Braves are ready for this season to be finished.
Atlanta has been abysmal against every team that isn’t is the Miami Marlins, whereas the Giants are playing their best baseball of the season.
San Francisco Giants
After sluggishly playing through the first five weeks, the Giants look to be in prime form as the dog days of summer approach us.
The Giants spent a lot of money in the offseason to bolster their starting rotation, and Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto have been every bit as advertised for the first-place Giants.
Samardzija will toe the rubber in this one, and it’s not unfair to claim that he’s been San Francisco’s best pitcher this season. Samardzija is 7-2 with a 2.54 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.
He also owns a K/BB ratio of nearly 4/1 and has won six of his last seven starts. Only once this year has Samardzija allowed more than three runs in a start, so the Braves will need to be at the top of their game in order to rattle the talented right-hander.
The Braves have owned the Miami Marlins this year, but have been terrible against everybody else. Nearly half of Atlanta’s wins have come against Miami, so don’t be fooled by the Braves’ recent offensive surge.
The Braves are 29th in runs and 30th in slugging percentage, OPS and home runs. They’ve already fired manager Fredi Gonzalez, so the rest of the season will undoubtedly be a wash.
Mike Foltynewicz is expected to start for Atlanta, and he’s been surprisingly efficient at home. In four home starts this year, Foltynewicz has allowed just eight earned runs and owns a WHIP of 1.03.
The question is, can the Braves give him some run support?
Atlanta is averaging just 2.6 runs per game when Foltynewicz takes the mound, a stat that isn’t going to do much to improve his record.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Giants are 15-9 on the road.
- Giants are 8-2 in their last 10 games.
- Giants are 7-3 when Samardzija starts.
- Braves are 4-20 at home.
- Braves are 4-10 in day games.
Free San Francisco Giants vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Braves, for some reason, have the Miami Marlins’ number.
Nearly half of their wins have come against the Fish, but the Giants are not the Fish. San Francisco has been dominant over the last two weeks and if the pitching staff continues to pitch like it does, the Giants could very well find themselves back in the World Series.
The Braves are a dumpster fire, so don’t expect much from them this game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco RL
The Giants have asserted themselves as the team to beat in the NL West, and the Braves are still holding it down in the NL East cellar.
Samardzija has been phenomenal over the last month, and he’ll continue that against the worst team in the National League.
