Preview

The Atlanta Braves will visit the Arizona Diamondbacks to play a 3-game series at the Chase Field. The Braves won their last series against the Marlins while the Dbacks were swept by the Dodgers.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 23-25 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.10 runs per game with a .228 at bat while allowing 4.35 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 11 home runs and 23 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .268. 

MAx Fried leads the pitching staff with a 3.10 ERA, 57 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Spencer Stride (1-1, 2.22 ERA) will be on the mound for the Atlanta in the 1st game of the series. The rookie right-hander has been a standout in the Atlanta bullpen this season with a 2.22 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 37:11 K:BB across 24.1 innings

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get to this game with a 23-26 record and have lost 4 straight games. The team is averaging 3.8 runs per game and allowing 4.5 runs. Christian Walker leads with 12 home runs and 22 RBI and Daulton Varsho is batting for .264 AVG.

Merrill Kelly leads the team with a 3.67 ERA, 47 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Dbacks. 

Probable Pitcher:

Zac Gallen (3-0, 2.22 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 1st game of the series. Gallen didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 8-6 win against Kansas City, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings. In his last start against the Braves he threw 7 scoreless innings and struck out 7 batters.

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against Arizona.

Atlanta are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Arizona.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Arizona's last 5 games against Atlanta.

Arizona are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Braves offense is still hot and they scored 13 runs on their last series and they've won 6 of their last 7 games against the Dbacks but they'll face Zac Gallen who held them to zero runs across 7 innings. Gallen is coming from a bad start against the Royals but he should get back on track at home. The Dbacks have won in 6 of Gallen's 8 starts this season so I think they can win this one.

PICK: Diamondbacks ML (-102)
