Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Angels will play the 3rd game of the series at the Truist Park on Sunday. The Braves outscored the Angels 8-1 and took the lead on the series. Ohtani threw six dominant innings, only to surrender homers to Matt Olson and Orlando Arcia in a seven-run seventh that carried the Braves to an 8-1 victory.

They're batting for .230 AVG, 363 runs scored in 702 hits and 105 home runs, ranking #25 in offense in the league tied with the Miami Marlins. Mike Trout leads the team with a .294 avg, 24 home runs and 51 RBI. Ohtani has 19 Home runs and 56 RBI.

Defensively they are allowing 4.27 runs per game and rank #15 in the league. Shohei Ohtani leads the pitching staff with a 2.80 ERA, 134 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher: Reid Detmers (2-3, 4.11 ERA)

Detmers will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Angels. Detmers pitched six innings against the Astros and took a no-decision, giving up two runs on five hits, three walks, and a hit batter while striking out six. He hasn't pitched against the Braves in his career.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 56-38 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.74 runs per game. They're batting for .248 AVG, 446 runs scored in 796 hits and 147 home runs, ranking #4 in offense in the league behind the San Francisco Giants. Austin Riley is leading the team with 27 home runs and 61 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .294. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.98 runs per game and rank #8 in the league. Max Fried leads the pitching staff with a 2.64 ERA, 109 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded with the Braves. 

Probable Pitcher:  Ian Anderson (8-5, 4.79 ERA)

Anderson will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Braves. With 5.1 innings pitched and one run allowed on five hits and three walks, Anderson earned the victory in Friday's 8-4 victory over the Nationals. He had five strikeouts. He hasn't pitched against the Angels in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Angels' last 5 games when playing on the road against Atlanta.

LA Angels are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against an opponent in the National League.

Atlanta are 8-4 SU in their last 12 games against an opponent in the American League.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Atlanta's last 6 games against LA Angels.

Prediction

The Angels are having a nightmare of season, they're 17-27 playing on the road and are losing the 86% of the time as underdogs. They'll send Reid Detmers to the mound who has struggled this season and the Angels have lost in his last 8 starts. The defending champs are on a roll and the offense is on fire. Ian Anderson will get the ball and he has been ups and down this season so the Angels might be able to get some runs on this game so I think the best play is the over.

PICK: Over 9 (-110)
