Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates will play the 2nd game of the series at the Truist Park on Friday. The Braves took the win 3-1 on Thursday game to take the lead on the series. Fried won his sixth straight decision but struggle during 6 innings.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 31-27 record and have won 8 games in a row. The team is averaging 4.39 runs per game with a .244 at bat while allowing 4.3 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 15 home runs and 34 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .280. 

Kyle Wright leads the pitching staff with a 2.39 ERA, 73 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Spencer Strider (1-2, 2.76 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 2nd game of the series. Strider allowed 1 run on 2 hits and 5 walks striking out 5 batters in 4 innings. He didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 6-2 victory vs Rockies. He hasn't pitched against the Pirates yet.

Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pirates get to this game with a 24-31 record and have lost 3 games in a row. The team is averaging 3.55 runs and allowing 5 runs per game. Ke'Bryan Hayes is batting for .285 AVG and has 20 RBI. Bryan Reynolds leads in home runs with 8.

Jose Quintana leads the pitching staff with a 2.85 ERA, 46 strikeouts and 1 win recorded for the Pirates.

Probable Pitcher: 

Roansy Contreras (1-0, 1.93 ERA) will take the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Pirates. Contreras gave up an unearned run on 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 8 in 5.2 innings during Saturday's win over the Dbacks. He didn't factor in the decision. He hasn't pitched against the Braves.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Pittsburgh's last 9 games on the road.

Pittsburgh are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games when playing on the road against Atlanta.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Atlanta's last 15 games against Pittsburgh.

Atlanta are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Braves pulled out the win with a struggling but effective performance from Max Fried and they're now 10-1 in the last 11 games at home against the Pirates. Spencer Strider will start for the Braves and he has only 2 starts this season and has allowed 6 runs in 8.1 innings. Contreras is going for the Pirates and he has been good so far this season and with the Braves covering the spread at home only the 37% of the time I'll take the Pirates with the run line.

PICK: Pirates +1.5 (-110)
