Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants Picks & Betting Tips 


Atlanta (76-68) sits atop of the NL East ahead of Philadelphia (3.0 games) and the New York Mets (5.5).  

The Braves have lost two straight and is 5-5 in their last 10 games. Atlanta is 39-32 on the road and 53-52 vs. RHPs.

Anderson has been a little bit wild and has been uncharacteristically prone to give up the long ball since returning from the injured list. The 23-year-old is 2-0 over his last three starts while permitting 14 hits – 3 home runs – along with 6 runs while walking 8 and striking out 9 in 13.2 innings of work.

San Francisco (95-52) has the best record in the majors, although the Giants hold just a one-game advantage over the Dodgers in the NL West.

The Giants have their last two games and are 8-2 over the last 10.  San Francisco is 47-25 at home and 69-33 against RHPs.

Webb has been battered around the last two games, both road contests, allowing 15 hits and 8 runs over 13 innings. Still, he has a 3.80 ERA and a 7-to-1 K/BB ratio over 20.0 innings in three starts this month.

Head To Head


Atlanta leads the season-series 2-1, outscoring the Giants 15-10.  The teams last played August 29.

Atlanta Braves Form 


Atlanta had its series finale against Colorado postponed on Thursday. The Braves dropped the first two games against the Rockies, losing by one run in each contest. 

The Braves are 6-7 in September, outscoring their opponents 65 -55.

Atlanta’s offense has compiled 5.0 runs over the last 13 contests with a slash line of .242/.308/.471.

Atlanta’s pitching staff is 6-7 during this 13-game stretch with a 4.11 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and .214 OBA.

San Francisco Giants Form


San Francisco split its four-game home series with San Diego. The Giants fell to 7-4 to the Padres on Thursday night for their second straight loss. San Francisco outscored San Diego 25-18 in the series.

The Giants are 11-4 in September, outscoring their opponents 98-58.

San Francisco’s offense has produced 6.1 runs over the last 14 games with a slash line of .291/.380/.530.

The Giants’ pitching staff has compiled a 11-3 record during this 14-game stretch with a 3.16 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and .241 OBA.  

Verdict

This is an important game and series for two of the NL’s division leaders. This game has the makings of a fantastic pitching duel. Anderson held the Giants to four hits in 5.2 shutout innings on Sept. 29 while Webb gave up five hits in 7 shutout innings the day before.

Anderson has been a little wild and prone to giving up the long ball over his last seven starts, surrendering seven homers and walking 17. He has struggled in each of his last three outings and has produced a road ERA (3.64) as opponents are hitting .249 away from home, which .034 points higher than his opponents average at Truist Field. The 23-year-old gets to face one of the best offensive teams in the majors that is currently raking it at the plate and hits better at home.
 
Webb has been spectacular at home this year, recording a 5-0 record with a 1.65 ERA and.206 OBA, and has completely shutdown the Braves in his two career games against them.
