Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Analysis

The Philadelphia Phillies host the Atlanta Braves in the second contest of a three-game set at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.

Atlanta remains four games behind the New York Mets and is in second place in the National League East with a 43-32 record, despite going 19-15 away from Truist Park. The Phillies enter Wednesday in third place in the National League East standings with a record of 39-36 overall and 19-18 at home, which positions them eight games back in the division.

Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Prediction

The Atlanta Braves enter this matchup second in the NL East standings, four games behind the New York Mets for first place. The Braves went 1-2 SU in their most recent series against the Dodgers but managed to turn things around and win game-one of this series 5-3. Following Tuesday’s win, Atlanta has won six of their last 10 games. The offense had a productive day against the Phillies with eight hits and five runs. The bullpen also played well, holding Philadelphia to eight hits and three runs. This is right on par with their season average of 4.72 runs per game (7th) and team ERA of 3.72 (9th). The shortstop Dansby Swanson has been a key part of the Braves success with a batting average of .304 (84-276), 13 home runs, and 43 RBIs.  

Philadelphia is currently third in the NL East standings, eight games behind the New York Mets for first place. The Phillies most recently went 3-1 SU in a four-game series with the Padres and are 5-5 SU over their last 10 games. Philadelphia struggled to capitalize in game one of this series, going 1-10 with runners in scoring position. The bullpen was not terrible but did allow five runs on eight hits. This is below their season averages of 4.73 runs per game (6th) and team ERA of 3.89 (14th). Bad news for Phillies fans, designated hitter Bryce Harper is still on the injured list after breaking his left thumb this past Saturday. Harper has been great this season with a batting average of .318 (77-242), 15 home runs, and 48 RBIs.  

The Braves have won three of five games against the Phillies this season. I like that trend to continue and for Braves to take game-two of this matchup. The Braves have been hot over the past month, winning 20 of their last 25 games. Also, starting pitcher Kyle Wright was solid in his outing against the Phillies earlier in the season, giving up three hits and three runs while striking out five batters in 6.2 innings. Backing the Braves moneyline here.
