Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Analysis

Atlanta and Philadelphia meet up for the first of a three-game series on Monday, July 25, 2022 at Citizens Bank Park.

The Braves are placed second in the National League East with a record of 58-39 overall and 25-18 on the road, which trails the division leading New York Mets by 1.5 games. The Phillies enter Monday in third place in the National League East standings with a record of 49-46 overall and 24-24 at home, which positions them 9.5 games back in the division.

Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Prediction

The Braves LHP Max Fried to the hill against Philadelphia’s eighth-ranked scoring offense on Monday night (4.61 RSPG), who’s having the best campaign of his career sitting 10-3 with a 2.64 ERA across 19 starts (1.06 WHIP), which already includes a decent outing against the Phillies (6 IP, 2 ER).

On the flip side, the Phillies send LHP Ranger Suarez to the mound against Atlanta’s fourth-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.76 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down for Philly all season, considering he’s 7-5 with a 4.07 ERA across 16 appearances (1.42 WHIP), which already includes a pair of miserable outings against the Braves (11 IP, 9 ER).

I’ll back the Braves to cover here, as Suarez has been far too difficult to trust for Philly recently, considering he’s 4-4 with a 4.28 ERA across his last ten starts, which includes an 0-2 record and 7.36 across two appearances against Atlanta (1.64 WHIP); setting the stage for a lopsided matchup against the Braves and Fried, who’s tossed five innings or more and allowed two runs or less in seven of his last ten outings (6-1, 2.10 ERA).

Score Prediction: Braves 7, Phillies 3
Best Bet: Braves -1.5 (-110)
