Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants Betting Preview
Ricky Gray | September 12, 2022
The Giants are hosting the game on a three-game home winning streak.
After losing their last two games, the Atlanta Braves are heading to San Francisco to face the Giants. The Braves are set to start one of the best pitchers on their roster.
The Braves come in as heavy favorites here, at -190, which is interesting because the Giants have won their last three games at home.
Spencer Strider will get the start on the mound for the Braves tonight, with a 10-4 record this season. His 2.69 ERA will definitely help the Braves get a win over the Giants.
Through 120.2 innings, Strider has thrown 183 strikeouts and has allowed just six home runs. As this game begins, keep an eye on if Strider can throw a no-hitter this evening.
At the plate, the Braves have a batting average of .253 with an on-base percentage of .318, in both categories, they rank higher than the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants have a record of 67-73 this season, ranking third in the NL West. On the mound tonight is Alex Cobb, who has an ERA of 3.68 and a 5-6 record.
At the plate, the Giants have a batting average of .232 with an on-base percentage of .315. The key for the Giants today is getting out ahead of the Braves early.
Cobb will also play a large role here as he’ll be responsible for slowing down the Braves batters. If he can’t do that, the Braves will end up running away with the game.
Although the Giants have won their last three games at home, we think the Braves will break that winning streak and get the win on the road.
Ricky’s Pick: Atlanta Braves -190, UNDER
