Dylan Covey gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 9 strikeouts this season. This will be Covey’s first career game against the Braves.
Atlanta Braves Betting Preview
The Atlanta Braves have scored 13 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 12 games. The Braves have won 5 of their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the Braves with 66 hits and 27 RBI, while Austin Riley and Ozzie Albies have combined for 103 hits and 58 RBI. Spencer Strider gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 2.97 ERA and 97 strikeouts this season. Strider is 4-0 with a 1.27 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 26-10 in their last 36 during game 4 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Braves are 57-26 in their last 83 home games and 110-54 in their last 164 games on grass. The over is 5-2-2 in Phillies last 9 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Braves last 5 overall. The Phillies are 5-13 in the last 18 meetings in Atlanta.
The Atlanta Braves should get the benefit of the doubt at home, especially with Spencer Strider on the mound, who is missing bats at an insane clip. Strider has 97 strikeouts in 57.2 innings, which is downright insane. However, this price is quite steep when you consider the Phillies offense has shown life lately and Dylan Covey has been respectable in 5 innings. We're getting over 2 times our money. I'll take a shot with the Phillies.
