I am going with the Braves here. Even though they just got smacked last night by this cards team I like the pitching match up they get here. Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. is 6-for-21 with two homers during his current five-game hitting streak, and in 151 career games has 34 homers, 87 RBIs and a .901 OPS. Shortstop Dansby Swanson has reached base in 15 consecutive games, hitting .298 with four RBIs, three doubles and a .761 OPS in that span. The Cardinals are 1-4 in their last five games against starters with WHIPs under 1.15, 1-6 in their last seven road games against teams with winning home records, and 2-5 in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Atlanta is 5-2 in its last seven against the National League Central and 6-2 in Sorokas last eight starts. All the signs point to the Braves in this one, so dont over think it and take Atlanta
Soroka has been crusing this season and I'm really impressed with hows he's been pitching. Wacha is 3-0 but don't let his record fool you, he hasn't been that great the last couple of years and has reverse splits meaning he's doing worse against right handed batters than he is to left. One of the biggest issues Wacha has is his 11% walk rate and that will not go over well with this braves lineup that has 6 guys in the projected lineup that are considered above league average in taking walks. this is not a team you want to give free passes too because they have plenty of power that can clear the bases and I really like the braves today. The line opened at -125 and is currently -140 at most books and there is a good reason for it. I'm all over this game today!
The Cardinals have had some success with Wacha on the mound this season, but he's walked 22 batters in 37 innings and has given up eight runs in his last 10.2 innings. Soroka has been rock solid for the Braves through 29.2 innings, giving up just 20 hits and four earned runs and a .183 allowed batting average. All things considered, the Braves have a significant edge on the mound today and should be able to get to Wacha. t.
Covers community free betting prediction for Atlanta Braves (59% consensus). The St. Louis Cardinals struggled offensively while losing nine of 11 games, but hope to carry a breakout performance into Wednesdays middle contest of a three-game series at the Atlanta Braves. St. Louis emphatically snapped out of its offensive doldrums in a 14-3 series-opening drubbing of the Braves on Tuesday, scoring 11 runs in the first five innings as three Cardinals slugged homers and outfielder Marcell Ozuna set the tone with a three-run, first-inning blast... http://bit.ly/2GoC6fD
