Atlanta vs San Diego: Braves Host Padres on MLB Get Away Thursday

Atlanta vs San Diego: Braves Host Padres on MLB Get Away Thursday

Atlanta Braves: Hanging around in NL East race

Thanks largely to the Nationals and Mets floundering, Atlanta is in a three horse race in the National League East Division fight for first. The Braves (29-30) are just two games out of first as they look to take three of four contests versus the visiting Padres. After dropping the series opener 5-3 in eleven innings on Monday, Atlanta has posted 6-5 and 4-1 victories. RHP Julio Teheran (4-2 ERA 4.87) heads to the hill for Atlanta looking for his first win since May 21.

San Diego Padres: Slowly slipping out of contention in the NL West

Riding a rollercoaster style season, San Diego aims for a series split with the Braves before heading home to face NL West Division leading Los Angeles. Following a 14-15 run during the month of May, the Padres are 5-4 in June and their 30-31 overall record has the Friars 5.5 games behind the Dodgers. RHP Andrew Cashner (2-8 ERA 4.05) gets the call for San Diego and he has given up 12 earned runs on 19 hits over 10.1 innings pitched during his last two starts. 

Braves vs Padres MLB Total Betting Prediction: We are a little surprised by the low game total on this contest as 12 of the Padres last 14 contests have resulted in at least seven total runs being scored. Atlanta has been in high scoring games as well as 12 of their past 16 contests have matched or exceeded the total on today’s game. We are backing the OVER price posted at the Bovada online sportsbook with a 500 unit wager on the Padres vs Braves battle today.
