MLB Baseball Predictions – New York Mets vs.Atlanta Braves Wednesday July 2nd


The Braves are playing well and have a hot starter planning Julio Teheran. But it’s dangerous to lay and endless choice with Atlanta. Only two teams have scored fewer runs than Atlanta this season. The Braves are reduced to small ball without Evan Gattis, who along side Justin Upton would be the team’s only serious long ball threats.

Atlanta Braves Win another Big GameAtlanta also is unlikely to own star closer Craig Kimbrel, who has pitched in the past three days. The Mets tend to be more dangerous than they appear. They have either won or lost by only one run in nine of these last 13 games. Right-hander Jacob deGrom will become for New York. Atlanta is 2-7 the past nine occasions when facing a right-hander at home.

The Braves have lost seven of the final 10 times, too, when they certainly were favored at home. Like the majority of young pitchers, deGrom has been inconsistent. But he’s fighting to stay in New York’s starting rotation and has looked good in his last two starts, including shutting out the Marlins on five hits in seven innings within a 4-0 victory on June 21. The Braves have never faced deGrom, which will be for their disadvantage.
