The Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants face off in an MLB showdown at Oracle Park on Monday.
The San Francisco Giants are 67-73 overall and have won two straight. In each of the last two games, the throwing has been good. The Giants offense was strong at the start of the season, but it slipped. The Giants are averaging 4.38 points per game, which ranks them 14th in the league. Joc Pederson has hit 22 home runs and 62 RBIs so far this season.
On the other side of this game, the Braves are 87-53 overall, but they are coming off a loss on Sunday. The pitcher really struggled to give up eight runs and that led to the one-run loss. The Braves are averaging 4.98 points per game, which is second in the league. Austin Riley hit 36 homers and had 90 RBIs. In this game, the attack must be good.

On the mound for the Braves is Spencer Strider who sits with a 10-4 record and a 2.69 ERA. In his last start against the A’s, he went six innings, allowing two hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Giants will be Alex Cobb who sits with a 5-6 record and a 3.68 ERA. Cobb has been inconsistent at times, but they need the right Cobb here.
The Braves are 5-0 in Strider’s last five starts. The Giants are 1-6 in their last seven games as a home underdog. Over bets are 4-0-1 in Strider’s last five road starts. Over bets are 3-0-1 in the Giants’ last four games against a right-handed starter.
I don’t expect many points from both teams in this game. Strider sits with a 2.69 ERA and allowed just two runs in his last start. Cobb sits with a 3.68 ERA but he’s going to slow down the Braves’ bats enough to keep this game underscored. Save the sub to cash out easily.
