Dodgers vs Braves Betting Pick
This game will be played at Truist Park at 7:20 PM ET on Friday, June 24, 2022.
Why Bet The Dodgers:
✅ The current Dodgers lineup has only one hit in 16 at-bats against Ian Anderson. That’s going to change Friday. Anderson holds a 6-3 record with a 4.35 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 13 starts (70.1 innings pitched) this season. He’s surrendered four or more earned runs in four of his last six appearances. The 24-year-old righty tossed 6.2 scoreless frames last Sunday, but it was against the slumping Cubs offense.
✅ Julio Urias will take the mound for the Dodgers. He’s enjoying a nice season despite his 4-6 record. The 25-year-old lefty sports a sharp 2.56 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 70.1 innings of work (13 starts) in 2022. He’s registered a 1.56 ERA and .132 BABIP through his first three starts in June.
✅ The current Braves have a paltry five hits and a .372 OPS in 34 at-bats versus Julio Urias. Ronald Acuna Jr. is 0-for-6 with three strikeouts; Austin Riley and Adam Duvall are 1-for-5 each, while both Dansby Swanson and Travis d’Arnaud are hitless against Urias.
Los Angeles Dodgers
At the time of writing, the 42-25 LA Dodgers were looking to sweep a three-game road series against the Cincinnati Reds. They’ve outscored the Reds 16-6 through the first two contests and had a 5-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning of Thursday’s closer.
The Dodgers have gone only 9-9 in their first 18 games in June. They’ve struggled at the plate, tallying a mediocre .248/.312/.404 slash line. Still, Freddie Freeman has three home runs in his previous four games, and the former National League MVP is slashing .344/.412/.590 across his last 68 plate appearances.
The 40-30 Braves were searching for their fourth win in five games on Thursday afternoon. They had a big 7-2 lead over the San Francisco Giants in the closing battle of a four-game series at Truist Park.
Atlanta has won 17 of its first 20 contests in June. The Braves have scored a whopping 126 runs in that stretch, posting a firm .275/.335/.527 triple-slash. Their pitching staff has compiled a nice 3.08 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and .222 opposing batting average so far this month.
