San Francisco Giants vs. Atlanta Braves Pick – MLB June 20, 2022

The San Francisco Giants are in Atlanta at Truist Park for a four-game series. This should be a good one between two of the better teams in the National League. Neither were particularly hot out of the gate, but the Giants and Braves have stabilized.

The Braves looked like they had a bit of a hangover to open this season. They weren’t up to par and certainly not like a team that just won a World Series. That said, the Braves are playing at their best recently and are in the process of reeling the Mets in.

The Braves are going into this one six games behind the New York Mets. This sounds like a reach, but they’ve cut it closer compared to what things were looking like only a week ago.

Atlanta has won 15 of their previous 17 matchups going into tonight. The Braves lost their latest series at Wrigley Field, but salvaged things with a 6-0 win on Sunday.

Kyle Hendricks was tagged for 8 hits, and 6 earned runs across 4.1 innings of work. That was all the Braves would need, as the Cubs’ bullpen was able to silence their bats.

The Braves are at 38-29 while the Giants enter with a record of 37-28.

San Francisco is going into Truist Park near the Braves. They are three games behind the Dodgers going into this one.

The Giants are coming off a tough 4-3 loss to the Pirates at PNC Park on Sunday afternoon. Despite the loss, the Giants won two of three games at Pittsburgh.

Logan Webb and Max Fried will look to provide their clubs with strong opening performances tonight. Head below for our free Giants vs. Braves prediction on June 20, 2022.

Giants vs. Braves Prediction:

The Giants will lean on Logan Webb to duplicate his most recent performance at Truist Park. He is coming off a strong outing in his latest outing last week versus the Royals.

Webb locked down the Royals with 5 hits and no earned across 7 innings on the bump. The righty has recorded an ERA of 3.12 and a 1.27 WHIP in his last 18 innings of work.

Webb hasn’t done as well on the road, though.

He’s thrived at Oracle Park with an ERA of 2.74 and a 1.27 WHIP. Conversely, Webb has posted an ERA of 4.25 in 36 innings on the road.

The Braves should be a much tougher assignment in Atlanta than the Royals at home. I was on the Giants and had a lot of confidence in Webb delivering a performance as he did.

I’m not as confident in him outpitching Max Fried in this one. Fried should put a lot of pressure on the Giants.

The Braves are going into tonight second in the major leagues with 1.56 home runs per game and a .754 OBP. The bats have come around nicely following a slow start at the dish.

Atlanta has been tough at home with 5.19 runs scored per 9 innings.

Fried has been in fine form versus the Giants in his career. They are hitting just .196 with 1 home run in 50 at-bats.

San Francisco Giants vs. Atlanta Braves Betting Trends:

Giants

  • Record (Last 10): 7-3
  • 5-0 overall in their previous four games after a loss
  • 1-5 overall in their previous six games as an underdog on the road
  • 1-4 overall in thier previous five games on the road versus a team with a winning record
  • 5-11 overall in their previous 16 games versus the Braves
  • UNDER is 3-1-1 in their previous five games versus the Braves

Braves

  • Record (Last 10): 8-2
  • 5-0 overall in their previous five games versus the NL West
  • 7-0 overall in their previous seven games at Atlanta
  • 10-1 overall in their previous 11 games as a home favorite
  • 13-3 overall in their previous 16 games after a win
  • 9-1 overall in their previous ten games versus a right-handed starter

  • Fried owns a 2.90 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across 82.1 innings of work. He’s posted an ERA of 2.29 and a 0.92 WHIP in his previous three attempts.

    Fried is coming off the worst performance of his season versus the Nationals on the road.

    He was tagged for 6 hits and 4 earned runs in 5.2 innings on the hill. It was the first assignment he allowed more than 3 earned runs since May 13.

    He went four straight games with fewer than 3 earned runs allowed, including 1 or no runs in three straight games.

    The Braves may not run away with a win in this one. I’ve always been a fan of Webb.

    However, Fried should have the upper hand in a game he most likely bounces back in after struggling in his last trip to the bump.

    I’m going with the Braves to open what should be an entertaining series at Truist Park with a win.
