Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Latest Odds, Picks and Predictions (Sunday, May 9, 2021)

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Betting

Philadelphia manager Joe Girardi is learning all about reality.  Specifically, he wanted for nothing as manager of the Yankees.  Girardi had a team with the largest payroll in baseball.  And with quality depth at every position.  Now in his second season at Philadelphia, he has less to work with.  And that is reflected in the Phillies record with the MLB betting odds.  At the onset of the season, the Braves were touted as the NL East team to beat.  And with plenty of good reason. Atlanta won the NL East the past three years.

Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves CashBet Wagering Analysis

Atlanta will draw the majority of action with the Sportsbook odds.  Cause by the Braves being one of the biggest name brands on the board.  Squares are not going to step into Atlanta as the home team.  Especially against a questionable opponent such as the Phillies.  Philadelphia will get a few peaks from sharps.  Wise Guys aren’t going to overpay for a struggling Braves team.

Phillies Trying to Defy Metrics Gravity

Philadelphia dropped three of their most recent five games.  And three of those five contests went over the Betting on baseball total.  Philadelphia is 14-15 straight up, 13-16 vs. the run line, and 16-13 over the total.  In sum, the Phillies rank 24th for run production and 20th for earned run average.

Namely, Aaron Nola is the probable Philadelphia starer.  Nola is 2-1 with a 3.11 earned run average and 0.956 WHIP.  Philadelphia won four of his last six starts.  And then, closer Hector Neris has six saves in seven opportunities with a 1.88 ERA.

Two years ago, the Phillies backed up the truck for right fielder Bryce Harper.  Thus far, Harper is paying good dividends on that investment.  Harper is hitting .317 with a 1.044 OPS.  Additionally, he has 18 runs, five doubles, six home runs, and ten runs batted in.

Another Phillies star making a difference is catcher JT Realmuto.  At the beginning is a .309 average and .906 OPS.  Realmuto brings ten runs, five doubles, three home runs, and 13 runs batted in.

Gamblers Becoming Less Brave on Atlanta
