Atlanta Braves vs. Baltimore Orioles - Spencer Schwellenbach vs. Cade Povich (6:35 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (-125) at FanDuel

It’s been as rough a start to the year as the Atlanta Braves could ask for. After coming into the season as one of the favorites to win the World Series, the Braves have quickly found themselves trickling down the oddsboard as they struggle to generate any sort of consistency. Worse yet, they have gone through two major injuries on both sides of the field, losing star ace pitcher Spencer Strider and reigning MVP Ronald Acuna Jr.

Even before Acuna’s devastating season ending injury, the Braves offense were already going through a cold stretch. Once ranked near the top of the board across multiple key offensive metrics, the Braves now rank below league average in Team Total Hits, RBIs, On Base Percentage, and Total Runs. A shockingly bad stretch of play after a hot start, especially since they field one of the more formidable top of the orders in the league.

Their offense is now poised to bounce back heading into their matchup against the Orioles as they face off against Cade Povich. While Povich has only made one appearance so far this season, he severely underwhelmed as he finished the contest with an ERA of 10.13 and a WHIP of 1.688. Expect his struggles to continue against the likes of Michael Harris, Ozzie Albies, and former home run leader Matt Olson.

As for the Orioles, negative regression looms large for a unit that ranks below league average in On Base Percentage but first in Runs Scored and RBIs. Luckily for them, the looming regression may be pushed aside as the Braves Spencer Schwellenbach has also underwhelmed in his minimal appearances. In just two games played, Schwellenbach comes into the contest with an ERA of 8.38 and a WHIP of 1.552.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Milwaukee Brewers - Chris Bassitt vs. Tobias Myers (2:10 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (-113) at FanDuel

Speaking of offenses that have severely underwhelmed since the start of the season, the Toronto Blue Jays may take the cake as they have ranked well below average in Team Total Hits, On Base Percentage, Runs Scored, and RBIs since the start of the year. It has been so bad to the point that they have moved George Springer down to the back half of the order and moved Bichette out of the top three in an attempt to find a lineup that generates consistency.

Luckily for the Blue Jays, they are now in a position to generate some momentum with their offense as they face off against the Brewers Tobias Myers. Myers has struggled to punch opposing batters out with just 32 Total Strikeouts so far this year. His inability to punch out has left him prone to being scored against, also possessing an ERA of 4.15, a WHIP of 1.240, 30 Hits Allowed, and 16 Earned Runs Against.

As for the Brewers, their offense has remained well above league average across the same previously mentioned offensive metrics and a major reason why they have a firm control of first place in the NL Central standings. They will once again be in a position to open up the scoring from the opening pitch, facing off against the Blue Jays Chris Bassitt who takes the mound with an ERA of 3.80 and a WHIP of 1.377.

Bet on Over 0.5 Run (-113) at FanDuel
