Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Odds & Line Movement

The Braves are 5-2 in their past seven games against the Diamondbacks, including a 2-1 win in the second game of this series. The two teams split their first four meetings in 2021, and Atlanta is -187 to beat Arizona on Wednesday. According to the US Sportsbooks, the opening runs are 9.0.

Notes On The Atlanta Braves

On Monday, the Atlanta Braves won their game against Arizona. They scored seven runs in the fifth inning. Adam Duvall hit a homer that was 483 feet long. Freddie Freeman was 3-for-5 with two runs and some RBIs. Austin Riley also had three hits for three RBIs.

The Braves won their second game in a row and third out of the last eight. They were ahead of Philly by three games in the NL East on Tuesday.

Ian Anderson pitches on Wednesday. He won’t be pitching against the D-backs for the first time in his career. Ian is 23, and he has a 3.75 ERA and 1.29 WHIP this season. But he hasn’t been at his best lately–over his last four outings, he has an ERA of 4.

Notes On The Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks lost in their game against the Braves. It was their second loss in a row and 12th loss over 15 games overall. The Diamondbacks have struggled since then, losing eight of nine games at home.

The Diamondbacks have scored 49 runs in the last 12 games they played. This is more than most other teams in the league. On the other side, they had a 5.35 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and .264 batting average against when they played their team’s defense.

Merrill Kelly will be the starting pitcher Wednesday. He is 32 years old and has had a lot of ups and downs this season. Over the last four games, he has given up 12 runs on 32 hits and seven walks in 24 innings.

Pick & Prediction: Over 9

The Braves can not rely on Ian Anderson, but they can depend on the bullpen that has a 2.98 ERA. Plus, they will be able to beat the D-backs’ pitchers because their pitching staff is having trouble.

Atlanta has scored a lot of runs in their last 12 games. They have been hitting well and hit 19 home runs. If they keep on doing this, they will win the game.


The Diamondbacks bullpen has been struggling this season. They have a 4.50 ERA and 6.29 FIP, which means they allow home runs and walks. I hope the Braves will do well in this game because it is going to be a high scoring one.

Ian Anderson has allowed four earned runs in two of his previous three starts. But Merrill Kelly has yielded nine earned runs over his previous two starts and 9.2 frames of work.
