Atlanta Braves (41-31) vs. New York Yankees (51-25)

Atlanta Braves have maintained an admirable record this year, maintaining a respectable team batting average of .244, notching 313 runs and 76 homers from their lineup – yet their road game performance, with 16-19 against-the-spread records against them suggests potential challenges when traveling away from home settings.

Hurston Waldrep (0-1 W-L, 16.71 ERA) vs. Nestor Cortes (4-5 W-L, 3.36 ERA)

Hurston Waldrep of the Atlanta Braves presents his team with an uncertain situation due to a lofty 16.71 earned run average and his win-loss record over just seven innings pitched this year. His performance metrics, particularly an exceptionally high WHIP of 2.43, reveal serious difficulties managing hits and walks – an essential vulnerability when facing off against such an elite lineup as that of the Yankees. Waldrep may still be getting adjusted to life in the majors, which poses a concern when entering an intimidating stadium like Yankee Stadium. As his tendency for home runs – three in just over an inning! Posing particular difficulty against teams that specialize in power hitting, Waldrep will need to dramatically enhance his control and composure to stave off aggressive Yankee batters.

Nestor Cortes of the New York Yankees presents an alternative example of stability and effectiveness with his 3.36 ERA and 1.1% WHIP across 93.2 innings pitched this season. His record may not speak for itself but his 86 strikeouts against only 18 walks show how well Cortes can control the strike zone and limit base runners. Cortes has demonstrated his resilience under high-pressure games, an asset which will serve him well against an offensively potent Atlanta Braves squad. His history of keeping home run totals to 12 over numerous innings suggests he could keep their sluggers under control and tilt this matchup towards New York. Cortes provides New York with a distinct edge as a more consistent and proven pitcher and may help turn this contest in their favor.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

Though specific betting odds for this matchup are yet to be released, given their stronger season performance and Cortes’ reliability as a pitcher, bettors should keep an eye on moneylines and point spreads as soon as they are released.


Atlanta Braves Betting Trends

The Braves have demonstrated some inconsistency recently. Although they’ve gone 4-1 overall over their past 5 games overall, their record against the spread stands at 2-3; trends indicate an edge towards games going over in total runs so bettors might consider wagers with higher-scoring outcomes due to Atlanta’s potent yet inconsistent batting lineup.


New York Yankees Betting Trends

The Yankees share an identical recent record against the spread as Atlanta Braves: three wins out of five against. Yet their overall season record supports greater betting confidence; 17 out of 34 home totals having gone over in total for those games at Yankee Stadium suggest higher scoring, which may impact betting strategies.


Atlanta Braves vs. New York Yankees 6/23/24 Betting Picks

Based on both teams’ comprehensive analysis and current form, it appears the Yankees hold an edge, particularly with Cortes on the mound. Meanwhile, Waldrep may hinder Atlanta in terms of pitching advantage.

Assuming both teams tend towards high scoring games, our advice for MLB picks today would lean heavily toward picking the Yankees as winners and taking an over/under game total bet based on both teams’ tendencies to do so. Prop bets could focus on strikeouts/home runs given these pitchers/hitters’ profiles.
