Cincinnati Reds vs Atlanta Braves 4/12/2023 Previews, Tips and Expert Picks

On Wednesday, April 12, 2023, at 7:20 PM ET, the Cincinnati Reds will take on the Atlanta Braves in Truist Park, GA, in an upcoming MLB matchup. After winning three of their first four games this season, the Reds have dropped five of their last six matches. What’s noteworthy is that four of the six losses were by a narrow margin of a single run, reflecting a team that is competitive but struggling to close out games. According to Vegas Insider, the Reds opened the season with a projected over/under victory total of 65.5, which is the lowest in the NL Central division.

Despite a team batting average of only .188, the Reds are averaging 4.5 runs per game, with Jason Vosler leading the way with three home runs and nine RBI. Jake Fraley has also been impressive with a .370 average and nine RBI. The Reds will send 23-year-old right-hander Hunter Greene to the mound on Wednesday, who has a record of 0-0 with a 5.63 ERA this season. In his first two starts this year against the Pirates and the Phillies, Greene pitched well, but his team couldn’t manage to get him a win. In his rookie year in 2018, Greene made 24 starts and finished with a 5-13 record and a 4.44 ERA. However, he did win his MLB debut against the Braves last year, allowing just three runs over five innings.

  • The Cincinnati Reds are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games on the road.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Cincinnati’s last 7 games on the road against Atlanta.
