Los Angeles Angels vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. They scored 28 runs in their past three home games and are offensively strong. Since they did a decent job batting against right-handers and Canning was struggling lately, giving up 13 runs in his past four starts, fans anticipate them to do well offensively in this game. He allowed six runs in each of his last two road starts, and with Los Angeles’ ninth-worst bullpen in the league, they will struggle to contain the Braves in this contest. Four of the Angels’ past six games ended in victories. They had trouble scoring runs lately, scoring just two in their past two games. Because Morton pitched well recently, allowing only nine runs in his past five starts, their offensive troubles will persist in this game. Atlanta has the third-best bullpen in the league, so they won’t have any issue slowing down the Angels in this game. He let up four runs in each of his past three home starts. Consider picking Atlanta to win the money line. The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 8-3.
