Orioles vs Braves Prediction, Odds and Best Bet for May 6 (Braves Batters Beat Up on Kyle Bradish)

The Baltimore Orioles (22-10) and Atlanta Braves (22-11) are scheduled to play Game 2 of their three-game series on Saturday, May 6.

A massive seven-run seventh inning helped the Orioles to a 9-4 win over the Braves less than 24 hours ago. Right fielder Anthony Santander put on an unforgettable show, hitting a pair of two-run homers in five at-bats.

The Braves enter this contest as home favorites on the money line and spread according to FanDuel Sportsbook odds. This 7:15 p.m. ET clash also features an 8-point plus/minus, with the plus favored at -115 odds.

The Braves have a solid opportunity to reclaim their win with Kyle Bradish taking the helm as the Orioles starter. The former New Mexico State arm gave up 10 runs on 20 hits in just 14 2/3 innings of work, leading to an abysmal 6.14 ERA in four starts.

Meanwhile, Spencer Strider pitched like a star for the Braves. Not only is the Atlanta starter 4-0 with a 2.57 ERA, but he also beats the Majors in hits allowed (4.9) and strikeouts (14.7) by nine innings launched. He also had 13 strikeouts over eight innings in his last home appearance.

After the Orioles batted 12 times last night, I don’t like their odds against a batting artist like Strider. The Braves’ top batsmen (Matt Olson, Sean Murphy, Ronald Acuna Jr., etc.) are also going to make life difficult for Bradish. All in all, things just don’t seem to be in Baltimore’s favor.

Final score prediction: Brave: 6 | Orioles: 4

I expect the Braves to score over 4.5 points tonight. After all, Bradish has been terrible, giving up 10 runs in just his last seven innings. Atlanta has more than enough firepower to take advantage of the 26-year-old’s shortcomings, especially after Brian Snitker’s club scored more than five points in seven of the last 11 games.

Bet: Braves Total Runs – Over 4.5 (-128)
