Atlanta Braves vs Pittsburgh Pirates 6/9/22 MLB Picks, Predictions, Odds


The Pittsburgh Pirates and Atlanta Braves meet Thursday in MLB action at Truist Park. The Pittsburgh Pirates look for a win after splitting their last 6 games. The Atlanta Braves look to build on their 7-game winning streak.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Pirates have lost 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Ke’Bryan Hayes leads the Pirates with 53 hits and 20 RBI, while Bryan Reynolds and Michael Chavis have combined for 79 hits and 32 RBI. JT Brubaker gets the ball, and he is 0-5 with a 4.70 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. This will be Brubaker’s second career game against the Braves.

The Atlanta Braves have scored 24 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 8 games. The Braves have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Austin Riley leads the Braves with 59 hits and 34 RBI, while Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies have combined for 113 hits and 54 RBI. Max Fried gets the ball, and he is 5-2 with a 2.74 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Fried is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Pirates.

The Pirates are 42-99 in their last 141 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Braves are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 7-0 in their last 7 overall. The under is 13-6-3 in Pirates last 22 overall. The over is 11-3-1 in Braves last 15 home games. The Pirates are 1-9 in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings.

JT Brubaker has been respectable this season, but he pitches for the Pirates, and that’s why he lost four times in the month of May despite having a 2.63 ERA. Max Fried has allowed 37 hits and 13 runs in his last 45 innings. The Atlanta Braves are also playing their best ball of the season and their offense has caught fire. Really hard to fade the Braves here. Give me the Braves and the RL for max betting value.
