Tuesday night, takes us to the City Of Brotherly Love where the Atlanta Braves will take on the Philadelphia Phillies in a clash between two National League East divisional rivals here in the third game of this four game series. Both teams will be looking to keep the momentum rolling here in this game. Both teams come into game occupying a playoff spot in the National League, as Atlanta is running away with the NL East and Philadelphia currently holds into the top spot in the NL Wild Card race.
The Atlanta Braves come into this game as one of the best teams in all of Major League Baseball this season. They are coming off of a successful doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday where they split the doubleheader with Philadelphia. They will be looking to pick up their second victory of the series here on Tuesday night and clinch at least a split of the series as well. Atlanta comes into the second game of this series with a record of 90-54 through their first 144 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season and they have already clinched themselves a playoff spot in the National League regardless of what happens over the remainder of the season.
Atlanta has all but officially locked up the National League East division as they have built up a fifteen game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies and they are closing in on clinching the division over the next week and a half. Their magic number is all the way down to four coming into the third game of this series on Tuesday night. With a victory they could drop their magic number down to two games and they will certainly have a solid chance of grabbing the victory with Max Fried getting the baseball for the third game of this series. He is having a solid season and he will be looking to keep the momentum rolling in this one.

The Philadelphia Phillies will be looking to pick up a crucial victory here on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves at home after splitting a doubleheader with them on Monday night in what was a solid showing for Philadelphia to open up this series. Philadelphia had a slow start to the season after coming into the year with plenty of expectations, but they have managed to pick it up over the summer and get themselves into a position to make another deep playoff run and defend their National League pennant at the end of the regular season.
They have built up a somewhat comfortable lead for the top spot in the National League wildcard race and they are not far away from officially clinching themselves a spot in the postseason this year. Philadelphia comes into this game with a record of 79-65 through their first 144 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season. They are on a one game winning streak after picking up a victory in the night cap of the doubleheader for Monday night and they have picked up five victories in their last 10 games on the season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Atlanta is 47-25 on the road this season
- Atlanta is 28-21 after a loss this season
- Philadelphia is 6-6 as a home underdog this season
I have the Atlanta Braves picking up the victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the third game of this series on Monday night. With Max Fried taking the mound for the Atlanta Braves I think it gives Atlanta the advantage here in this one against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. As this should be a close and competitive game between two solid teams and two solid starting pitchers but in the end I have Atlanta pulling out the victory.
