Pick: Braves ML (-135)

The Detroit Tigers and the Atlanta Braves will play the third and final game of this series here on Wednesday afternoon. This will also be the third and final meeting between these two teams during the 2024 Major League Baseball regular season. Atlanta has picked up the win in both of the previous games against Detroit by the same score of 2-1. Now they will look to grab their third consecutive victory over the Tigers and complete the series sweep. Meanwhile, Detroit will look to maintain a little bit of momentum with a victory here in Wednesday’s finale on the road in Atlanta.  

It has been a less than impressive season for the Detroit Tigers and they come into this game stagnant, and below the .500 mark throughout the early part of the regular season. Plenty of people have the roster to compete for an American League Central division title this season. However, this has not been the case coming into the summer. As they find themselves sitting towards the bottom of the division ahead of only the Chicago White Sox, who have been one of the worst teams in all of baseball this year. Despite the losing record because baseball has been so strange throughout the part of the year that Detroit is still within range to win one of the three wildcard spots in the American League.

Tarik Skubal gets the start for the Detroit Tigers here on Wednesday afternoon, and he has easily been their best starting pitcher this year. In fact, he has been one of the best starting pitchers in all of baseball, and he will look to further prove that to be true with another solid performance against the Atlanta Braves. He comes into this game with an 8-2 record and a 2.20 Earned Run Average. Despite the lackluster season from Detroit, he is in the running for the American League Cy Young award, and he has an opportunity to further prove his case with a dominant victory over Atlanta.

Despite not having Ronald Acuna Junior, the Atlanta Braves are still in a solid position coming into the summer. They were struggling over the past couple of weeks, but they have picked it up as of late or at least throughout the first two games of this series against Detroit. They are undefeated against Tigers throughout the first two games of this series and they look to grab a consecutive victory here on Wednesday afternoon at home. They picked up a pair of one run victories throughout the first two games of the series, both by a score of 2-1. They are hoping for a little bit more out of their offense throughout the third game of the series here in this one going against one of the best pitchers in baseball right now.

Reynaldo Lopez gets the start for Atlanta in this game and he comes into this one with six victories on the season and he will look to pick up number seven here on Wednesday. This could be a huge momentum boost for the Atlanta Braves as the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East division. Atlanta will also extend their lead in the National League wildcard race into the end of June and more of a gap between them and several struggling teams in the National League. Although you can argue that Atlanta may not win a World Series without Ronald Acuna this season, they are still a very dangerous team that is capable of making a deep playoff run. They will look to put on display throughout this game. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Atlanta is 23-13 at home 

- Detroit is 18-20 on the road 

- Detroit is 12–19 against teams above .500

I expect the Atlanta Braves to grab a third consecutive victory over the Detroit Tigers here at home on Wednesday to close out the series. However, I expect this one to be a little bit more high scoring later in the game after both starting pitchers have exited the contest. But in the end, I am looking for a similar result as we saw through the first two games of this series and that is another Atlanta Braves victory at home.
