(MLB) Atlanta vs. Chi White Sox, 04/02/2024 7:40 PM, Score: 2 - 3
Point Spread: -1.50 | -126.00 Atlanta (Away)
Result: Loss
The Atlanta Braves take on the Chicago White Sox in game two of a three-game set. The Braves took game one 9-0 in a rain shortened game. The Chicago White Sox have not recorded a win this season. Garrett Crochet will take the mound in game two. Crochet pitched well in his first start but the Sox gave him no support. He is 0-1 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP, striking out 8 in six innings. The Braves will go with Reynaldo Lopez on the mound. He has a 3.27 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP in 68 appearances last season. The Braves offense has been clicking to start the season, putting up 8.7 runs per game. They have been able to cover the run-line in four of their five games. The Sox have struggled at the plate, scoring just 2 runs a game and their pitchers have a 4.75 team ERA. Crochet pitched well in his MLB debut but that was against the Tigers. The Braves have a more formidable offense. I will take Atlanta on the run-line as I don’t think the Sox can score enough in this game.

Play on Atlanta minus 1.5 runs. This is a 3% play.
