Starting Pitchers

Anthony DeSclafani returns to action Tuesday night after a two-month stint on the injured list with an ankle injury. DeSclafani pitched in three games prior to his injury and recorded an 0-1 record with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. The right-hander went 13-7 with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in a breakout year for the Giants last season.

Spencer Strider pitched 5.2 innings and allowed two earned runs with 11 strikeouts in an 8-2 Braves win over the Washington Nationals last Wednesday. Strider has made a successful transition into the starting rotation after starting the year in the bullpen and has compiled a 3-2 record with a 2.45 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 44 innings pitched.

San Francisco Has Lost Two Straight After Recent Hot Streak

The Giants lost their series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Sunday and followed that up with another one-run loss to the Braves on Monday night. San Francisco had gone 7-1 in its previous eight games.

The team’s starting staff and bullpen have been consistently good in recent weeks. The Giants have gone 8-4 over their last 12 games and have allowed only 2.42 runs per game over that stretch. Bettors taking San Francisco as their Giants vs Braves prediction on Tuesday will be counting on this trend of strong pitching to continue.

Atlanta Has Been Red-Hot All Month

Orlando Arcia got to play the role of hero on Monday night, slapping a base hit into left field to drive in the game-winning run for the Braves in the bottom of the ninth inning. Just about everyone in the lineup has had the chance to shine during Atlanta’s red-hot month of June.

The Braves reportedly had a closed-door meeting after falling to 23-27 with a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks in their final game in May. That meeting seems to have done the trick as Atlanta is 15-2 since then. The defending World Series champions look to keep playing well in this tough homestand against the Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Giants vs Braves Pick & Insights

Giants: Keys To Victory

Anthony DeSclafani gets a tough assignment in his return facing one of the hottest teams in baseball. If DeSclafani pitches to his potential, San Francisco should have a shot at pulling off an upset as a Giants vs Braves prediction, though the offense is going to have to do its part as well.

Braves: Keys To Victory

The Braves are playing great in every facet of the game at the moment and nine of their last 10 wins have come by two runs or more. This could end up being another pitchers’ duel if DeSclafani returns from the injured list in form and it could be an easy win for Atlanta as a Giants vs Braves pick if he doesn’t.
