ANALYSIS

Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Jake Odorizzi and the Braves Bounce Back?

The Marlins host the Braves in game two of the series from LoanDepot Park in Miami tonight after the Marlins took game one in a 4-0 shutout. The loss sparked one of the best trends I used during the 2022 season. That trend falls with the Braves in the second game of the series after a loss.

Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

The Braves are just one win or Mets' loss from clinching the division. The Mets looked like they were going to run away with the division after the first few months of the season, but Atlanta quickly responded by going 39-14 over June and July. Now, the defending World Series champs are one win away from clinching the division. They weren't able to do that yesterday, but they are set up for success today.

The Braves were the most successful team in game two's after a loss, going 15-3 in this spot this season. No other team had a stronger situational trend this season in a game one loss. Also, the Braves are facing a lefty. The Braves have been crushing lefties all season with a .775 OPS, which is second in the league behind the Cardinals. The Braves are 36-17 in games against left-handed starters, good for the second-highest win percentage in the league against left-handed pitchers.

The Braves faced Braxton Garrett on August 14th in LoanDepot Park and lost 1-3 despite Garrett pitching six shutout innings. With a chance to clinch tonight and a shutout loss against a lefty yesterday, I doubt the Braves will lose back-to-back games in this situation. The Marlins have struggled to give run support to their pitchers all season, and the Braves bats are too good to be held down against a lefty two games in a row. Jake Odorizzi is no ace, but he is facing an underwhelming Marlins lineup. Take the Braves to clinch the division tonight in a spot they have gone 83% in this season.
