New York Mets vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 5/18/2021

The Atlanta Braves are looking to rebound from their loss on Monday.  The Braves are coming off a three-game set against the Brewers where they took the first 2 games but succumbed to a 10-9 loss in the series finale.  Atlanta lost five of their last seven games and are now 19-22, three games behind the Mets in the NL East Division.

Atlanta’s scoring offense belongs to the top 10 with its 4.67 average runs per game.  They rank 20th in team batting average at .229.  Ronald Acuna Jr leads the Braves with a major league-high 12 home runs and has driven 24 runs this season.  First baseman Freddie Freeman is just hitting .222, but is second in the team with 11 home runs and has driven 27 runs.  Left-hander Tucker Davidson will get his first start of the year to give each of the current rotation members a day to rest during this cycle.  Tuesday night is the second start of his career after being optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this season.  Davidson with 0.64 ERA through two starts will be auditioning to permanently fill the one vacant spot in the Braves rotation.

  • Atlanta is 9-4 SU in its last 13 games when playing at home against the New York Mets.

  • Atlanta is 10-4 SU in its last 14 games when against an opponent in the National League.

New York Mets vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game goes to the New York Mets.  Atlanta struggled as of late and with a questionable Tucker Davidson on the mound, the Mets bats can get going early and hold onto the lead.  Despite being swept by the Rays, the Mets were able to bounce back and take the first game. Taking the game is the New York Mets.  Final Score Prediction is 5-4.
