Chicago Cubs vs Atlanta Braves 4/28/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago Cubs will meet with the Atlanta Braves in MLB action in Truist Park, GA, on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 7:20 PM ET.

 

The Chicago Cubs are still seeking to compete and are dominating offensively, as they now lead baseball with a.758 team OPS and a five-run-per-game average.

 

They need to improve their on-base percentage, which is now at.346. Seiya Suzuki, the right fielder for the Chicago Cubs, is leading the offensive with a 1.098 OPS, four home runs, 13 RBI, 13 walks, and 18 strikeouts.

 

This year, he also stole one base. If he can improve his hitting consistency in the majors, he might be a valuable addition to their lineup.

 

Drew Smyly has a four-pitch repertoire (curveball, fastball, cutter, and slider), with the curveball being his strongest pitch. He throws it predominantly to lefties, who have a .250 batting average with a home run and 8 strikeouts. He’s only pitched against the Atlanta Braves twice (both starts) and gave up four runs (three earned) on 4 hits with a walk and 8 strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the Chi Cubs’ last 6 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 2-6 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • The Cubs are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches against Atlanta.

Chicago Cubs vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 4/28/2022

 

The Atlanta Braves started the season strongly at the plate, ranking 11th in MLB with a .712 OPS and seventh in MLB with a .407 slugging percentage.

 

Matt Olson, who has a .983 OPS with a pair of home runs and six RBI, as well as 13 walks and 16 strikeouts, was a significant part of their offensive success. He is hitting well, but if Atlanta wants to improve, he’ll have to start driving some runners in.

 

Kyle Wright throws 5 distinct pitches (curveball, fastball, sinker, changeup, and slider), and his curve was particularly effective this season, with batters going 3-for-24 with 12 strikeouts.

 

In his career, he pitched against the Chicago Cubs once, going 4.1 innings and allowing two runs on 3 hits with two walks, 4 hit-by-pitches, and 5 strikeouts.

 

  • The Atlanta Braves are 3-6 SU in their previous 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Atlanta’s last 8 matches against the Chi Cubs.
  • Atlanta is 7-2 SU in their last 9 matches at home against the Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. Kyle Wright looked dominating on the mound to open the season, and that should be the difference, as the old saying goes, you are only as good as the starting pitcher the next day.

 

Chicago is hitting well and getting on base, but the team’s biggest problem appears to be on the basepaths, where they are caught stealing four times, tied for sixth-most in MLB.

 

Atlanta’s lineup should be able to offer adequate run support, as Wright should keep the ball in the park, which was the primary focus of Chicago’s attack thus far. The Atlanta Braves claimed seven of their last eight home matches against the Cubs, so choose them to win here. The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
