Atlanta Braves vs Pittsburgh Pirates 8/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Atlanta Braves will meet with the Pittsburgh Pirates in MLB action in PNC Park, PA, on Monday, August 22, 2022, at 7:05 PM ET.


When Atlanta dropped three consecutive matches against the Mets earlier this month, it appeared as though it would be on the verge of losing its position in the National League East race. However, the Braves made a dramatic comeback.


They proceeded on an eight-game unbeaten run and ultimately prevailed in 11 of their last 12 contests, including three of four victories last week versus New York.


Atlanta continued to build on this momentum by defeating Houston twice over the course of the weekend, but it lost the series finale 5-4 on Sunday.


Atlanta’s starting pitcher on Monday night will be Jake Odorizzi, a right-handed starter. He just had a dreadful outing against New York in which he gave up five runs on 8 hits and 2 walks over five innings.


In Atlanta, Odorizzi pitched 13.2 innings and gave up nine runs, raising his season total to 4.15.


  • The Atlanta Braves are 11-2 SU in their last 13 matches. 
  • Atlanta is 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches against Pittsburgh. 
  • The Braves are 6-0 SU in their last 6 matches on the road.

Atlanta Braves vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 8/22/2022


Prior to the All-Star break, Pittsburgh was out of the playoff picture, but since then, things went even worse for the Pirates.


They dropped eight of their first nine matches to begin the second half of the season and going into this series, they now dropped 12 of their previous 16.


Pittsburgh defeated Cincinnati 5-4 in game one of their weekend series, but during the next two games, it let up a total of 19 runs.


With this series, the Pirates will conclude a nine-game homestand. They are barely ahead of Washington in having the second-worst record in the National League.


Roansy Contreras, a right-handed pitcher, will start this match for Pittsburgh. In his previous game against Boston, he went six innings, giving up three strikeouts while surrendering four runs on 6 hits and 4 walks.


Prior to being sent to the minors, Contreras pitched in the major leagues starting July 7. In his last six appearances, he surrendered seven home runs.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Pittsburgh’s previous 5 matches. 
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 matches against Atlanta.

Atlanta Braves vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. This is probably the best opportunity for a comeback that Odorizzi hoped for.


His first two outings with the Braves were not impressive, but he now has the chance to become comfortable against a weak Pittsburgh lineup.


Atlanta had a scorching offensive since the All-Star break, making them one of the major leagues’ hottest teams. Given how well the Mets are currently doing, the Braves cannot afford to relent in their pursuit of a second NL East championship.


In the early going, I anticipate them to take care of business and end this match. Atlanta will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
