The Atlanta Braves will go against the San Diego Padres in MLB action in Petco Park, CA, on Monday, April 17, 2023, at 9:40 PM ET. Through the first few weeks of the year, the Atlanta Braves are once again the NL East’s best team.


The Braves won five consecutive games going into Sunday’s series finale against the Royals, despite a number of ailments, including starters Max Fried and Kyle Wright.


The recent hot streak for the Braves was highlighted by their offense, which scored 36 runs in a five-game winning streak. The Braves defeated the Royals 5-4 on Sunday to sweep the series.


The Braves’ sixth consecutive victory came courtesy of an RBI single by Vaughn Grissom in the ninth inning and a home run by Ozzie Albies in the eighth.


On Monday at San Diego, the Braves will use the left-handed pitcher Max Fried. After sustaining a hamstring injury after his first start of the year, Fried is back from the injured list. In 12 starts last year, Fried had a road record of 6-3 and a 2.55 ERA.


Fried pitched on the road for 77.2 innings, giving up 61 hits while walking just seven hitters and striking out 72. Fried faced the Padres in just one start last season, going six innings while giving up nine hits and 4 runs for no decision.


  • The total went OVER in 6 of Atlanta’s last 7 matches.
  • The Atlanta Braves are 6-0 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The Braves are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games with San Diego.

Atlanta Braves vs San Diego Padres Predictions 4/17/2023


As the team tries to establish some continuity, the San Diego Padres played baseball at a .500 clip so far this season.


With all-stars Juan Soto, Xander Bogaerts, and Manny Machado as its cornerstones and Fernando Tatis Jr. returning from suspension in less than a week, San Diego has one of the strongest lineups in baseball.


Despite not having starter Joe Musgrove, Tatis, or reliever Robert Suarez yet this season, the Padres continued to compete. The Padres defeated the Brewers 10-3 on Saturday to snap a three-game winless run.


The Padres lineup was rendered ineffective in a 1-0 loss to Milwaukee in the series finale on Sunday. Yu Darvish had a fantastic outing, but the Padres only managed five hits and 11 strikeouts. 


For the first game of the series against the Braves, the Padres will pitch lefty Ryan Weathers. Weathers made two starts this year and are 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA. So far, the Padres prevailed in each of his starts.


In his two starts, Weathers threw 10 innings while giving up eight hits and three runs. In two starts, he only struck out five batters while pitching to contact, walking three more. 


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of San Diego’s last 7 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of San Diego’s last 7 games with Atlanta.

Atlanta Braves vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves.


In this game, the blazing-hot Braves will have Fried back in the lineup and will go up against left-hander Weathers, who is on the Padres’ roster as a result of Joe Musgrove’s injury.


With players such as Ronald Acuna Jr, Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, Sean Murphy, and Marcel Ozuna providing pop from the right side of the plate, the Braves hit a solid.265 against left-handed pitching in 2022.


The struggling Padres are currently just 8-9 on the season, while the Braves won six straight games. The Padres now rank 24th in the majors in team batting, hitting just.245 versus left-handed pitchers in 2022.


The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
