Atlanta Braves vs Texas Rangers 5/16/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Atlanta Braves will go against the Texas Rangers in MLB action in Globe Life Field, TX, on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at 8:05 PM ET.


After Sunday’s walk-off loss, Atlanta lost their first road series of the year as they were swept by the Blue Jays in Canada.


As of Monday, the Braves had a record of 25-15 and were five games ahead of the Phillies in the NL East rankings.


On Sunday, Atlanta’s 10-hit barrage was paced by two singles from Ronald Acuna Jr. (two runs, RBI) and Austin Riley, but they were unsuccessful.


Acuna Jr.’s eighth home run, Ozzie Albies’ tenth, and Kevin Pillar’s fourth all contributed to the defeat.


Starting pitcher Collin McHugh pitched 1.2 innings, surrendering three runs (none earned) on six hits, two walks, and two strikeouts.


He was not considered in the decision. In two-thirds of an inning, relief pitcher Raisel Iglesias (0-1) received the loss after giving up two runs on three hits, one walk, and no strikeouts.


Although the Braves did not yet formally named their starting pitcher for this game, all indications are that Jared Shuster will receive the nod for his third start of the year.


Shuster’s most recent start, on April 7 at home against the Padres, didn’t affect the decision. He pitched four innings in a game the Braves ultimately lost 5-4, giving up four runs on six hits, four walks, and four strikeouts. 


  • The Atlanta Braves are 1-4 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Braves are 13-8 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Braves’ last 5 matches.

Atlanta Braves vs Texas Rangers Predictions 5/16/2023


Texas broke a 3-3 tie with the A’s on Sunday with a strong eighth inning, winning the game and the series with a 3-0 record. With a record of 25-15 as of Monday, the Rangers were four games ahead of the Astros in the AL West.


Robbie Grossman (two runs, three RBI) and Adolis Garcia (two runs, five RBI) both had three hits for Texas on Sunday, helping the team to a victory.


For the Rangers, Grossman hit his fifth home run and Garcia hit his tenth. Despite pitching effectively, Andrew Heaney was not given a decision.


In six innings, he gave up just one run on four hits, two walks, and nine strikeouts.


After blowing the lead, Jonathan Hernandez (1-1) earned the vulture victory after allowing two runs on two hits, no walks, and one strikeout in one inning of relief.


Dane Dunning will make his 11th appearance and first start of the season for the Rangers here after originally being scheduled to start on Monday but being moved back a day.


Over 31.1 innings of work, he has a 3-0 record, a 1.72 ERA, a 0.862 WHIP, seven walks, and 19 strikeouts. Dunning won his previous start against the Mariners on the road on Wednesday.. 


  • The Texas Rangers are 4-1 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Rangers are 14-8 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Rangers’ last 5 matches.


Atlanta Braves vs Texas Rangers. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. The Rangers changed things up on the hill on Monday when Cody Bradford made his big league debut.


Dunning will now play against a pitching staff for the Braves that is full of uncertainty. Kyle Wright and Max Fried are on the IL; neither is anticipated to return until at least late June.


That leaves Morton, who pitched on Monday, Spencer Strider, who will throw on Wednesday, Bryce Elder, who pitched on Saturday, and the perennially favored “undecided” in the other positions for the Braves.


Texas will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
