Seattle Mariners vs Atlanta Braves  Predictions 5/20/2023


Last Wednesday, the Atlanta Braves completed a six-game road trip. The Toronto Blue Jays swept the Atlanta Braves (3-0, 5-2, and 6-5), although the Braves have since won two of their last three games against the Texas Rangers.


A three-game series at Globe Life Field in Arlington saw them win the opener 12-0, followed by a 7-4 loss, and the finale 6-5.


The Braves rely heavily on their offense, scoring 5.30 runs per game on a triple-slash of.257/.337/.465 (fifth in MLB). 


They share second-place honors in baseball for both OPS and OPS+ (115), and they have the second-highest OPS in baseball.


In the past two weeks and 378 at-bats, the Braves hit .241/.318/.450 with 20 home runs and 19 doubles. The Atlanta Braves rank first in the NL East.


The Braves hold a slugging percentage of .465 and average 5.30 runs per game (5th in the league). They have recorded 77 two-baggers while getting a free base 159 times and recording 228 runs.

The Atlanta Braves have compiled an OBP of .337 and a team batting average of .257 over the season.


In the middle match of the Mariners series, Atlanta will probably decide to use the bullpen.


The Braves have a significant injury problem, and with both Kyle Wright and Max Fried on the injured list, Atlanta’s rotation has two holes. Michael Tonkin (2.01 ERA, 0.63 WHIP) and Danny Young 


(1.08 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) are expected to throw some innings on Saturday. Over the past ten days and 30 innings of work, the Braves bullpen went 1-3 with one save, compiling a meager 5.10 ERA and.341 opposition BABIP. 


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Atlanta’s last five matches.
  • The Atlanta Braves are 4-1 SU in their previous five games at home.
  • The Atlanta Braves are 2-4 SU in their last six matches at home against Seattle.

Seattle Mariners vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Seattle Mariners. Seattle’s offense is inferior to Atlanta’s.


However, the Braves dominate left-handed pitchers in 2023 (152 OPS+) while posting a 103 OPS+ against them.


While Seattle has a 113 wRC+ this month against southpaws and a 102 wRC+ against right-handed pitchers, Atlanta has a fantastical 201 wRC+ this month against left-handed pitchers.


The Mariners now have five right-handed pitchers in their bullpen, including closer Paul Sewald (3.66 ERA, 2.84 FIP, nine saves) and Justin Topa (1.06 ERA, 2.47 FIP). The Seattle Mariners will win to a predicted score of 7-5.
