The Atlanta Braves and the San Diego Padres face off in a marquee matchup at 4:05 p.m. ET on Saturday. San Diego is listed as the slight -115 favorite (risk $115 to win $100) at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 8.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page). 

Before making any Braves vs. Padres picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, enters Week 2 of the 2022 season on a 216-181 roll on top-rated MLB money-line picks that dates back to last season, returning over $900 for $100 players. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!

The model knows Atlanta bounced back from a two-game losing streak with a 5-2 win on Friday night. Adam Duvall hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning, while Ozzie Albies homered for the second straight game. Closer Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn his first save with the Braves. Atlanta has one of its best pitchers on the mound for this game, as right-hander Ian Anderson is coming off an outstanding rookie season. 

The model also knows the Padres have one of the best lineups in baseball. San Diego poured in 12 runs when these teams met on Thursday night, led by a five-hit game from star third baseman Manny Machado. He is now batting .389 on the season and has driven in six runs, while first baseman Eric Hosmer is hitting at a .400 clip. Starting pitcher Nick Martinez was excellent in his first start of the year, allowing just one run across 5.0 innings at San Francisco. 

Now, it has set its sights on Braves vs. Padres. We can tell you the model is leaning Over on the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
