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

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times and it is off to a strong start to the 2022 season. It's on a 56-47 roll on top-rated MLB money-line picks through 11 weeks. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model knows the Giants will send a solid starting pitcher to the mound in the series finale. Former All-Star left-hander Alex Wood takes the ball for San Francisco, and he has a 3.99 ERA since joining the Giants. Wood is walking only 2.4 batters per nine innings, with left-handed hitters struggling to a .486 OPS against him. Wood, a former Brave, also has a 3.89 career ERA against Atlanta.

The model also knows the Braves bring tremendous power, with NL-best marks in home runs and doubles. Atlanta also has a stellar starting pitching option on Thursday in Kyle Wright. The right-hander has a 2.94 ERA this season, generating nearly 10 strikeouts and fewer than three walks per nine innings. Wright is also giving up only 0.5 home runs per nine innings, with opponents posting a .582 OPS against him in 2022.

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