Atlanta Braves – Philadelphia Phillies Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 19:05

Nola sports a 4.22 ERA overall this season with 110 strikeouts. He struck out 20 batters in 15 innings while allowing just one earned run. Nola is 6-2 this season and is starting to heat up. This game could prove to be a good litmus test for the pitcher who finished third in NL Cy Young voting last season. Over his last two starts, the Phillies starter has performed very well.

Despite being on the road, expect the Braves to be favourites here. The Braves seem to be running away with the NL East title and aside from being on a great run of results in recent weeks, they also have a clear advantage here in the pitching department due to both Vargas struggles and Frieds impressive run of results.

The Braves have won Foltynewicz's last nine starts, and his previous six were after missing a month and a half on the DL. In his last four starts, he has an ERA of only 2.11. The Braves are 4-1 in Foltynewicz's last five starts against the Phillies, and they have won his last five road starts. In his previous start, he did not give up any runs and only gave up two hits in a 7-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. He was solid in that start giving up one earned run on only four hits in six innings in a 15-1 Atlanta win. Foltynewiczs only start against the Phillies this season was in mid-June and hi 2nd to last one before landing on the DL.

Fried has has his ups and downs recently, but he has the hotter lineup behind him right now and this is a series that the Braves can use to make a statement to the rest of the division. Ill lay the reasonable juice with the Braves in this one. The Phillies just dont have luck with Eflin on the mound, losing nine of his last 11 starts and Eflin himself has allowed six or more runs in three of his last five starts, including seven runs, six earned, in just three innings against Atlanta just over three weeks ago. With Eflin starting here, my thought process doesnt change. The Phillies kind of threw me off by shifting Arrieta in place of Eflin in the game one start, but the result was still the same and that was a Braves blowout.

Betting Odds

Nola has given up two or fewer runs in nine of his last 15 starts, and the Phillies are 30-12 in his last 42 home starts.

In four starts against Atlanta this season, Nola is 3-0 with an ERA of 3.60 and the Phillies have won his last five starts against them, overall, and have also won his previous five home starts facing them. The Phillies have lost Nolas last three starts, and in his last one he gave up five earned runs in only five hits in four innings in an 8-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.
