Many people’s favorite to be the 2023 World Series Champion are on the brink of elimination heading into the Braves vs Phillies game 4 matchup. Atlanta won the NL East by 14 games this season, but it’s the second place team Philadelphia that holds a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.

Before Betting on Braves vs Phillies Game 4

The Phillies will try to turn out the lights on their divisional foe and the home team has momentum after belting six home runs in a 10-2 victory on Wednesday. In many ways this series should already be over if not for Philadelphia blowing a 4-0 lead in Atlanta’s 5-4 win in game two as the Phillies also won the series opener 3-0.

Thursday’s pitching matchup is a rematch of game 1, as Atlanta sends Spencer Strider up against the Phillies’ Ranger Suarez. Strider pitched well enough to win the opener with 7.0 IP and just 1 ER allowed, but the Braves offense couldn’t muster a single run.

Suarez lasts just 3.2 IP in game one, but he also allowed just 1-hit. Save for the meltdown in game two the Philadelphia bullpen has been great in this series – and of course if the offense can belt out 6 HRs again it takes a lot of pressure off the pitching staff.

Braves vs Phillies Game 4 Prediction & Pick

Home field is important on Thursday night, but it’s hard to go against Strider in this matchup. Many times when an offense unloads like the Phillies’ did on Wednesday they come back a bit flat the next time out and that’s what we’ll likely see out of Philadelphia as this series shifts back to Atlanta Saturday night – and with the Braves’ bats struggling so far this play is on the total. 

Pick: Under 8.5
