Best MLB Bets Today – Free (Sunday 9/3)


Welcome to a Sunday edition of MLB Best Bets. We’ve been unlucky the last two nights, but this afternoon we’ll look to right the ship in a matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves.


Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves have come to LA and sent a message to the entire MLB world. Atlanta has taken the first three games of the series and will look to complete a very impressive sweep of the Dodgers on the road this afternoon. Ronald Acuña Jr. has been up to the task this series in what has featured the top three candidates for the NL MVP award. Acuna has outplayed both Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman in this series and has cemented his place atop the MVP betting odds. 

Acuna homered for the third straight game yesterday and will look to make it four in this afternoon’s matchup against RHP Bobby Miller. Miller has relied on his slider, sinker and four-seam fastball to attack right-handers at the plate. See Acuna’s numbers against those pitches below:

Bobby Miller vs. RHB Ronald Acuña Jr. vs. RHP
Slider .318 ISO, 5 HR, 16 XBH
Sinker .432 wOBA, 5 HR, 9 XBH
4-Seam Fastball .277 ISO, 9 HR, 16 XBH

It’s safe to say Acuna went into this Dodgers series on a mission to showcase to the world why he is the top player in the NL this season. Acuna has covered at least two total bases in seven of his last 10 games and has had at least three bases in four of his last six. Today, we’ll back the Atlanta leadoff man to continue his assault on the LA pitching staff and put the final touches on a weekend sweep!
