Gamblers see 2024 Atlanta Braves as Money

Atlanta is coming off six consecutive National League East Division titles. Including the 2021 World Series championship. The other five times, Atlanta did lose a playoff series that she should have won. Last year epitomized the Braves’ reputation.

2024 Atlanta Braves Key Players

LHP Max Fried is the number-one MLB odds starter for the Braves. Fried was a 2022 NL All-Star and had three Rawlings NL Gold Glove awards. Last year, Fried was 8-1 with a 2.55 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. His ERA has been under 2.60 in four of his last five seasons.

RHP Raisel Iglesias is the Atlanta closer. Last season, Iglesias was 5-4 with a 2.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 33 saves in 37 opportunities.

RF Ronald Acuna Jr is one of the most exciting players in the game. Last year, he produced 149 runs, 35 doubles, 41 home runs, 106 runs batted in with a 1.012 OPS.

2024 Atlanta Braves Offseason Moves

Key offseason acquisitions: LHP Chris Sale, LF Jarred Kelenic, RHP Reynaldo López, LHP Aaron Bummer
Key offseason departures: OF Eddie Rosario, RHP Kirby Yates, RHP Kyle Wright, RHP Michael Soroka, INF Nicky Lopez

Correlate that gamblers are wondering what the Braves have beyond Max Fried and Spencer Strider in the rotation. If Charlie Morton duplicates last year’s success and Sale ends his injury woes, this starting staff can support another title run. Especially with what should again be one of the game’s most potent offenses.

The desire to fill the pitching staff with power arms led the Braves to re-sign both Pierce Johnson and Joe Jiménez. That was before acquiring López and Bummer. At the onset, López will likely begin the season in the rotation. But he could be a high-leverage option if he returns to a relief role. The acquisition of Kelenic came via the Braves’ willingness to take on bad contracts. Thus they will ultimately pay about $17 million for the high-upside former top prospect.
Atlanta ranks 6th for MLB payroll.
