Atlanta Braves 2021 Season
Atlanta is the city of champions entering the 2022 season. The Braves are the reigning World Series champions after defeating the Houston Astros in 2021. They won the NL East with just 88 wins, which could be good enough again this year, but fans would like to see them win a couple more just to be sure.
Entering the season, the status of Freddie Freeman’s free agency looms over the franchise. Losing the face of the franchise would be a tough pill to swallow, but handing anyone a staggering contract can be too.

Betting on the Atlanta Braves
Braves Spread (Run Line)
When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.
The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.
Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Braves game:
- Houston Astros (+1.5)
- Atlanta Braves (-1.5)
As shown above, the Braves are favored by 1.5 runs against the Astros; the minus sign (-) indicates Atlanta is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Atlanta here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Braves would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Astros +1.5 would win if Houston won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.
The Braves were 78-83 on run lines in 2021, covering 48.5 percent of the time – putting them in the square in the middle in the league.
Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.
Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:
- Houston Astros +150
- Atlanta Braves -180
Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Braves, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Astros would net $150 if they pulled the upset.
The Braves went 88-73 in 2021, putting them in first place in the NL East and giving them the 12th best record in the league.
Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.
Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.
If the number for our hypothetical Braves-Astros matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.
Braves totals in 2021 were right in the middle of the league when betting the over, hitting at a 74-78-9 clip.
Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Ronald Acuna Jr. over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Max Fried will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.
Expectations are high right now in Atlanta, so bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Braves futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Braves to win the NL East, win the National League Pennant, win the World Series, or even in dividual awards like winning league MVP.
