The Braves have had a bit of a hiccup recently, winning only 2 of their last 6 games. However, they remain a powerhouse team ready to bounce back.

 

Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals, with a record of 68-85, have had a challenging season. While their home record of 33-44 indicates a level of comfort at Nationals Park, they'll be looking to finish the season on a strong note.

Prediction

When it comes to the Over/Under prediction for this game, the spotlight falls on Charlie Morton's recent struggles on the mound. While he has had a solid season, his recent performance suggests vulnerabilities.
