Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals will play the 2nd game of the series at the Nationals Park on Tuesday. The Braves won 9-5 the first of the series and are 2-2 against the Nats this season.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 35-27 record and have won 12 games in a row. The team is averaging 4.60 runs per game with a .244 at bat while allowing 4.17 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 16 home runs and 35 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .292. 

Kyle Wright leads the pitching staff with a 2.57 ERA, 80 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded for the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Max Fried (6-2, 2.64 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 2nd game of the series. Fried earned the win against Pittsburgh on Thursday, giving up one run on eight hits and zero walks in six innings. He had eight strikeouts. He has a 4-4 record with an ERA of 4.42 and 60 strikeouts in 13 appearances against the Nationals in his career.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 23-40 record and have lost 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.2 runs per game but allowing 5.5 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .302, 7 home runs and 38 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 13.

Josiah Gray leads the team with a 4.33 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Nationals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Jackson Tetreault (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 2nd game of the series. Tetreault will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to start Tuesday against the Braves.

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games against Washington.

Atlanta are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Washington are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games against Atlanta.

Prediction

The Braves continue to stay hot and have won 12 games in a row 6 of their last 6 games on the road. Max Fried has dominated the Nats in his last 3 meetings but he took the loss earlier this season against them. The Nats are calling the rookie Tetreault for this game and he hasn't good numbers in the minors and I think the Braves will pound him in his debut. Take the Braves.

PICK: Braves -1.5 (-110)
