Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals will play the 3rd game of the series at the Nationals Park on Wednesday. The Braves won 10-4 on Tuesday and are 3-2 against the Nats this season.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 36-27 record and have won 13 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:

Spencer Strider (2-2, 2.35 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 3rd game of the series. Strider struck out eight batters in 5.2 scoreless innings against the Pirates, allowing four hits and one walk.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 23-41 record and have lost 6 of their last 8 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: 

Erick Fedde (4-4, 4.87 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 3rd game of the series. Fedde earned the win over the Brewers on Friday, pitching 5.2 innings and allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four batters. He is 0-4 with an ERA of 10.80 and 26 strikeouts in 8 appearances against the Braves in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against Washington.

Atlanta are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games at home.

Washington are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games when playing at home against Atlanta.

Prediction

The Braves continue to stay hot and have won 13 games in a row 7 of their last 7 games on the road. They continue to dominate the Nationals as they have won the last 10 head to head games playing on the road and I don't really see how this can change as Fedde has been pounded by the Braves. Spencer Strider has only 3 starts this season with the Braves but he has done a decent job. Take the Braves.

PICK: Braves -1.5 (-120)
