MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Atlanta Braves are in desperate need of a win and will send Kyle Muller to the hill in an effort to shut down this solid Washington Nationals batting lineup and put his team in a position to pick up the big home W.
The Washington Nationals are now riding a 4-10 run into this series with the Braves, which has essentially ended their postseason hopes and I can’t imagine this team is going to be too motivated after the GM traded Max Scherzer to the Dodgers sending a clear message to the locker room that they are focusing firmly on the future.
They were still competitive in their last series, though, and they are still in the hunt for this division as they somehow are only 7 games back of the New York Mets in the division despite being 10 games under .500.
The bats will probably need to show up in a big way here if the Nationals are going to win this game, as we do not yet know who their starting pitcher is going to be and their pitching staff outside of Scherzer has not exactly been amazing this year.
The Atlanta Braves have a solid team on paper, and they have finally started to show it going 4-2 in their last 6 outings and they are now just 2 games back of the Mets in the NL East, so they are still right in the mix despite being just .500.
There were a lot of question marks about this Braves batting lineup after Ronald Acuna Jr went down, and that is with good reason, but they have managed to keep scoring consistent runs and they will once again need to do that to pick up a win against this Nats team.
Kyle Fuller will be on the mound here and that is a big plus for the Braves in this spot, as he has only allowed 2 runs in his last 3 outings spanning 14 total innings pitched, so he should be ready to go for the challenge that the Washington bats bring.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Atlanta Braves I have a whole lot more faith in at this point then the Nationals, as the Braves likely will have the advantage on the mound and have a comparatively good batting lineup to Friday’s visitors.
I do feel like this Nationals team will fall off a bit towards the end of the season as well, as the loss of Scherzer will not only hurt in terms of his pitching but also in terms of the team’s all around morale.
