The Nationals and Braves split a double-header on Friday with Washington taking the wild nightcap 10-9. Oddsmakers aren’t giving Washington much of a chance to make it two in a row however.
Washington has essentially called it a season being 11 games under .500 but the Braves need a win Saturday to keep ahead of the Phillies, who are just two games back in the East.
Washington’s 10-9 win on Friday night came as a surprise considering it ended a seven game losing streak and they were +170 underdogs.
The 9 runs allowed, even in the win, is indicative of how the Nationals’ season has gone. Despite having Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg (sometimes) in the rotation, the team ranks 26th in ERA and 29th in WHIP.
Erick Fedde will try to relieve some of those pitching woes on Saturday night. The right-hander is 1-3 with a 4.71 ERA on the year and has shuffled time between starting and being in the bullpen this year.
Atlanta hoped for a sweep and not a split on Friday as they won the day game 7-1. The night loss snapped a five game winning streak for the Braves.
Even in defeat though, Atlanta’s offense was excellent yet again. In the last six games the Braves have plated 51 runs led largely by Marcell Ozuna who is 12 for his last 29 with 4 HR and 3 doubles.
Atlanta might not need a whole lot of offense Saturday night with Max Fried on the hill. Washington does fare better vs. LH pitchers than RH lately, but Fried is shooting for a Cy Young Award with a 6-0 record and 1.60 ERA.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Nationals are 21-6 last 27 vs. LH starter
- Nationals are 1-4 last 5 Saturday games
- Nationals are 0-6 last six road games
- Braves are 49-22 last 71 home games
- Braves are 8-3 last 11 head to head meetings
Free Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Braves offense is clicking and the Nationals were in a huge rut before Friday night’s almost inexplicable win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Braves -1.5
Fried needs a big outing to keep up in the Cy Young race with Yu Darvish, who was spectacular Friday vs. the Cardinals.
