MLB Picks and Predictions for this Tuesday Night baseball game between the Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves.
Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves:
This Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves game starts this Tuesday Night September 20, 2022 at 7:20pm et at Truist Park in Atlanta.
The latest MLB odds have the Braves listed as the huge moneyline favorite at the -315 price and on the runline at -155. The over/under is at 8.5 total runs.
The Washington Nationals come into this game at the bottom of the NL East with a 51-96 record. They currently have the fourth worst road record in the majors at 27-46 overall.
The Natiionals have one of the worst pitchers in the league right now, Patrick Corbin taking the mound for this game. In 29 starts this season Patrick Corbin has a 6-18 record with a 6.11 ERA of 6.11 and 124 strikeouts.
Corbin has a 6-10 record with a 4.30 ERA in his 20 careers starts against the Braves.
In his last start on Wednesday Night against the Baltimore Orioles he was finally impressive. He gave up only four hits and one earned run over 6 innings.
Designated Hitter and Rightfielder Nelson Cruz sat out this whole week so far due to blurred vision in his left eye and we don’t see he returning to the lineup for this Tuesday night game.
Washington is 1-9 straight up in their last 10 games against Atlanta and are 1-6 straight up in their last 7 games on the road.
The Atlanta Braves come into this game 92-55 overall and a 51-26 home record this season. They sit just one game back from taking over that top spot in the NL East. They’ll play their last 15 regular season games against the Nationals, Phillies, Mets, and the Marlins. Ten of the 15 games will be on the road, so it’s going to be very interesting to watch how it’ll play out for them.
I have faith in them and a fan, so yesterday, I threw an extra 10-Units on the futures bet for the Atlanta Braves to win the National League East at the +175 odds. So if you also like that future move, then now is the time to sprinkle a little bit of action on it.
Atlanta will have their veteran right hander Charlie Morton get the start for this matchup. Charlie Morton has an 8-6 record with an ERA of 4.17 and 187 strikeouts in his 28 starts this season.
In his 14 career starts against the Nationals, Morton has a 5-6 record with a 4.98 ERA and 59 strikeouts. Morton gave up four hits and four earned runs in 5 innings in his last start on Wednesday against the San Francisco Giants.
Over the weekend, unfortunately the Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies fractured his right pinky finger. Reports say that he’ll most likely be out for the remainder of the regular season.
Remember that he just returned on Friday from missing three months with that fractured foot. They should be in good hands though with the Rookie Vaughn Grissom taking over Albies duties moving forward.
The Braves are 8-0 straight up in their last 8 games at home and the total has gone over in 13 of Atlanta’s last 18 games against Washington.
