Braves Looking for Consistency

The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals meet at Nationals Park on Monday night. The way both starters have been throwing lately, this should be a great pitching matchup.

The Braves will give the ball to starter Mike Foltynewicz in this one. Right hander Foltynewicz is 4-5 this season with a 3.48 ERA. Folty is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts against Washington in his career. He has gone 14 scoreless innings in his last two starts. He has improved with better fastball control as the season has matured. On Wednesday he fired seven scoreless innings in a 14-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Starting this game for the Nationals will be Stephen Strasburg. The right hander has a 2.80 ERA to go along with a 7-2 record this season. Strasburg has been stellar in recent outings against the new-look Braves. That was not the case earlier in his career.The former No. 1 overall draft choice is 6-1 with a 2.68 ERA in eight starts against the Braves since the start of the 2015 season.

Before that, he was only 4-7 with a 4.24 ERA from 2010 to 2014 vs. Atlanta.

Nationals Just got Swept by Rangers

Oddsmakers opened the Nationals as -230-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total opened at 8.5.

The Nationals were a 5-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Texas Rangers. That made winners of bettors who got Texas at 231 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for UNDER bettors. They were swept in all three games against the Rangers.

In their last action, Atlanta was a 2-1 loser on the road against the New York Mets. Bettors on New York at 127 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
