Matchup/League Facts

The Atlanta Braves rank 1st in the league for runs scored this season (890).

Randy’s Pick

The Braves are too good of a team to continue to let these losses pile up, and Charlie Morton is usually trustworthy with a 3.66 ERA on the season. The Nationals look like they’ve run out of gas in terms of playing spoiler, and they’re just not a team you want to back when going up against the best team in the sport. Patrick Corbin has been terrible over the last 3 or 4 years and this year is no different with a 5.00 ERA. Give me the Braves and the RL for max betting value.
