MLB Baseball Betting Odds:
The Nationals enter tonight’s contest sporting a 23-32 record that ranks them 4th overall in the NL East. At the present time the Philadelphia Phillies lead the division with a 32-22 record, placing Washington 9 ½ games behind them. With this in mind, it’s clear that Washington isn’t making a push for the No. 2 spot anytime soon. However, will Washington be able to turn their record around? All in all, the Nats have been far too inconsistent this season to seriously expect this out of them. Nevertheless, Anibal Sanchez is the man tasked with getting the win this evening. But since Sanchez enters this evening’s matchup with a 0-6 record as well as a 5.10 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP, it’s not looking too good for Washington.
Players to Watch: Adam Eaton (5 HR, 15 RBI, .270 BA), Victor Robles (8 HR, 20 RBI, .242 BA), and Brian Dozier (7 HR, 16 RBI, .205 BA).
The Braves tumble into tonight’s action flashing a 30-25 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the NL East. As aforementioned, the Phillies currently lead the division. Right now they own a 2 ½ game lead over Atlanta so their lead isn’t all that secure. However, Atlanta has lost two out of their last 3 and really needs to assert themselves this evening. Kevin Gausman is the one tasked with leading the charge this Wednesday night. He enters the contest with a 2-3 record as well as a 4.33 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Ozzie Albies (7 HR, 24 RBI, .263 BA), Freddie Freeman (13 HR, 32 RBI, .311 BA), and Ronald Acuna Jr. (11 HR, 31 RBI, .275 BA).
