Why Bet The Braves-Nationals Series

By all means look for scenarios where there should be plenty of scoring and take the OVER.

The Nationals have won four straight and share first place in the tepid National League East after getting off to a slow start, some of which was the result of Covid forcing players to be sidelined.

"Our starting pitchers are pitching deeper into games, our bullpen's been really good and we're getting timely hitting," manager Dave Martinez said Sunday. "It's all coming together. We always talk about how we missed some guys early in the season. Now they're starting to play together, we're starting to feel this real good togetherness, this unity. I think it's starting to click."

Washington is tied for the National League lead in hitting (.253) and is seventh in on-base percentage (.319), yet another reason why the OVER can be tempting.

The Braves are hitting .238 as a team (ninth in the NL), but their pitchers are sporting an MLB-worst 5.06 ERA and had allowed 42 home runs, also worst in the majors.

Tuesday's game features a total of 9.

Right-hander Joe Ross (2-1, 4.64) makes his first start against the Braves since 2019. In his last start, April 24 against the Mets, he threw six innings of one-run ball.

Huascar Ynoa (2-1, 2.96) starts for the Braves.  Marcell Ozuna homered in a four-run first inning, Ynoa pitched 5 1/3 strong innings and the Atlanta Braves went deep five times to beat the Chicago Cubs 10-0 in Ynoa's last start.

Previous to that game, Ynoa won for the first time as a major leaguer after allowing two runs over six innings against the Diamondbacks.

The Braves also lost catcher and cleanup hitter Travis d'Arnaud to a torn ligament in his thumb Saturday.

Tuesday night's game goes OVER 9.
