The Washington Nationals were seeing around 65% of the betting action in their game against the Atlanta Braves, a team that was coming in as the -123 favorite after opening as low as -113.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Nationals RH Tanner Roark (2-4, 3.17 ERA) vs. Braves LH Sean Newcomb (5-1, 2.75)

Roark beat the Braves on April 2 in his season debut, holding them to just one run on four hits with six strikeouts in seven innings to improve to 7-3 with a 2.77 ERA lifetime against Atlanta.  Roark is just 1-4 in over his last nine starts, however, despite limiting opponents to a .202 average.

Newcomb struggled in his last start Saturday at Boston, giving up three runs with four walks while throwing 88 pitches in just three innings in his first major league appearance near his hometown.  Otherwise, he’s been outstanding. In his first four starts he posted a 0.36 ERA and limited opponents to a .110 opponents batting average.  He did lose to Washington the last time facing them.

The Nationals enjoying wins of late has helped drive the public to them in this one.
