The Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Nationals Park. 

The Braves sit with a 53-37 record overall but they lost two of the three games against the New York Mets in the last series. The pitching struggled on Wednesday giving up seven runs and that led to the defeat. The Braves offense has been strong averaging 4.71 runs per game which is 5th in the league. Austin Riley is having a big season for the Braves hitting 25 home runs and driving in 58 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nationals who sit with a 30-60 record overall and have lost six games in a row. Three of those losses were against the Braves. The Nationals' offense has been a big issue this season averaging 3.84 runs per game which is 27th in the league. Josh Bell is having a big season hitting 12 home runs and driving in 47 RBIs so far this season.

The Braves send Kyle Wright to the mound and he sits with a 10-4 record and an ERA of 2.97. In his last start against the Nationals, he went seven innings giving up eight hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Nationals will be Anibal Sanchez who is set to make his season debut in this game. 

The Braves are 4-0 in Wright’s last four starts. The Nationals are 1-4 in Sanchez’s last five starts during Game 1 of a series. The under is 10-2 in the Braves last 12 games on grass. The over is 5-1 in the Nationals' last six home games against a team with a winning road record. 

Sanchez is making his first of the season and he isn’t the same pitcher that he once was. Wright has been strong this season, and he currently sits with an ERA of 2.97. I expect the Braves offense to get over their average of 4.71 runs here in this game, and that is going to lead to the Braves getting the job done. Back the Braves -1.5 to cash.
