MLB Early Bird Special *7-1 Last 8 Plays!*
Washington Nationals (12-23) at Atlanta Braves (22-14)

*3 Star Play Over* Austin Voth enters this game with a ridiculous 14.90 ERA in his last three starts. He has a 7.79 FIP in those starts. Voth has allowed 16 runs in his last 9 and 2/3 innings pitched. He goes up against an Atlanta offense today that is 3rd in the majors in weighted on base average against right handed pitching. In his last start against Atlanta he allowed 9 hits and 5 runs in only 4 innings pitched.
Tommy Milone starts here for the Atlanta Braves. Milone has a 7.90 ERA and a 7.09 FIP in his last three starts. He clearly comes into this one in very bad form as well. Washington hasn't hit right handers well this year, but they have torched lefties like Milone. Washington is second in the majors with a .374 wOBA against left handed pitching.
This is a 7 inning contest which is why the total is lower than you would expect with these pitchers and lineups.
The weather here is 90 degrees and wind blowing out 8-10 mph. That helps the over as well.
Look for both starters to struggle.
Take the over.
