Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves Prediction

This Game is going to be a low scoring Game. Gore sits with an ERA of 3.57 and he’s going to find a way to bounce back. Morton in his last start went six innings giving up only one hit and zero runs and that success is going to continue here. Both offenses are going to struggle to get going here, and that will be the difference here as this Game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here.
