Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves 4/13/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Washington Nationals will meet with the Atlanta Braves in MLB action in Truist Park, GA, on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at 12:20 PM ET. The Washington Nationals did not have the year they hoped for in 2021, but they will give it their all against the defending World Champions.

 

The Nationals are not terrible on offense to start the season, but they’ll need to continue to improve if they want to contend in the NL East in 2022. They are hitting .215 as a squad and scoring 3.80 runs per game. This is the league’s 18th worst batting average.

 

The Nationals struggled to get their bats on the ball and drive in runs. They can get on base, but they’re leaving a lot of runners on the field. They are also fairly unaggressive until they reach the base routes. They did not steal a base yet this season, which puts them in a tie for 23rd place in the league.

 

Other teams are unaggressive as well, but I believe the Nationals will be more successful if they have more men in scoring positions. Washington also failed to hit home runs to start the season, managing only .80 home runs per game, which ranks them 17th in the MLB.

 

  • The Washington Nationals are 2-3 in their last 5 matches.
  • Washington is 1-0 in their road matches against the spread
  • The total went Over in 6-0-1 of the Nationals’ last 7 road matches with the total set at 7.0-8.5.

Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 4/13/2022

 

The Atlanta Braves did not get off to the best start in franchise history. The Braves won the World Series in 2021 and want to get back to performing as they did at the close of last season.

 

The Braves are averaging 3.40 runs per match and hitting .201 as a squad on the offensive side of the field. Because they aren’t seeing the ball well right now, they have the 26th lowest team batting average.

 

If the Braves want to contend in the NL East this season, they must improve their offensive performance. They’re also hitting only .60 home runs per game. Atlanta’s bats aren’t producing much power right now, so the middle of the order needs to step up and start knocking in runs.

 

In the 2022 season, the Braves also failed to steal a base. The Braves are exceedingly passive on the base paths, they have the 25th fewest stolen bases in the league.

 

The Braves struggled on the defensive side of the field to begin the season. They’re surrendering 6.00 runs per game, which is the 28th-highest rate in the MLB this season. They’re not keeping opposing batters off the base paths, and they’re giving up big hits at inopportune moments.

 

The Braves starting pitching isn’t where they want it to be, either. They only had one good start this season since their starters were yanked before the game began.

 

  • The Atlanta Braves are 2-3 in their previous 5 matches.
  • Atlanta is 0-5 in their last 5 matches against the spread
  • The total went Under in 6-0 of the Braves’ last 6 during matches 3 of a series.

Washington Nationals vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Washington Nationals. In this match, I’ll be riding with the Washington Nationals. On the road, they’ll be able to keep it tight and cover the run line spread (+1.5).

 

The Braves are now one of the weakest offensive teams in baseball, and their defense isn’t much better. The Braves have the 26th-lowest team batting average in baseball, and they score the 28th-fewest runs per game. Josiah Gray will be able to hold the Braves at bay in the first half of the match, allowing the Nationals to keep the game close.

 

On the offensive side of the field, Washington isn’t much better, but they’re still outperforming the Braves. They’re also a superior defensive squad than the Nationals, surrendering two fewer runs per game.

 

Max Fried also lost my trust after being destroyed in his first start. He has a 7.94 ERA, and the Nationals will get to work right away. Washington will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
