Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals 7/17/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Atlanta Braves will meet with the Washington Nationals in MLB action in Nationals Park, DC, on Sunday, July 17, 2022, at 1:35 PM ET.


On Friday, the Atlanta Braves defeated the Nationals to win their eighth consecutive matchup. After five innings, the Braves were up 6-0 and coasting, while the Nationals added three meaningless runs in the bottom of the ninth.


Austin Riley, Adam Duvall, and Orland Arcia all hit home runs in the triumph. Riley currently ranks in the top 10 in MLB with 26 home runs and 60 RBI, leading the Braves.


Since June 1, the Braves went 32-10, outscoring every other club by 3.5 games. The Braves, who were two games back of the Mets going into Saturday’s play, had the best record of any team in MLB’s second-place position.


On Sunday, rookie Spencer Strider (4-2, 2.56 ERA) will get the ball. In just 72 2/3 innings this year, he struck out 111 hitters. Additionally, he pitched on the road nine times and has a 2.01 ERA.


In two games versus Washington, he’s 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA. With +12 defensive runs saved this year, the Braves are ranked 14th, and their bullpen ranks fourth with a 3.10 ERA.


  • The total went UNDER in 11 of Atlanta’s last 15 matches. 
  • The Braves are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches. 
  • Atlanta is 9-0 SU in their last 9 matches against Washington.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals Predictions 7/17/2022


On Friday, the Washington Nationals fell for the 13th time in their previous 14 games, making it their eighth straight loss overall.


The fact that five of the previous 9 losses were only by one run is a silver lining. Because there are contenders who might utilize the services of Josh Bell (13 HR, 48 RBI) and Nelson Cruz, expect the Nationals to be sellers at the trade deadline (8 HR, 48 RBI).


Juan Soto (19 HR, 42 RBI) could potentially be available right now. The second half of the season in the nation’s capital may even be worse if that takes place.


The Nationals now have the fourth-worst record in MLB overall and are 14-35 at home this year. With a team batting average of.249, they are seventh in MLB, but they are 27th in terms of scoring 3.8 runs per game and hitting 72 home runs.


They rank 30th on the field with -42 defensive runs saved for the year. The pitching staff’s 5.13 ERA and 1.47 WHIP place it in 29th place.


  • The Nationals are 0-9 SU in their previous 9 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 12 of Washington’s last 17 matches against Atlanta. 
  • Washington is 0-10 SU in their last 10 matches at home.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. I don’t care who the Nationals open with on Sunday because I don’t know.


Since Washington is just 13-44 in their previous 57 matches versus teams with winning records, this club is a fad until they start winning again (since they can’t keep losing forever).


Washington’s pitching and defense are both atrocious, and its top offensive talent doesn’t even want to sign a $440 million contract.


In addition, Spencer Strider, who made four appearances with an ERA of 0.79, will be beginning for them. For the Braves to defeat the Nationals, take the runline. The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 5-1.
