Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals 4/1/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals in MLB action in Nationals Park, DC, on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at 4:05 PM ET.


With a victory on Opening Day in Washington, DC, the Atlanta Braves extended their recent domination against the Nationals.


In his position as the designated hitter, Travis d’Arnaud led the way with four hits, including a two-run double in the ninth inning that gave the Braves a comfortable lead in their 7-2 victory.


The defending NL East champs’ day wasn’t flawless, though, as NL Cy Young runner-up Max Fried had to depart the game due to a torn left hamstring he sustained while attempting to cover first base on a ground out.


Fried is most likely going to miss his upcoming game and be on the 10-day injury list.


In game two of the series, the Braves will send the ball to right-handed fireballer Strider. After going 11-5 in 31 games, including 20 starts, Strider came in second in the vote for Rookie of the Year the previous season.


In just 131.2 innings, Strider managed to strike out 202 opponents while only walking 45 times and giving up 86 hits.


In two appearances against the Nationals last year, Strider has a 5.54 earned run average (ERA), giving up eight hits in 13 innings while striking out 18 hitters.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Atlanta’s last 6 matches.
  • The Atlanta Braves are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The Braves are 14-3 SU in their last 17 matches against Washington.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals Predictions 4/1/2023


The Washington Nationals‘ 2023 season began with a loss, just like it did for the majority of last year’s campaign.


Three unearned runs were scored as a result of Washington’s poor defense, specifically the three mistakes made by shortstop JJ Abrams.


The defeat was suffered by Washington starter Patrick Corbin, something the left-hander grew used to over the last two seasons. With 35 defeats over the past two seasons, Corbin has the most in the major leagues. 


Righty Gray, a powerful thrower, will now be used by Washington to even the series at one game each on Saturday. Gray had a 7-10 record with a 5.04 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 148.2 innings pitched last year.


Last year, Gray dominated Atlanta, finishing 1-0 with an ERA of only 0.82 in 11 innings pitched. In his two outings against the Braves, Gray gave up only three hits while striking out seven and walking five.


Gray’s record for the month of April in his career is 2-2 in four starts, with a 4.05 ERA. Gray pitched 20 innings in April and struck out 28 hitters.


  • The total went OVER in 6 of Washington’s last 7 matches.
  • The Washington Nationals are 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Washington’s last 7 matches against Atlanta.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves.


The sole consolation for the Nationals in their first game against the dominant Braves is that the weather may make the Braves’ offense less effective.


Atlanta defeated the Nationals 14-5 last season, including nine consecutive victories at one point. Even more astonishing, in those 19 games, the Braves lineup pounded up 42 home runs against the Nationals’ pitching staff.


The Braves’ bats will probably get back in shape and show off their might against the Nationals’ pitching staff.


In this game against the Nationals, it is predicted that there will be numerous home runs for the Braves and a rout. The Atlanta Braves will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
