Total: 10.50 | -116.00 Over
The Braves are tearing the cover off the ball right now. ATL came from behind to win 7-6 last night and I think an even bigger combined score is in the cards for Friday's contest. And that's because a couple of confirmed "gas cans" are squaring off against each other. The Braves Josh Tomlin has actually been decent, as he's 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA. It's interesting to note thought that ATL has had 25 games in which its starter has completed four or fewer innings. The Nats counter with Erick Fedde, who is 1-3 with a 5.29 ERA and who is 0-1 with a 17.36 ERA in three career appearances vs. the Braves. And note that ATL has seen the total go over the number in eight of its last 11 after scoring 7 or more runs in its previous outing, while also winning by a single run. This number is low, expect another slug-fest!
T.M. Prediction: 9-7 Atlanta.
