2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
August 18, 2010
Washington at Atlanta
Wednesday 08/18 07:10 PM Eastern
3 units on Atlanta -1.5 runs -110 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Washington Nationals started the season like a team that was turning the corner as they closed mid- May over .500. They have been 31-56 since and are looking like the poor team they have been for years. They have been playing poorly of late and each of their last six losses have been knockout blows as they lost all six by at least four runs, and 11 of their last 12 losses have been by at least two runs. Atlanta is dominating at home more than any team in baseball with a 43-16 mark for the year. Tim Hudson has been reborn and pitching better than ever with an 0.40 ERA in his last five starts. The Braves are 5-1 at home against the Nats behind Hudson. I like Atlanta on the runline here.
