As MLB fans, we should expect much more as the season progresses. Our experts have spent the last few days looking at these stats to prepare the MLB tip for the week. Keep scrolling!

This week, we'll be looking at two very famous MLB teams, the Braves and the Nationals, who are set to face each other on Sunday, 15. The match will be played at the Nationals Park (home to the Nationals) in Washington, D.C.

These two teams have been performing very differently in the MLB this season. The Braves are at position 16 with a PCT of 0.513, while the Nationals are at position 24 with a PCT of 0.435.

The Nationals hoping to end their losing streak

The Nationals will go into this clash after suffering three consecutive defeats in five days. This clearly explains why they rank just five positions above the Diamondbacks, who are at the bottom of the table. Looking at the previous ten games they have played, they have managed to come out with only one win.

Let's now shift our focus to the totals. Still analyzing the ten previous games, eight have been overs (8.5); five have ended with the Nationals losing by a margin of two or more runs. The only win they had was against the Atlanta Braves, which ended 2 - 3 in their favour.

The Braves hoping to regain their form after a recent loss

The Braves will be aiming to recover from a recent loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds in a match that ended 3 - 12. Before that, the team had displayed an incredible record of seven wins from nine games. Generally, they have 59 wins from 115 matches.

Out of their ten most recent games, they have seven wins. Six of those ten games ended as over 8.5. If we look at the run spread, six of these ten games ended with one team winning/losing by a margin of two or more runs.

The Nationals vs vs the Braves H2H

We'll now look at the stats between these teams in 2021 (Since April). The Braves and the Nationals have faced each other 13 times in 2021, with the Braves winning nine times. Only five games ended as over 8.5. However, eight of these games ended with one team losing/winning by two or more runs.

Our Betting Tip for Today

In the last few weeks, we've seen how unpredictable the season can be. So we can't completely rule out the possibility of the Nationals putting in a fierce fight. However, from what we already have on the table, the Braves are by far the better team; hence we'll tip them for a win in this game.

Suppose you want to add a little more spice to your bet. You can add a total of over 9.5 to the bet.

Our choice: Braves to win| Total + 9.5

We looked at a couple of things before we tipped the Braves to win & over 9.5. Some of them include:

  1. Eight of the last ten games that have played have ended in over 8.5.
  2. Six of the last ten games that the Braves have played have ended in over 8.5.
  3. The Braves have won nine of their previous 13 meetings with the Nationals.
  4. The Braves have won seven of their previous 10 MLB games, while the Nationals have only won once in their last 10 MLB games.

To make the tip even better, we found that BetMGM offers fantastic odds for this game. A Braves win has odds of -140. Adding an over 9.5 (that has odds of -105) translates to cumulative odds of 233.
