Over/Under Total Pick:
Today’s starters combined to produce a fantastic pitchers’ duel 6 days ago in Washington with the Nationals ended up on the winning end 2-1. Washington starter Taylor Jordon gave up 1 run on 6 hits in 6 1/3 in his only start this season. The Braves ace south paw Alex Wood has been solid in his 2 starts this season pitching a combined 14 innings of 9 hit ball allowing only 3 runs. Hard to side with either team so we’ll look to both starters to continue their solid form, keeping this game under the posted total. Take Under 7 (+110).
