Today’s best bet: WASHINGTON NATIONALS (-130) over Atlanta Braves
Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (7-1, 2.04 ERA) has been one of the most reliable starters in the majors. Gonzalez, who beat the Braves 7-2 in Atlanta a week ago, is 3-0 in four home starts while limiting opponents to four earned runs in 28 innings. The Braves, who will start right-hander Tommy Hanson, have lost nine of their past 11 games.
