The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves have been forced to play a doubleheader Tuesday due to Monday’s tragic shooting at a D.C. navy yard which neighbors Nationals Park.
There have been 23 doubleheaders so far this baseball season, with the first game producing a collective 12-10-1 over/under mark and the second installment going 10-12-1 over/under on the year. However, there are some notable trends in recent double-dips that will peak the interest of those sizing up Tuesday’s totals.
There has been a definitive over/under split between Game 1 and Game 2 all season. In the first 13 doubleheaders of the season (April 16 – June 18), the first games posted a 5-7-1 O/U count while the second went 9-3-1 O/U.
In the last 10 MLB doubleheaders (June 19 –September 14), Game 1 has generated a 7-3 O/U record while Game 2 has gone a collective 1-9 O/U.
The Braves (68-73 O/U) and Nationals (75-68 O/U) have played under the total in eight of their past 11 meetings heading into Tuesday’s doubleheader.
Oddsmakers have yet to post Tuesday’s totals for the doubleheader.
