The Washington Nationals are in first place in the NL East and they look to get this series off on the right foot. The Nationals are 27-25 on the road, 7-3 in their last 10 games, and they are coming off of a win in Cincinnati on Sunday. As a team the Nationals are hitting .251 with Denard Span hitting .288, Jayson Werth hitting .281, and Anthony Rendon hitting .279. The Washington pitching staff has an ERA of 3.07 with the starters at 3.28 and the bullpen at 2.63. For game one at Miami the Nationals start Jordan Zimmerman who has two no decisions and a loss in his last three starts. For the season Zimmerman has allowed 125 hits and 42 earned runs while striking out 107 over 118 innings for a 6-5 record and a 3.20 ERA.
Miami is 5-0 in their last five games, 3-8 in their last 11 home games, and 0-5 in Eovaldi’s last five starts. Washington is 4-1 against the NL East, 7-2 as a favorite, and 46-22 in Zimmerman’s last 68 starts. Washington has won four of their last five games in Miami.
The total is set at 7.5 and while this looks to be about right I liek the under here. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
