Washington are 10-2 in their last 12 overall and are 10-2 in their last 12 games on grass and under is 34-16-6 in Washington last 56 road games. Under is 15-4-2 in Arizona last 21 home games and under is 6-2-1 in Arizona last 9 overall and under is 6-2-1 in Arizona last 9 on grass.
I think most people will be on the Diamondbacks but I believe Hellickson is capable and has been throwing better then Godley…
