Washington Nationals vs. Cleveland Indians – 9/27/19 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

2019-09-27 18:05:00 EDT

The Cleveland Indians and the Washington Nationals will match up on the MLB diamond Friday.

Cleveland is coming out of a set against the White Sox this week. After splitting the first pair of games in that series, on Thursday the Indians lost 8-0.

For the Friday game, Cleveland will send out Zach Plesac in the start. Across 110.2 innings and an 8-6 mark so far, Plesac has a 3.82 ERA with 82 Ks and 39 BBs.

Over on the Nationals’ side, they’re fresh off a set versus the Phillies. Washington took the first three games of that series 4-1, 6-5 and 5-2, then on Thursday the Nats won 6-3.

For Friday’s game, Washington will go with Austin Voth. Voth is 1-1 with a 3.35 ERA and 39 Ks this year.

The Indians are 7-2 in their last nine Friday games and 24-8 in their last 32 in game one of a series. Cleveland is 9-4 in Plesac’s last 13 starts and 9-3 in his last 12 on grass.

Meanwhile, the Nationals are 2-5 in their last seven in game one of a series and 4-1 in their last five versus the AL Central. The under is 4-1-2 in Washington’s last seven in game one of a series as well.

Outside of his complete-game shutout in LA (four hits) on September 10, Plesac has been pretty sketchy over his last four. In those other three starts, he’s given up 14 earned runs over a period of 14.1 innings and is 0-2.

This is a tough call but I’m not sure I trust Plesac at the moment. I’m going with the Nationals.
