The Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants meet in MLB action from Oracle Park on Tuesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


San Francisco is a -230 home favorite while Washington is a +195 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Washington will send out Patrick Corbin here who is 1-4 with a 5.17 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. San Francisco will counter with Logan Webb who is 2-5 with a 3.80 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Washington’s 5-1 win on Monday made it back-to-back wins for the Nationals in this head-to-head matchup against the Giants.


Washington is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 6-13 in their last 19 game two matchups while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a win. San Francisco is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 7-3 in their last 10 home games while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 games following a loss.


I’m backing the over here. Normally I love to fade Patrick Corbin, but Logan Webb hasn’t been good enough to back at this kind of price even if he is still technically San Francisco’s staff ace. Maybe that gives value to the Nationals in some way, shape or form, but I’m personally not in a position where I feel comfortable putting any of my hard-earned money on Patrick Corbin. I’ll side with the over here as I’m expecting runs early and often here.
