Nationals vs. Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. It’s an ugly price but that’s to be expected with Washington sending out a rookie making his debut against one of the most potent lineups in baseball with arguably the best pitcher in the game this season going with how electric Glasnow’s been through his first three starts. The loss for the Dodgers stung on Sunday night, but I think Los Angeles bounces back at home behind another strong outing from Glasnow. Give me the Dodgers big here.
