San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals Prediction

I’m not excited to lay juice with Adam Mazur and how shaky he’s looked through 4 MLB starts, but the price isn’t crazy, and the Padres are playing some of their best ball of the season. MacKenzie Gore has been solid, but he’s had many games where he hasn’t gotten run support, and he has been hit a lot this month. I’ve been a harsh critic of the Padres over the years due to underachieving, but they’re having a nice couple of weeks. I’ll side with the cheap price and the Padres to keep things rolling.
