Washington Nationals Betting Preview

The Nationals look to play spoiler after losing 4 of their last 5 games. The Nationals are 8 games back in the wild card race. The Nationals pitching staff is 27th in ERA (4.89), 27th in WHIP (1.45) and 19th in quality starts (44). The Nationals’ offense is 21st in runs per game (4.33), 9th in batting average (.257) and 29th in homers (121). Lane Thomas leads the Nationals with 146 hits and 69 RBI, while Joey Meneses and Dominic Smith have combined for 260 hits and 111 RBI. Jake Irvin gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 4.30 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Irvin is 0-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 7 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

Washington Nationals Team Facts

  • The Nationals have won seven of their last eight games at Nationals Park following a loss.
  • The road team has covered the run line in each of the last six games between the Marlins and Nationals.
  • The Nationals have led after 5 innings in five of their last seven games as underdogs against National League opponents.
  • The ‘Inning 1 OVER 0.5 runs’ market has hit in each of the last three night games between the Marlins and Nationals.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Washington Nationals ranks 30th in the league for home runs allowed this season (204).
  • The Washington Nationals ranks 29th in the league for home runs this season (121).
  • The Miami Marlins ranks 28th in the league for RBI’s this season (507).
  • The Miami Marlins ranks 28th in the league for walks this season (341).

Randy’s Pick

The Marlins need to take advantage of this series if they’re going to remain in the wild card race, and Eury Perez is a stud rookie. Through 74 innings, Perez has a 2.68 ERA and 1.04 WHIP, with 90 strikeouts. Jake Irvin has allowed just 1 run in his last 12 innings, and he’s won 8 of his last 11 starts, but the Nats offense has been quiet this week and that’s likely not going to change against Perez, who has simply filthy stuff. Must win game for the Marlins. I’ll lay the juice with the road team.
