Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Yan Gomes exited Monday's game against the Brewers with a left forearm contusion. Gomes initially remained in the game after being hit by a Jhoulys Chacin pitch, but he eventually had to come out. The Nationals should have more on his status after the game. It's a team that can't afford any more injuries.

Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Adrian Houser will start for the Brewers on Tuesday versus the Nationals, with Freddy Peralta expected to follow him in relief. Peralta has been mostly terrible this season but has been especially bad in the first inning with 15 runs allowed over five frames. Houser isn't your traditional opener since he's a starter by trade, so it's possible he'll go multiple innings before handing things over to Peralta.

MLB Betting Trends

Washington

The Nationals are 40-11 in Strasburg’s last 51 starts coming off four days of rest.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 6-2 in their last eight games overall.

Prediction:

The Nationals have won 70 of Strasburg’s last 96 starts and are 41-12 in his last 53 road outings. They’re also 44-17 in his last 61 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance and are 28-11 in his last 39 outings versus a team with a winning record. With the Nationals are extremely banged up, they did hold a one-run lead in the later innings on Monday night before their bullpen blew it in a 5-3 loss. At this price and with Strasburg on the mound, the Nationals are worth a roll of the dice.

The Pick: Washington Nationals -102
