Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Gerardo Parra belted a go-ahead grand slam to propel the Nationals to a 5-2 comeback win over the Dodgers on Saturday. Parra couldn’t have picked a more clutch moment to come through with his first hit in a Nationals uniform, clubbing a grand slam into the right field seats in the eighth inning. The 32-year-old offers zero fantasy value outside of NL-Only formats. He's hitting .194 with two homers and a pair of steals in 105 plate appearances.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Justin Turner went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in the Dodgers’ loss to the Nationals on Saturday. Turner launched a 401-foot blast -- his sixth round-tripper of the season -- to right-center field off Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer in the third inning. The 34-year-old veteran has been on an absolute tear, going deep five times in his last three games. He’s one of the elite hitters in the game when he’s fully healthy. He owns a .298/.384/.461 triple-slash line with 19 runs scored and 21 RBI across 164 plate appearances.
MLB Betting Trends
The Nationals are just 2-5 in their last seven games despite taking two of the first three games in this series.
The Dodgers are a perfect 5-0 in their last five games following a loss.
I took the under in last night’s game and suffered a hard-luck push when Parra hit the grand slam in the Nationals’ five-run eighth. No matter – I’m going back to the well today. The under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams at Dodger Stadium and is 10-4-2 in the last 16 meetings overall. The under is also 21-8 in Stephen Strasburg’s last 29 road starts and is 22-6-1 in Ryu’s last 29 outings after the Dodgers scored two runs or fewer in their previous game.
The Pick: Nationals/Dodgers UNDER 7
