Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored on Saturday in the Nationals' win over the Reds. Rendon singled twice, and the three-reach day improves his slash to .321/.426/.648 over 44 games and 159 at-bats. Rendon is one of the top fantasy options at third base, and his fantasy value could improve if/when the Nationals decide to trade the pending free agent this summer. Even if he stays in Washington, the fantasy relevance is obvious.

Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Eugenio Suarez is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday. It looks to be a routine day off. Josh VanMeter will handle third base.

MLB Betting Trends


The Nationals are 1-8 in Scherzer’s last nine starts.


The Reds have won four of Gray’s last five outings at home.


The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams, which includes yesterday’s 5-2 final. The under is also 7-3-1 in Scherzer’s last 11 starts when he pitches the third game of a series and is 3-0-1 in Gray’s last four outings after the Reds allowed five runs or more in their previous game.

The Pick: Nationals/Reds under 8.5
