MLB Betting Trends

Washington

The Nationals are 4-1in their last five road games. Washington is 4-1 in its last five Sunday games. 

Detroit

The Tigers are 18-38 in their last 56 interleague games. Detroit is 0-5 in its last five Sunday games. 

Prediction:

Just look at the pitching matchup. I don't even think the Nationals bullpen can screw this one up. Probably go with the runline here, but in a battle of two pitchers going against their former team it's a pretty lopsided affair here.
