(The Spread) – Are the Washington Nationals a contender or a pretender? If odds have anything to say about the situation, the Nats are for real.

According to oddsmakers the Nationals are now 10/13 favorites to win the National League East Division in 2012. The Atlanta Braves have the next best odds at 9/4 while the New York Mets are 15/2 to win the NL East and the Miami Marlins are 12/1. In a rather shocking first-half development, the last-place Philadelphia Phillies are also sitting at 12/1 to win the division this year.

The surprising Nationals are currently sitting in first place at 49-34 and own a four-game lead over the Braves, who are 46-39. The Mets are also off to a surprising start, as they’re 46-40 and are 4.5 games back of Washington in the NL East. The two teams that are surprising in a much different way are the Marlins (41-44, 9 games back) and the Phillies, who are 14 games back at the break and 13 games under .500 at 37-50.
