MLB Betting Trends


The Nationals are 4-13 in their last 17 road games. Washington is 8-3 in its last 11 Tuesday games.


The Brewers are 2-8 in their last 10 games overall. The under is 20-7 in Milwaukee's last 27 Tuesday games.


Washington has been dreadful on the road and generally has looked lethargic much of the season. Hellickson has been good on the mound, but did have an implosion at Miami so he certainly isn't perfect. Guerra has had a strong season and although there might be some regression coming, he should navigate through a Nats offense that has been more bark than bite on the road.
