Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin

Justin Turner clubbed a go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday, powering the Dodgers to a 4-2 victory over the Nationals in Washington. The Dodgers put two men on with two outs against Tony Sipp in the eighth inning, then Turner greeted Kyle Barraclough with a towering three-run blast to center field to give the Dodgers the lead. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .295/.379/.484 with 15 long balls and 44 RBI on the season.

Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Joe Ross will officially start against the Dodgers on Saturday. That had been the expectation all along, but Nationals' manager Dave Martinez confirmed it after Friday's game. Ross pitched decently against the Braves his last time out, giving up three runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings. He isn't a recommended streaming option against a power-packed Dodgers' lineup.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 86-29 in Kershaw’s last 115 starts and are 38-16 in his last 54 outings on the road.

Washington

The Nationals have dropped four straight with Joe Ross on the hill, but are 16-7 in his last 23 outings at home.

Prediction:

The Dodgers are 14-3 in Kershaw’s lats 17 starts versus the Nationals and are 5-0 in his last five road outings against Washington. Los Angeles has also won eight of 10 overall versus Washington and is 4-0 in its last four games played at Nationals Park. That said, I see more value in the under this afternoon. In the last five meetings between these two teams, including last night, the under is 4-0-1. The under is also 7-3 in Kershaw’s last 10 starts coming off six days of rest and is 9-3 in the Nationals’ last 12 home games.

The Pick: Dodgers/Nationals UNDER 10
