Twins fall in finale

MLB Betting Trends

Washington

The Nationals are 4-0 in the last four Sanchez road starts. Washington is 7-3 in its last 10 Tuesday games. 

Minnesota

The Twins are 4-0 in their last four Tuesday games. Minnesota is 1-4 in its last five interleague home games.

Prediction:

Berrios has really been struggling lately and I'm not sure if I'm ready to put my trust in him right now. As for Sanchez, he's been a reliable arm at the back end of the Nats rotation. With Washington looking to lock down its NL Wild Card spot over the next few weeks, I'm going to say it opens this series with a nice statement victory on the road.
