Brewers vs. Nationals Prediction
Will the under cash tonight at 7:05PM ET in Washington where the Nationals will host the Brewers?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Nationals are -140 money line favorites versus the Brewers, who have odds of +130 to pull off the upset in Washington. With Gio Gonzalez set to face Jimmy Nelson in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 9 runs.
From Rotoworld: Nelson gave up four runs over five innings to take a loss to the Pirates on Thursday. Even Nelson’s bad starts haven’t been that bad; he hasn’t allowed more than four runs in a game since April. He struck out five and walked one today, and he’s now 8-5 with a 3.43 ERA overall.
Gonzalez lost after allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Angels. A rare rough outing for Gonzalez this year. In fact, it’s the first time he’s given up four runs since May 19 and just the third time in 20 starts total. He’s now lost four of his last five outings, but that’s a lot more about run support than anything he’s done wrong. The potent Nationals offense just hasn’t been as kind to him as it has to the rest of the team’s starters.
OUR PREDICTION: The total has gone under in nine of the Brewers’ last 10 games on the road and has cashed in nine of Milwaukee’s last 10 games overall. On the other side, the under has hit in six of Washington’s last seven games and is 4-1 in the last five games between the Nationals and Brewers.
WEDNESDAY MLB PREDICTION: BREWERS/NATIONALS UNDER 9
