1 unit on Washington -121 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.83) RESULT: WIN
The Washington Nationals came into the season odds on favorite to win it all. They haven't had the start they had hoped for at 28-24. They lost a tough one last night to the Cubs 2-1, with the Cubs' lone two runs coming on a bases loaded walk and a double play. Tsuyoshi Wada has pitched well for the Cubs, but has yet to record a win in his first three starts. The Nationals counter with Tanner Roark, who has been equally good, and he faced the Cubs earlier and limited them to one run on three hits in five innings. The Cubs are just 1-6 behind Wada in his last seven starts vs. a winning team, including 0-5 on the road in that same spot. Washington is built for left-handed pitching, and have dominated southpaws at home to the tune of a 59-28 record in their last 87 at home against one. Make the play on Washington.
