2 units on Colorado +131 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

We aren’t sure if you could ever find any value on a team that has dropped eight straight games, especially as a favorite. We sure don't see any, in fact quite the opposite. The Rockies have been the worst team in baseball against right-handed pitching where they are a dreadful 35-54, or winning just 39% of their games. That isn't what they will be facing tonight. The Rockies will see a lefthander in John Lannan, and that adds some charm to this pick as the Rockies are a much different team against southpaws, carrying a 20-15 mark into this one or winning 57% of their games. Lannan has pitched well, but with a bullpen that implodes on a regular basis and one that has allowed 50 runs in his 23 starts, the wins haven't come easy. The Nats are just 6-17 in his 23 starts and more recently they are 2-12. We'll take the value on the visiting Rockies as a dog in this game.
