Miami at Washington

1 unit on Washington -1.5 runs -115 (runline) (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: LOSS
The Miami Marlins playoffs hopes ended a long time ago. The Washington Nationals, projected as the best team in baseball, have fallen well short of expectations, and have a lot of work to do to make the playoffs. For the Nats it must start here against a weak Miami team, and with ax Scherzer on the mound it certainly gives them an opportunity to strike first in game one of this series. Scherzer has topped the 200 strikeout mark in his last start, while walking just 26. Scherzer has already beaten the Marlins twice this season, the last a 7 inning 0 run gem. Marlins are 19-62 in their last 81 games as a dog from -201 and higher, and have held a negative 11.8% return on the runline as a dog of 200+. Take Washington on the runline.
