Miami at Washington

1.5 units on Washington -205 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.23) RESULT: WIN
Miami has a terrible road record and has nothing to play for. Miami comes off a 5-4 loss yesterday and this is their sixth straight road contest. The Marlins are 8-17 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Marlins are 1-4 in the last five starts made by lefty Justin Nicolino. He doesn't get any help from an offense that is awful, #29 in baseball in runs scored and #25 in on-base percentage. The Washington Nationals have won five of six to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Washington is #7 in baseball in runs scored and on-base percentage, plus 20-9 at home against a left-handed starter. The Nationals have Jordan Zimmermann (12-8, 3.51 ERA) going, with a 7-3 mark at home and a 2.47 ERA. The Nationals are 50-23 at home against a team with a losing record, plus 44-16 in Zimmermann's last 60 home starts. Miami is just 7-20 at Washington, 4-11 against Zimmermann, including 1-7 when Zimmermann starts at home against them. Take Washington.
