3 units on New York -155 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
One thing about Washington is that they have their moments during the course of the season where they string some surprises together, but when they go bad, they really go bad. They are bad right now. The Nats are in the doldrums of a seven-game losing streak. Once the losing starts with this team it seems endless. Their latest losing skid has reached nine-games, and they've reached a nine-game losing streak earlier in the season as well. That leaves the Nats 0-12 in their last 12 games against teams with a winning record and 9-33 in their last 42. So we look at the odds posted here at 1.5 to 1 and salivate as the reality is they have cashed about one in four in this type of matchup. The reality is that as the season has gone on, even less than that. The Mets for the road win.
