2 units on Washington +180 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Nats are so typical of a young impressionable team. They start losing and the confidence goes down the toilet. That is witnessed by losing streaks of six, nine and 12 games as well as four in a row three times. The upside is that it breeds the same confidence when they start winning. The Nats have had stretches of 3-0, 6-1, 6-1, and finally their current hot streak of seven straight and nine of 11 - their best run of the season. The Phillies have dropped four of six, and now struggling some at the plate. John Lannon has been the best and most consistent pitcher the Nats can throw out there. His ERA has been in the 3's since May 2, and 15 of those 20 starts have resulted in three runs or less. Cole Hammels has pitched great for the Phillies, but it has not shown up in the win column as the Phil's are just 8-9 in his last 17 starts, and 3-5 on the road. The hot Nats getting a bigger line than the way they are playing, so we'll grab the value here.
