1 unit on Washington PICK runs +148 (runline) (risk 1 to return 1)  RESULT: LOSS

The Nationals have proven one thing for sure this season. That is that they are capable of prolonged slumps and losing streaks. The other thing they have proven is once they break them, they tend to play over their heads for a bit. They dropped four in a row and came back with two wins. They lost six in a row and came back to win two of their next three. They went on a nine-game losing streak, but came back to win four straight and six of seven. They are now off a merciless 12-game losing streak and have won back-to-back games, including blitzing the Cubs yesterday. This team has actually been at their best when least expected as they have won six games and lost just seven as a +200 dog or higher. That number gets turned positive when you consider them on the +1.5 runline where they have cashed over 50%. Here we are getting three-to-two odds, so the value lies on the Nats runline here.
