1.5 units on Colorado +140 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.6) RESULT: LOSS
Washington is a long way from home with a losing road mark. Washington has been in a slump, winning yesterday but the victory was just the fifth in 18 games for the Nationals, who stand 4.5 games behind the Mets. The Nationals are on a 1-6 run, and 0-5 following a win. Washington is 2-5 when Stephen Strasburg faces a team with a losing record, plus the team is just 1-5 when he gets five days of rest. He faces a Colorado offense that is seventh in baseball in runs scored. Starter Jorge De La Rosa (7-5) throws best at home and the Rockies are 8-2 in his last 10 starts as a home underdog. De La Rosa is also 5-2 in nine career starts against Washington. This is a tough park to pitch in, and with the Rockies 53-14 when De La Rosa starts at home, jump on the home dog and play on Colorado.
