2 units on Washington +160 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Washington Nationals have gotten a lot of unexpected mileage out of Livan Hernandez. Hernandez has an impressive 8-7 mark with a 3.12 ERA pitching on a team that is well under .500. Perhaps more impressive is the fact he is .500 on the road, with a team that is 20-38 on the road. The Dodgers are on a freefall right now at 7-15 over their last 22 games. The problem is a team that has scored two or less runs in 14 of the 22 games, that is 64% of the time, hard to win games at that clip. They have also not been winning behind Kuroda as they have dropped five of his last six starts. I like Washington in this one.
