2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
August 08, 2010
Washington at Los Angeles

2 units on Washington +170 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Dodgers have dropped eight of their last 11 games while Washington has gone 7-5 in their last 12. Ted Lilly has pitched well this season, but his record is only 4-8 and he even has a losing record at home. Jason Marquis has been a disaster this season, but clearly that has had something to do with the bone chips in his elbow (which are no longer a problem). Los Angeles has averaged only 3.1 runs per game over their last seven so this is a spot where they could definitely falter. When coming off a loss this season, Washington has actually been a pretty good team, going 34-27. I like the Nats here at this big line.
