Washington at Philadelphia

1.5 units on Washington -149 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.51) RESULT: LOSS
Washington didn't enjoy its opening series against the Mets, dropping two of three, but this is still a talented team, and the one to beat in the NL East. The Nationals are 5-1 in their last six road games, plus 24-9 when following a loss. Starter Gio Gonzalez is 6-4 with a 3.05 ERA lifetime against Philadelphia. The Phillies dropped two of three to Boston, and are playing poorly everywhere, and the Phillies are 4-10 as an underdog. The Phillies go with retread righty Jerome Williams, off an awful 2014 (2-5, 6.71). The Nationals are 33-12 in Gonzalez's last 45 starts vs. a team with a losing record and hold all the cards in this division game. Play on Washington.
