Washington at Philadelphia
Wednesday 09/16 07:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Washington -1.5 runs -115 (runline) (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: WIN
The Washington Nationals were projected to be the team to win the most games in the 2015 regular season. They have not only come up shy of those expectations, they are likely not to even make the playoffs. They trail the Mets by 8.5 games in the NL East, and are even further removed from Wild Card contention. They will have a very easy and winnable game tonight against Philadelphia and starter Adam Morgan, who carries the baggage of a 4.80 ERA, and a team that struggles to score runs. The Phillies are in danger of losing 100 games, and have scored 3 or fewer runs in almost half their games at 69. They are 8-61 when scoring fewer than 4, and that has equated to a 20-49 record to the runline and a miserable -47.6% ROI. The Phillies have dropped 70 games by 2 runs or more this season. Play Washington on the runline.
