Preview

The Washington Nationals will host the Colorado Rockies to play a 3-game series at the Nationals Park. The Rockies lost their last series against the Pirates and the Nationals lost 2 of 3 games vs Dodgers.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 20-23 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.6 runs while allowing 5.37 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 12 home runs, 33 RBI and batting for a .319 AVG.

Chad Khul leads the pitching staff with a 3.67 ERA, 31 strikeouts and 3 wins for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher: 

German Marquez (1-4, 6.14 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 1st game of the series. Marquez took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets, coughing up five runs (four earned) on 11 hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out seven.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 15-30 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 3.8 runs per game but allowing 5.2 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .296, 4 home runs and 23 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 8.

Fedde pitched six innings, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out six in the Nats win vs Dodgers.

Probable Pitcher: 

Patrick Corbin (0-7, 6.60 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 1st game of the series. Corbin took the loss in Saturday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Brewers, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Washington.

Colorado are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Washington are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games.

Washington are 3-14 SU in their last 17 games at home.

Prediction

In the last 3 head to head games between these two teams the average score is 5.3-6.3 favoring the Nats. Both pitchers have been terrible and are allowing more than 6 runs per game. I can only expect another high scoring game. Take the over. 

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
