Probable Pitcher:

Patrick Corbin (4-13, 6.02 ERA) will be on the mound for the Nationals in the 3rd game of the series. Corbin was beaten by the Diamondbacks on Friday. In five innings, he gave up five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out seven. He has a 5-11 record with an ERA of 3.94, 108 strikeouts and 2 saves in 23 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 64-32 record and have won 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.14 runs per game and they're batting for .256 AVG, 488 runs scored in 824 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 22 home runs. Trea Turner has 69 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.26 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.26 ERA, 90 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Andrew Heaney (1-0, 0.59 ERA)

White will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Dodgers. Manager Dave Roberts said Heaney (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday against the Nationals and he could be limited to about 75 pitches per start. He has an ERA of 5.14 and 5 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Nationals in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Washington Nationals are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Washington's last 14 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games at home.

LA Dodgers are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games against an opponent in the National League.

Prediction

The Dodgers were dominated again by the Nationals in the second game of the series as they scored only 3 runs against a team that is ranking #30 in defense in the league. Andrew Heaney is back with the team but he will be limited to 75 pitches and in his 3 starts this season he allowed 3 runs across 15.1 innings. The Nationals will send Patrick Corbin to start this game who has struggled all season and got rocked by the Dodgers the last 2 times he faced them. Look for the Dodgers to get their revenge and avoid the sweep.

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-140)
