Preview

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game series at the Nationals Park on Wednesday. The Dodgers destroyed the Nationals again 9-4 in the second game of the series.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 29-13 record and have won 9 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging .248 at bat scoring 5.54 runs per game while allowing 3.17 runs. Freddie Freeman is batting for .310 AVG. Mookie Bets leads with 12 home runs and Trea Turner has 34 RBI. 

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler (6-1) allowed three runs in six innings, retiring 15 of the last 17 batters he faced. He yielded six hits and struck out three.

Probable Pitcher: 

Julio Urias (3-3, 2.63 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Urias picked up the win in Friday's 4-1 victory over the Phillies, scattering two hits over five scoreless innings. He struck out five without walking a batter. He had 2 starts against the Nats last season and allowed 4 runs across 11.2 innings.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 14-30 record and have lost 8 of their last 10 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.

Josiah Gray gave up seven runs in three innings, and is tied with Cincinnati's Hunter Greene for the NL lead in homers allowed with 12.

Probable Pitcher: 

Erick Fedde (2-3, 4.08 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 3rd game of the series. Fedde allowed two runs on four hits and three walks over 5.2 innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against Milwaukee.

BETTING TRENDS

LA Dodgers are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games against Washington.

LA Dodgers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Washington are 2-14 SU in their last 16 games at home.

Washington are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against LA Dodgers.

Prediction

The Nationals were outscored again by the Dodgers on Tuesday so they have now lost 9 straight games against them and they now have to face Julio Urias who held them to only 1 run in his last start against them. There's nothing that indicates the the Nationals can pull out the upset. Take the Dodgers for the sweep. 

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-130)
