Game Odds:

Team Moneyline Total Run Line
WSH (31-35) +115 o7.5 (-120) +1.5 (-180)
DET (32-34) -135 u7.5 (-105) -1.5 (+150)



The prediction for this game is for the Detroit Tigers to win. Here’s why:

Reese Olson, despite his 1-7 record, has a solid ERA of 3.43 and has shown the ability to limit hits and keep runs down. His performance will be crucial in containing the Nationals' offense, which has been inconsistent.

Detroit's offense, led by Riley Greene and Matt Vierling, has the potential to exploit Jake Irvin, who, although has a respectable ERA, could be vulnerable against a Tigers lineup looking to rebound from recent losses.

Additionally, the Tigers have a slightly better record at home and will be motivated to leverage their home-field advantage to secure a win.

Pick: Detroit Tigers to Win
