Dodgers vs Nationals Prediction


Our prediction for the Dodgers vs. Nationals game is to take the over, with the line being set at 8.5 runs. We actually have the Dodgers winning this one by a score of 5-4, but with the payout for a Dodgers win being just -199, we see better value in taking the over.

Looking at the starting pitchers, our projections have Yoshinobu Yamamoto finishing with seven strikeouts compared to MacKenzie Gore with six. However, we have Gore finishing with a better ERA, and if you’re looking for a player prop bet, you could look at Gore’s strikeout line and take the under.
