Nationals vs Giants Prediction


Looking at the money line, we do see the Giants coming out on top, but the payout isn’t great at -197. Instead, we will be going with the over/under and predicting that this one will finish with a combined nine runs, giving you some wiggle room with the line sitting at 8.5.

Offensively, we have the Giants finishing with nine hits and the Nationals with nine. However, we do have the Giants hitting more home runs, and in terms of starting pitcher projections, Jordan Hicks is projected to finish with more K’s than Patrick Corbin.

For Corbin, his strikeout prediction is five, and for Hicks, he is also at five. If you’re looking for a parlay, you could take the Giants and pair that with the over, as we see there being a lot of runs in this one.
