Money Line: -151 Washington
This is an 8* MID-CHALK CHOKE-OUT on the Washington Nationals.
I played on the Nationals yesterday as well and also love them in this match-up. The visitors hand the ball to Rubby De La Rosa, who gave up four runs off eight hits over six frames vs. Houston on Friday; note that De La Rosa has now allowed at least four earned runs and eight hits in three of his last five starts and is just 2-4 with a poor 5.14 ERA on the road this season. The home side counters with Gio Gonzalez (8-4, 3.75 ERA) who is coming off a mediocre start in which he gave up one run off four hits over 4 2/3's innings in a no-decision vs. the Mets on Friday. Gonzalez though has to be feeling pretty confident that he can bounce back today though as he's a near-perfect 5-1 with a 2.50 ERA in front of the home town crowd. This is a super important series for the home side as they look to leap-frog the Mets for the division lead, so there's no question in our minds that the NATIONALS are worth the price of admission in this matchup.
