The Washington pitching staff has a 4.93 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a .263 opponent batting average this season. The Nationals offense has scored 158 runs with a .250 batting average and a .317 on base percentage. Juan Soto is batting .250 with eight home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Nationals this season.

Washington is 20-41 in their last 61 road games and 29-67 in their last 96 games. The under is 3-1-1 in Washington’s last 5 Friday games. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 7-3 in their last 10 Friday games. The over is 10-4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 15 games. Washington is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

These two teams are trending in opposite directions this season with all signs pointing to Milwaukee being the better team. Fedde has been inconsistent this year and usually does not pitch deep into games, while Lauer had been on an absolute roll before giving up 4 runs over 5 innings against the Marlins in his last start. I like the Brewers in this matchup and would take them in a moneyline parlay or to win by 1.5 runs.
