Colorado is 11-5 in their last 16 Friday games and 35-75 in their last 109 road games. The over is 4-1 in Colorado’s last 5 game two’s of a series. Washington is 17-38 in their last 55 games and 14-38 in their last 52 home games. The under is 4-1-1 in Washington’s last 6 Friday games. Colorado is 4-2 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

These starting pitchers come into this game with some elevated ERA’s, particularly Aaron Sanchez for the Nationals. Sanchez pitched better in his last outing, but he has not been very sharp this year. Gomber has been better than Sanchez this season, but has had a couple of poor starts as well. With these two pitchers facing each other, I like the over here.
