Washington is 16-36 in their last 52 games and 8-24 in their last 32 Friday games. The over is 5-1-1 in Washington’s last 7 games against the NL East.

The over is 12-4-1 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings.

Philadelphia has had a good season and comes into this game third in the NL East and 10 games behind the New York Mets. Washington has been horrible this season and just traded away their two best players. Washington will start Josiah Gray in this game, who has allowed 12 runs in his last 15 innings of work. For Philadelphia, Kyle Gibson has allowed nine runs in his last 23.1 innings. I am taking Philadelphia to win this game by at least two runs.
