On the mound for the Phillies in Game 1 will be Kyle Gibson who sits with a 10-7 record and an ERA of 4.84. In his last start against the Atlanta Braves, he went five innings giving up seven hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Nationals in Game 1 will be Anibal Sanchez who sits with a 3-6 record and an ERA of 4.06. In his last start against Miami he went five innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Phillies are 1-7 against the spread in their last eight road games. The under is 4-0 in the Phillies last four games overall. The under is 9-1-2 in the Nationals' last 12 games on grass. 

In Game 1 it’s going to be the Nationals that pull the upset. Sanchez in his last start gave up zero runs, and the Phillies offense has been inconsistent coming into this game. It might not be the prettiest game, but the Nationals are going to secure the victory.

In Game 2, there won’t be a whole lot of runs being scored. The Nationals bats have been ice-cold heading into this game. Even if the Phillies score five or six runs, this game is going to be low scoring. Back the under to cash.
