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.
