Shane’s Free Pick
Anthony DeSlafani has been strong this season and he’s going to lockdown the Nationals here. Washington’s offense has been a major issue all season and they are going to really struggle to get any type of offense going in this game. This is going to be an easy victory for the Giants. Back the Giants -1.5.
