Shane’s Free Pick
Both teams are going to really struggle to score in this game. Gray and Luzardo have both been good this season and especially the Marlins bats are going to really struggle here. Look for neither team to reach four runs here. It’s a lean with the Nationals, but the stronger play is the under here.
