San Diego is 3-9 in their last 12 games and 0-6 in their last 6 game two’s of a series. The under is 6-0 in San Diego’s last 6 Wednesday games. Washington is 8-18 in their last 26 Wednesday games and 42-91 in their last 133 home games. The over is 5-1 in Washington’s last 6 home games. San Diego is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings in Washington.


San Diego has won two games in a row, which may not seem like a big deal, but they had really struggled over the last couple of weeks. Washington is starting Trevor Williams, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 12.2 innings of work. San Diego is starting Ryan Weathers, who has bounced between the bullpen and the rotation. Weathers allowed four earned runs over 5.2 innings in his last start against the Dodgers. I like San Diego to continue their momentum and get the win in this game.
