Shane’s Free Pick

The Nationals offense has been inconsistent and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Miller gave up only one run in his last start and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. Look for the Nationals to only scored one or two runs and that is going to be the difference as the Dodgers are going to get the job done. Back the Dodgers on the run line to cash here.
