The Nationals need a win to snap a 5-game losing streak. The Nationals have the second-worst record in the NL at 65-84. The Nationals pitching staff is 27th in ERA (5.01), 28th in WHIP (1.46) and 19th in quality starts (47).

Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview

The Brewers look to stay hot after winning 7 of their last 9 games. The Brewers have a 6 game lead in the NL Central. The Brewers pitching staff is 4th in ERA (3.84), 3rd in WHIP (1.18) and 7th in quality starts (64). The Brewers' offense is 18th in runs per game (4.49), 25th in batting average (.239) and 24th in homers (152). Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 143 hits and 70 RBI, while William Contreras and Willy Adames have combined for 246 hits and 150 RBI. Brandon Woodruff gets the ball, and he is 5-1 with a 1.93 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Woodruff is 4-0 with a 0.85 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.

Randy’s Pick

The Nationals are looking more and more like a team that's ready for the season to end, and no longer have motivation to play spoiler. The Brewers continue to pile up wins and are closing in on a division title. Brandon Woodruff has been ridiculous through 56 innings with a 1.93 ERA and 0.79 WHIP, and he has 62 innings. With a larger sample size, Woodruff would be in the thick of the CY Young conversation. Not stepping in front of the Brewers here. Give me the Brew Crew and the RL for max betting value.
