Nationals vs Dodgers prediction

The Dodgers didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but it doesn't matter to me. The Nationals are a below average team, and Patrick Corbin has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball over the last few seasons. Through 16 innings this season, Corbin has allowed 27 hits and 15 runs. Since 2021, Corbin has a 5.83 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. I want nothing to do with Corbin, and it makes it even worse when going up against a stacked Dodgers lineup. There's only one way to go here. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value.
