Have Dodgers Figured it Out?

There has been talk about a slow start to the season for the Dodgers but they currently sit with a 13-11 record overall. On Sunday the Dodgers faced off against the New York Mets, and they were able to secure a 10-0 victory. First baseman Freddie Freeman finished with two hits and two RBIs. Shohei Ohtani hit a home run and drove in two RBIs. The Dodgers are averaging 5.17 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.54 runs per game. The offense is ranked 8th in the league while the pitching is ranked 19th. The Dodgers are averaging 1.17 runs per game which is 7th in baseball. Getting the start for the Dodgers will be James Paxton who has a 2-0 record and an ERA of 2.81. Even with the low ERA, Paxton wasn’t great in the last game. Against the Padres, he went five innings giving up three hits and three earned runs. In 16 innings he has had 14 walks, and he needs to have better control. Jason Heyward is still dealing with a back injury and he’s out until early May. 

Nationals Have Won Two Straight

The Nationals should have a little bit of confidence heading into this game and they have won two straight games. In the last game against the Houston Astros, the Nationals were able to secure the 6-0 victory. In the first inning, they got out to a 3-0 lead, and they never looked back on the way to the victory. The Nationals are averaging 3.81 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.24 runs per game. The offense is ranked 24th in the league while the pitching is ranked 9th. The offense has been inconsistent and they are going to need the offense to be good to find success in this game. Getting the start for the Nationals will be Patrick Corbin who sits with an 0-3 record and an ERA of 8.06. Against the Dodgers in his last start he went 6.1 innings giving up nine hits and five runs.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Washington Nationals Betting Prediction

This game between the Dodgers and Nationals could end up being the highest-scoring game of the day. Corbin has been awful this season for the Nationals and in the last start against the Dodgers he gave up five runs. Paxton has had issues controlling the ball for the Dodgers and he’s going to really struggle here. The Nationals scored six runs on Sunday and they are going to score at least that here. Both teams are going to go over the six-run mark here, and that will be the difference here as this game is going to go over the total.
