Baltimore Orioles vs Washington Nationals Prediction

The Baltimore Orioles are the better team on paper, they've put together 4 straight wins, and they have an all star caliber pitcher on the hill in Corbin Burnes. The Orioles should be decent sized favorites over a Nationals team that's not supposed to be good. With that said, the Nats continue to tread water, cash tickets as underdogs and Trevor Williams has been more than solid this season. Williams is giving the Nationals a chance to win every time he takes the mound, and getting him at home with a chance to make nearly two times your money feels like a good value bet. I'll take a shot in the dark with the Nationals at home.
