Washington Nationals vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

The Nationals are going to find a way to get the job done here. The Tigers send Mize to the mound, and he has had issues this season. In his last start he gave up five runs and he’s going to get blown up here. The Nationals are going to get the offense out to a fast start and that is going to be the difference here as Washington is going to get the job done. Back the Tigers on the money line to cash.
