Dodgers Continue To Roll At Nationals Park

Though the three-game series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals is a little toothless with both teams already in the postseason, there are still good opportunities for bettors. With an easy 7-0 victory in the series opener Friday, the Dodgers have increased their dominance in the nation’s capital and have gone 7-2 in their past nine at Nationals Park.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Dodgers' last 4 games against the Nationals.
  • The Nationals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games with A.J. Cole as the starting pitcher.
  • The Dodgers are 0-4 SU in their last 4 games with Rich Hill as the starting pitcher.

The Dodgers will turn to Rich Hill, who has lost his past four starts, in this one. However, those losses can’t be pegged on the southpaw with Hill surrendering two or fewer earned runs in three of those four. The Dodgers’ offense has supplied Hill with a combined seven runs of support in his past four outings – six of which came in one game.

The Nats will send AJ Cole to the bump for his first start since September 4 in this one. The young righty has come out of the bullpen twice since his last start allowing six hits and three runs in 4.0 innings. In Cole’s six starts this season, he has a 4.01 ERA with 8.3 SO/9.
