Phillies Nationals Sunday Night Betting

The visiting Phillies look to start making headway in the NL East Sunday as they look to steal a win at Nationals Park against the Washington Nationals.

It's a pitching duel between Jordan Zimmermann for the Nationals (1-2 on the year) and Cole Hamels for Philadelphia (3-1 so far). And the opening MLB total reflects that fact - a very low over under value of 6.
