OVER Continues To Cash Between D-Backs, Nats

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals kicked off their three-game set Tuesday in a game that saw the D-backs pick up the 6-3 win. The big takeaway for bettors is the sustained OVERs from the two squads, with 13 of the past 15 meetings between the D-backs and Nats topping the closing total.

Shark Bites
  • Bryce Harper is 10-for-18 with 13 TB against left-handed pitchers this season.
  • The visiting team is 6-2 SU in the last 8 games between the Diamondbacks and Nationals.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Nationals' last 9 games.

Robbie Ray will take the bump for Arizona in the second game of the series Wednesday. Ray has excelled on the road this season, as the lefty has posted a 0.71 ERA and has only surrendered seven hits in 12.2 innings. However, Ray is facing a Nationals lineup that has mashed lefties this season with the club slashing .363/.426/.677 against southpaws.

Gio Gonzalez, who will get the start for the Nats, has bounced back in a large way this season. Gonzalez had his worst season of his career in 2016 but has posted a 1.62 ERA through five starts this season, which includes going at least 6.0 innings in every outing. Gonzalez will be facing off against his kryptonite in Paul Goldschmidt, who is 8-for-12 with three RBIs in his career against the lefty.
