Jackson Has Been Fade Material in September

The two best teams in the National League are set to tangle on Friday when the Los Angeles Dodgers invade D.C. to face the Washington Nationals. Sportsbooks opened the Nats as +139 home underdogs with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games as favorite.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Dodgers’ last six games against right-handed starting pitchers.
  • The Nationals are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games when opening a series.

Alex Wood and Edwin Jackson are expected to get the start for the Dodgers and Nationals, respectively. Wood (14-3, 2.81 ERA) has battled a sternum injury of late and it’s shown, as the hurler owns a 3-3 record with a 5.10 ERA in his last six appearances. Wood has been stellar on the road on the year, however, going 6-1 with a 2.38 ERA away from home in 2017.

Jackson (5-5, 4.14) fell to 0-2 with a bloated 9.00 ERA this month after getting tagged for five runs on seven hits in a setback to Philadelphia on Saturday. Jackson is 4-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 10 career games vs the Dodgers.

UNDER bettors love seeing these teams collide, as each of the last three meetings between the squads has gone below the closing total.
