How They Match Up:
The game also pits Arizona's No. 4-rated National League offense, averaging 4.6 runs per game, against a Nationals defense that ranks No. 1 in the National League at 3.5 in runs allowed per game. The Diamondbacks have averaged 8.8 hits per game so far, less than Nationals batters have averaged on the year (8.9 hits per game).

Defensively, Washington features the National League's No. 1-rated defense on the road, allowing 3.2 runs per game. Arizona, meanwhile, comes in at No. 3 in the National League at home, scoring 5.4 runs per game.

Washington won its last outing, a 5-0 result against the Astros on August 9. Bettors who backed the Nationals at -169 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window. The Nationals hope for a dominant pitching performance similar to their last game when Jordan Zimmermann struck out 11 batters in 5-0 victory on Thursday at Minute Maid Park.

The Diamondbacks were a 6-3 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Pirates. That made winners of bettors who got Arizona at +110 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for OVER bettors. Arizona looks to continue its winning ways following a victory last time out against the Pirates, a 6-3 final on Thursday in support of Joe Saunders at PNC Park.
