Nats Love Playing At Citizens Bank Park

Washington Nationals Philadelphia Phillies

The Washington Nationals will aim to sweep their weekday series with the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday evening. Citizens Bank Park has been a home away from home for the Nats with wins in seven of their past eight appearances in Philly.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 4-0 in the last four meetings between the Nationals and Phillies.
  • The Nationals are 8-2 in their past 10 road games.
  • Bryce Harper is still listed as day-to-day after sitting out Tuesday’s matchup.

Max Scherzer has also loved facing a punchless Phillies’ lineup over the past few seasons. Since joining the Nationals rotation, Scherzer is 4-0 with a 1.88 ERA against the Phillies.

The Phillies will send Adam Morgan to the mound despite the lefty struggling mightily this season. If you remove his two starts against the awful Atlanta Braves – the worst offense in the MLB – Morgan has posted a 10.26 ERA while allowing opponents to hit .363.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Philadelphia Phillies were listed as 188 moneyline underdogs earlier in the day at BetOnline, while odds makers set the opening total line around 7.5 earlier at Bovada.
