15* NL Monday No-Doubt Rout on Washington Nationals -112
Atlanta vs. Washington,
08/05/2013 19:05 EDT,
Score: 3 - 2
Money Line: -112 Washington
The Washington Nationals are showing some of their best value of the season tonight as a small home favorite with ace Stephen Strasburg on the mound. Atlanta comes in hot, but Strasburg and company will cool the Braves off at home in this one.
Strasburg has posted a 3.04 ERA and 1.082 WHIP over 21 starts this season. He has been virtually unhittable at home, going 4-4 with a 1.68 ERA and 0.880 WHIP in 11 home starts in 2013.
Mike Minor is having a solid season for the Braves, too, but he's no Strasburg. Plus, Minor is 3-2 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.421 WHIP in six career starts against Washington.
The Nationals are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Washington is 35-17 in its last 52 home games vs. a left-handed starter. Take the Nationals Monday.
