Arizona vs. Washington,

Score: 5 - 1
Money Line: -137 Washington
3* MLB SMASH on Nationals -137
Back home and looking to end a 4-game skid, I expect the Nats to be very focused and hungry when they hit the field tonight.
The Nationals are 10-2 in their last 12 home games and 9-1 in their last 10 games as a home favorite. The Diamondbacks, meanwhile, are 17-42 in their last 59 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage greater than .600 and 1-6 in their last 7 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150.
Washington clearly has the edge on the hill with Zimmerman, who is 1-0 (3-0 on the ML) with an ERA of 1.35 over his last 3 starts. He's posted a 1.29 ERA in 2 home starts this season, both Washington wins. Cahill is just 1-2 in his last 3 starts with an ERA of 4.42. We'll take the Nats.
