MLB Runline Value
Washington vs. Colorado,

Score: 2 - 4
Point Spread: -1½/-110 Washington
*3 Star MLB Runline Value* This is a classic pitching mismatch. Stephen Strasburg is one of the most dominant young pitchers in baseball. Jeff Francis wasn't even signed by a major league team at the beginning of the season. Francis never had dominating stuff, and he has gotten worse with age. The Nationals don't have a strong lineup, but I still think they can score several runs against Francis as Coors Field. The Rockies have a solid offense, but without Tulowitzki, they are less imposing. The Nationals ave the best pitching staff in baseball. The Rockies have the worst pitching staff in baseball. The pitching mismatch is too much to overlook. Take Washington -1.5.
