20* NL Tuesday No-Doubt Rout on Washington Nationals -132
Washington vs. Colorado,
06/26/2012 20:40 EDT,
Score: 12 - 5
Money Line: -132 Washington
The Washington Nationals have a big edge on the mound tonight with Gio Gonzalez over Christian Friedrich. Off back-to-back losses, the Nationals are certainly motivated for a victory Tuesday, and I believe they get one behind their impressive left-hander.
Gonzalez is 9-3 with a 2.55 ERA and 1.051 WHIP in 14 starts this season. He has certainly loved his switch to the National League after pitching well in Oakland previously.
Friedrich is 4-4 with a 5.65 ERA and 1.588 WHIP in nine starts this season. Colorado's left-hander has been atrocious at home, going 1-2 with a 12.60 ERA and 2.533 WHIP in three starts at Coors Field.
The Nationals are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a road favorite of -110 to -150. Washington is 5-0 in Gonzalez's last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record and 4-0 in his last 4 road starts. The Rockies are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win and 0-4 in their last 4 games as a home underdog of +110 to +150. These five trends make for a perfect 21-0 system backing Washington. Bet the Nationals Tuesday.
