WAS (-120) @ williamhill

10* Washington (7:05 ET): The Nationals got embarrassed at home last night, losing 12-5 to a Cardinals team they took two of three from in St. Louis last week. Interestingly enough, their two losses to the Redbirds this season have both been really ugly. (The other was 14-3). But just like they bounced back from the previous one (with a 6-0 win), I expect them to do well tonight. Neither starter has performed well yet this season, but the Cardinals’ overall inconsistency (haven’t won B2B games in 12 days) sticks out. 

Washington’s Pat Corbin has a 21.33 ERA and 3.002 WHIP after two starts. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there’s only one way for those numbers to go from here. He exited after only two innings his last time out, but not before being charged with 10 runs (allowed 3 HRs). His first start wasn’t much better as he allowed six runs, albeit on just six hits. So why the endorsement for tonight? Well, St. Louis is just 1-4 this season after scoring 6+ runs the last time and they’ve been held to three runs or less in four of those games (shutout twice). 

The Nats are also 2-0 this season after giving up 10+ runs. They face Adam Wainwright, whose three starts have resulted in a 7.10 ERA and 1.894 WHIP. The lone one on the road saw him get absolutely hammered for six runs in 2 ⅔ innings. The Cardinals hit five home runs yesterday, a feat they cannot count on regularly occurring, so look for a relatively “silent night” at the plate from them and the home team to bounce back from an embarrassing loss. 10* Washington


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
