My 9* Weekly Wipeout is on the StL Cards at 7:45 ET.

The Washington Nationals made a memorable run in winning the 2019 World Series but followed by going just 26-34 in 2020, finishing last in the NL East. The pandemic-depleted Nationals of 2021 have opened 1-5 (.167), giving them the worst record in MLB. Washington will try to snap a five-game losing streak when they visit the 5-4 St Louis Cardinals for a three-game series starting Monday. The Cardinals know all about dealing with COVID-19, as the Cards were kept off the field from July 30 through August 14 last season. However, the Cards somehow managed to earn a wild card spot with a 30-28 record

Erick Fedde (0-1, 27.00 ERA) of Washington and John Grant (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will each make their second starts of the season in Monday's game. Faded is in his fifth season with Washington and in 47 appearances (35 starts), is just 8-12 with a 5.29 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. He allowed six runs (five earned) of a 7-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves on April 7. His only career start vs St Louis came back in 2018 when he allowed four ERs over five innings of an 11-8 loss (he got a no-decision). Gant is in his sixth season but he's started just 29 times in his 135 career appearances. Gant didn't allow an earned run in four innings during a 4-2 victory over Miami on April 6 (got a no-decision). His most recent starts vs Washington came in 2018 (two), as he allowed just one ER over 9.2 innings (0.93 ERA) with the Cards winning both games.

The Nats are a mess right now, having lost FIVE in a row and enter having averaged 2.83 RPG (28th of 30 teams). Washington was just 15-28 vs righties last season, including 6-14 on the road, averaging 3.9 RPG. The losing continues for Washington, as St Louis wins "with room to spare!"

Good luck...Larry

FAQs

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.
