It’s risky business any time you bet the Nationals with that awful bullpen. No lead is ever completely safe and Washington starter Patrick Corbin hasn’t gone past six innings in his last four outings. Read on to get Zank’s complete take on the game and free pick.
The final game on the Sunday MLB card has the Indians hosting the Phillies at Progressive Field in Cleveland. The MLB betting board has the Indians as -140 favorite on the money line with the total offered up at 10.5 runs.
Astros starter Wade Miley got blown up in back to back starts but rebounded nicely in his latest. He’s had a lot of success versus the Angels this season allowing four earned runs in three starts all won by Houston. Based on the probable starters the line when it comes out will be large, making maybe a run line pay the best bet.
The Dodgers long time ace Clayton Kershaw hit a bump in the road with two poor outings but rebounded somewhat recording a quality start in his latest. The Rockies send out rookie Peter Lambert who rarely pitch-es a good one. LAD backers will have to lay -320 if they want to bet the money line. Read on to get Dan’s sug-gested wager.

Here’s the biggest question of this series: just how motivated are the Reds going to be?
