Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals Prediction

Heading into game 1 of today’s doubleheader between Philadelphia and Washington, I expect the Phillies to pick up the win and cover the runline. The Nationals continue to roll out Joan Adon despite his WHIP now climbing to 1.76. Washington has won just 1 game with Adon on the mound. I expect Philadelphia to swing the bat well vs the Nationals right-hander. Free MLB Pick: Phillies -1.5 Runline.
