Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Washington Nationals. The MLB Pick for this game is Washington -1.5. The Diamondbacks are now struggling in their offense after losing 2 games in a row and Bumgarner might not be the answer for their problem. The southpaw starter has some issues of his own in the last 3 or 4 years and he’s not showing any progress this season. On the side of the Nationals, the team had quietly and consistently coordinated their offense lately and Strasburg can blend his pitching skills with the group after a few consistent reps. The prediction, the Washington Nationals will win at 7-3.
