The Washington Nationals vs Houston Astros in MLB action in Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET. The Nationals had a difficult season in 2021.

 

They lost Max Scherzer and Trea Turner, who were the heart of the club, in addition to placing last in their division. They also dealt Kyle Schwarber, the team’s leadoff hitter, who appeared to smash a home run in every match in June.

 

After realizing they didn’t have a chance to make the playoffs, Washington went into complete tank mode in the second half of the year.

 

Will Stephen Strasburg ever be able to reclaim his ace status? Due to a series of ailments, the 33-year-old only threw 26.2 innings in the previous two seasons. Strasburg was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome last season, forcing him to miss the remainder of the season with the hopes of recovering in time for the 2022 season.

 

The most troubling aspect of TOS is that few starting pitchers fully recovered. Former All-Star Matt Harvey, for example, was never the same. Patrick Corbin’s status as the Nationals’ No. 2 starter is quite alarming.

 

Corbin signed a 6-year, $140 million deal with the Nationals after an all-star season with the Diamondbacks in 2018. If Corbin continues to throw as he has, that may be one of the worst contracts in Nationals history.

 

  • The Nationals are 3-2 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Washington is 16-20 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Nationals’ previous 5 matches.

Washington Nationals vs Houston Astros Predictions 3/29/2022

 

The Astros claimed the American League pennant for the third time in 5 years after 7 months of vitriol from throughout the sport but fell two victories short of a redemptive World Series championship. The opportunity for them to capture another championship, however, did not totally close.

 

In 2022, they anticipate eight of its nine everyday position athletes, as well as a growing young starting pitching core, to come back. Filling Carlos Correa’s vacancy at shortstop will be important, but Justin Verlander’s return to the head of the rotation gives Houston one of the AL’s best pitching staffs.

 

Reggie Jackson, a former New York Yankees star and Hall of Famer, was acquired by the Astros last year. Given the enmity between the two companies, Jackson joined Houston owner Jim Crane’s closest circle of confidants – his official title is “special adviser” to Crane — a startling contrast.

 

Jackson wore Astros paraphernalia throughout the 2021 postseason, including a blue hat with “Mr. October” sewn in orange.

 

  • The Astros are 1-4 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Houston is 19-18 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 25 of the Astros’ 40 last matches at home.

Washington Nationals vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. The Nationals’ starting rotation is poor, their infield is ordinary, and the bottom half of their lineup will be lucky to get on the board. The Marlins and Nationals will be overshadowed by the Mets, Phillies, and Braves due to their excellent division.

 

If you bet $1 on the Nationals to claim the World Series, you’ll earn $150, but you’ll also lose $1. In 2022, keep away from the Nationals. Houston will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
