Arizona Diamondbacks vs Washington Nationals 4/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks will go against the Washington Nationals in MLB action in Nationals Park, D.C., on Monday, April 18, 2022, at 7:05 PM ET. Arizona started the year with a big win over San Diego, but victories are hard to come by thus far.

 

After that triumph against the Padres, the Diamondbacks went on to lose four consecutive matches until upsetting Houston in extra innings last Wednesday. Over the weekend, they had another poor series in New York, dropping two of their 3 matches.

 

Through the first ten games of the season, Arizona was the MLB’s worst offensive team, batting just .152 as a team. Seth Beer, the Diamondbacks’ designated hitter, leads the team with 8 hits in 20 at-bats. With 6 hits, second baseman Ketel Marte is in second place.

 

The Diamondbacks will face a Washington pitching staff that ranks 28th in the league with a 5.49 ERA. On Monday night, Arizona’s veteran Madison Bumgarner will take the mound. In his last appearance against Houston, he surrendered one run on 5 hits and two walks over five innings.

 

Bumgarner only had difficulties in the fifth inning, when he gave up a solitary home run. He did not have a string of good starts to start the season, and he did not throw more than 80 pitches in each start. 

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Arizona’s last 5 matches.
  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are 2-6 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • Arizona is 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches against Washington.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Washington Nationals Predictions 4/18/2022

 

The Nationals had a bad start to the season, dropping three consecutive matches against the Mets. This year, the Nationals aren’t anticipated to be a contender in the National League East. They recovered from a shaky start by winning four of their next six matches, including two of three against Atlanta.

 

Over the weekend, Washington underperformed in their series against the Pirates, dropping three of the four matches. The Nationals were defeated by two runs in each of the last two games of the series. So far this season, they’ve performed admirably at the plate, ranking 16th in batting average (.232).

 

Josh Bell, the first baseman, is off to a tremendous start, with 12 hits in 36 at-bats. Cesar Hernandez, the second baseman, has 12 hits, while star outfielder Juan Soto owns 11. They’ll be up against a No. 16 Arizona pitching staff with a 3.83 team ERA.

 

Josiah Gray, a right-handed pitcher, will start for Washington on Monday. He is returning from a five-inning no-hitter against Atlanta. Gray gave up four runs on 8 hits and two walks in his season start against the Mets, so this was a much-needed rebound performance. The 24-year-old enters the game with a 4.00 ERA.

 

  • The Washington Nationals are 5-15 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Washington’s last 6 matches against Arizona.
  • The Nationals are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches at home.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Washington Nationals. Bumgarner’s name will draw some wagers, but he was not a particularly good starter in recent seasons.

 

In 2022, he put up respectable stats so far, but he isn’t getting deep into his starts. Arizona does not have enough pitching talent to compensate for the offensive disparity in this contest. Bell and Soto, both great hitters, give the Nationals a huge advantage at the plate.

 

Gray rebounded back from a bad start against the Mets with a good showing against the Braves, which speaks well for his chances against baseball’s worst offense. The Washington Nationals will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
