Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals Predictions 5/2/2023 


The Nationals are currently on track to achieve their predicted results.


The club did not yet win more than two straight games this season, but with Sunday’s 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, they ended a three-game losing run.


Tuesday’s starting pitcher is Trevor Williams (1-1, 4.10 ERA). Williams’ final start against the Met on Thursday was lost by Washington 9-8.


In the game’s five innings, Williams gave up four runs that were earned. Williams has 164 career appearances and a 39-45 record with a 4.26 ERA.


 Despite struggling overall, the Nationals’ offense ranks 12th with a .252 batting average. Washington ranks last in home runs hit per game, 27th with a .670 OPS, and 26th overall with an average of 3.95 runs per game.


Jeimer Candelario, who has four home runs and 14 RBI, is the team’s top player.


  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Washington’s last 12 matches.
  • The Washington Nationals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Washington’s last 9 matches against the Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. For the Nationals, who lost 48 of their previous 66 games at Nationals Park, having the home field was not much of a benefit.


Although the starting pitchers for this game are similar, the Cubs’ bullpen and offense were far superior to the Nationals’ lineup.


Chicago just completed a sweep of Miami, so anticipate them settling into this series and picking up another victory on Tuesday. The Cubs will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
