San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Washington Nationals. In their last three matches and four of their last six at home, the Nationals won.


They scored 17 runs in their previous three home matches, displaying excellent offensive play at the time.


They are batting over, therefore, expect them to play well offensively in this game, .300 versus left-handed batters, but in his last two road outings, Weathers faltered on the mound, allowing five runs.


He struggled to contain the Nationals in his lone start against them, giving up four runs, and he’ll have a tough time doing so in this contest. They needed help scoring runs on offense throughout their skid, scoring just ten runs in their past five away games. 


The team is barely batting over in this game, so things will be more complex. Williams pitched well in his last three home starts, allowing just two runs, and he has a WHIP of 200 against right-handers.


He will again contain the Padres’ offense after giving up one run in his previous outing against them. Cover the money line by moving with Washington. The Washington Nationals will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
