Washington -1½ +160 over MIAMI

7:10 PM EST. Erick Fedde (RHP - WAS) has made 20 starts this year and comes in with a below average 5-8 record to go along with his 5.14 ERA. His xERA of 4.42 is uninspiring also. However, over his last five starts, Fedde has walked 7 and struck out 23 over 24 frames while pitching to a 5.92/4.19 ERA/xERA split. His groundball rate is 50% so a closer looks shows that this former prospect is trending the right way. Truth is, he has not capitalized on multiple MLB opportunities but his minor league pedigree was very, very good and maybe, just maybe, he’s found something at the age of 28. That said, this wager is more of a straight fade on Miami’s starter. 

Jesus Luzardo (LHP - MIA) is somehow 2-2 in his four starts with the Marlins, but he has been absolutely dreadful. In those 18 innings, he has a 9.68 ERA, 2.09 WHIP, 6.66 xERA. Right-handed batters are destroying him this season, with a .974 OPS. To top it all off, the Nationals actually lead MLB with a .798 OPS against left-handed pitching. For whatever reason, the price on the Nats has been coming down this morning. At the time of this writing, Washington was a very playable price on the money line but we’re going to play the Nats on the run line. Point being, when the price to fade Luzardo is so cheap, or there is any type of takeback, you can pencil us in.
