Washington +135 over Houston
The Nationals are another team we have targeted as underachieving. We began this journey with them on May 10, with the commitment to wager on them for a six-game run. That stretch wraps with this home series against the Astros on Sunday.
Josiah Gray (RHP - WAS) makes his seventh start of the season. He has proven to be profitable so far by going 4-2. Rare is the day you see a pitcher factor into each and every one of his starts. Especially a second-year starter. Often these young arms are over-protected, but the Nationals are letting Gray blow it wide open.
For the Astros, Framber Valdez (LHP - HOU) would fit that “glass statue” template. Valdez is 1-2 through six starts. He gave up nine hits in his last start against the Tigers and did not factor in the decision. Given the price here, this might be the best value we’ve seen on the Nats this week and we get their “Ace”. We are 1-2 with three games to go. Let’s see how the dust settles.
Washington +135 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.70)
