Washington Nationals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

started

I'm playing on the LOS ANGELES.  

This is the marquee series of the week and a potential NLCS preview with the Dodgers hosting Washington. I like the home team to take Monday's series opener.

I played against the Nationals yesterday as they lost up in Seattle.  They'd previously won 14 of 18 games, but there were several close calls in there and they have come back down to Earth since winning 10 in a row, which included seven one-run victories. They were actually swept in Philadelphia last week.

The Dodgers, meanwhile, avoided what would have been a sweep with a win in San Diego yesterday. Both of their losses in the series came by one run, each in extra innings.  So it looks like maybe the "luck" is going to turn for both teams in the interim. I like that Los Angeles is coming off a solid offensive performance as well, scoring 7 runs in the win Sunday.

Also making the case against Washington tonight is the fact their starter Gio Gonzalez has not won in some time, July 5th in fact. He's 0-5 (3-6 TSR) with a 4.38 ERA in nine starts since.

Roberto Hernandez has been surprisingly solid for LA in four starts since being traded from Philadelphia.  Also, in his final start as a member of the Phillies, he faced Washington and allowed just one unearned run in eight innings.  He's made eight straight starts without giving up more than three runs.  1* free play.

1* Baltimore (1:35 ET):  All signs are pointing towards an Orioles sweep this weekend.  

The home team won big Friday and then again Saturday by a final score of 3-2.  These teams continue to head in opposite directions.  Baltimore has won five of six.  Minnesota has lost 10 of 14.  With only the Orioles in a pennant race, this shaped up as an easy series and I'll call for them to finish things off proper.

I've liked what I've seen from Wei-Yen Chen so far. He only made it through 4.2 innings the last time we saw him, but that was also the first time he didn't go at least five in nearly two months. In eight of his last nine starts, he's allowed three runs or less. In his last three, he has a 2.84 ERA and 1.16 WHIP.

Minnesota is just 19-25 vs. LH starters this year.

They also went just 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position yesterday. Against a Baltimore team allowing just 2.9 runs its last seven games and allowing opponents to hit just .218, that's trouble. The Orioles bullpen has a ridiculous 1.06 ERA the last 14 games.

Twins starter Ricky Nolasco pitched well the last time we saw him.  But he still has a 6.50 ERA and 1.77 WHIP on the road this season.  1* free play.

I'm playing on ATLANTA.  It's a later start time than usual in Atlanta as the Braves look to bounce back from a shutout loss Saturday.   For a team in the thick of the Wild Card race, they can't afford to lose another one.  I see them responding with a win.

I like the pitching matchup from Atlanta's perspective.  Their starter Alex Wood has a 3.15 ERA and 0.90 WHIP his last three starts.  Meanwhile, Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi has a 7.54 ERA and 2.09 WHIP his last three.  

Wood has gone at least six innings and allowed three earned runs or less each of his last six starts.  He hasn't allowed more than six hits in any of those outings.

Then you have Eovaldi who got hammered the last time we saw him.  In 3.1 innings, he allowed six runs and 10 hits.  He's now allowed a total of 14 runs in just over 14 innings.

Miami had really been struggling before pulling out the 4-0 win Saturday.  They had been outscored 19-5 during a three-game losing streak.  

Atlanta is a strong home team at 38-29 at Turner Field.  Miami is just 29-37 on the road.

Coming into Saturday's game, Braves opponents had been averaging 2.1 runs per game while hitting .179 the last seven games.  

In Eovaldi's last 16 starts, Miami has come out on the losing end 12 times.  

Miami is also 1-5 when playing the third game of a series.    9* personal favorite.

I'm playing on SEATTLE.   The Mariners have lost the first two games of this Interleague series with Washington.  But pitching today will be Hisashi Iwakuma, who is having a wonderful year.  Iwakuma will lead his team to victory here and thus Seattle avoids the sweep.

Iwakuma didn't pitch well the last time we saw him.  But that was against Boston, who he always seems to struggle against.   Also consider that the Mariners still won that game, their fourth straight win overall with Iwakuma on the mound.  Iwakuma had previously allowed two runs or less in 9 of 10 starts, so his chances of bouncing back are good.  

In fact, he was actually working on a 17.2 inning scoreless streak going into the Boston start and was 3-0 with a 0.42 ERA his previous three starts.  

Iwakuma has not allowed a run in 22 innings when facing a NL opponent.  Just two starts ago he threw eight scoreless innings of four-hit ball vs. Philadelphia.   His last five starts at home, he's 4-1 with a 1.73.  

I don't see the middle of Seattle's order (#3-6) going 2 for 16 at the plate again today.  They also combined for nine strikeouts yesterday. The team is a strong 10-1 after scoring two runs or less in its last game.  

Washington has a big series with the Dodgers on deck, starting tomorrow.  Do not be surprised if they are looking ahead to that one.  The Nationals are 18-39 their last 57 Interleague games in which they were they underdog.  They were favored Saturday.  

Overall, the Nats aren't very good as dogs.  They are 19-41 last 60 in that role on the road.  They have lost four of five as road dogs with today's starter Tanner Roark pitching.

The Mariners have one of the better records in baseball in day games, going 26-17.   I'll go with them today.  10* personal favorite.

I'm playing on UTAH STATE.   Tennessee owns the unique distinction of being the ONLY team in the country not to return a single starter along either the offensive or defensive line. This is a dangerous Utah State team they are laying points to and I think it's too many.

When looking at Utah State this year, QB Chuckie Keeton is the name to remember.  Considered to be one of the more irreplaceable players in all of CFB, Keeton was lost for the year at the midpoint of last season.  The Aggies still made the Mountain West Championship Game and there gave Fresno State all they could handle.

Keeton is back this year.  Something you may not know is that at the time of the ACL injury he was second in the entire country in TD passes with 18.  He makes Utah State infinitely better.

The Aggies won't be intimidated by the environment of Neyland Stadium either.  Three years ago with Keeton making his first career start they went into Auburn and nearly won as 23-point underdogs.  That Auburn team was coming off a National Championship.  This Tennessee team certainly is not.

Utah State also brings in a quality defense.  Last year saw them rank 2nd in the country, giving up just 2.8 yards per rush.

It's pretty incredible to see how far Tennessee has fallen down the SEC pecking order.  They've had four consecutive losing seasons.  It's going to be tough avoiding a fifth as they face one of the nation's most difficult schedules.  

The SEC vs. the Mountain West is what's helped to inflate this line.  But Tennessee is one of the SEC's worst teams and Utah State is one of the MWC's best.  Take the points in this one.  10* GOM

SERVICE BIO

Ben Burns burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s, first making his selections available to the public in 1998. Now entering his tenth year, Ben has become one of the most successful and well-respected handicappers on the entire Internet.

From 1998 to 2006, Ben had his selections documented by the Big Guy Sports Monitor. During that time, he accumulated numerous seasonal titles in all the major sports. In fact, competing against a field of 150, Ben's NFL selections still rank as #1 of all-time there. With such a commanding lead over the field, it is highly unlikely that his all-time NFL record there will ever be matched.

Like all handicappers, Ben goes through both hot and cold streaks. However, whether winning or losing, he always "tells it like it is." Perhaps more importantly, as his many fans are quick to point out, Ben's winning weeks tend to greatly outnumber his losing ones. Note that Ben followed up an extremely strong 2006 with an even better campaign in 2007!

Ben is known as a "Totals Expert" and his over/under plays are highly sought after in all sports. In addition to his "total" success, Ben's "sides" are also known for their sizzling hot streaks. While he advocates playing all his selections equally, Ben's knack for nailing his "Big" plays is truly remarkable.

Ben capped off a highly successful college football season by winning his Bowl Game of the Year, a 41-10 wire-to-wire destruction on Georgia over Hawaii. Ben's NFL playoffs didn't go as well though and he lost his first ever Super Bowl selection, when the Patriots were upset by the Giants. Despite that rare setback, Ben's Super Bowl record remains at 10-1 for his career. Additionally, his NFL playoff picks remain a powerful 47-22 (68%) ATS the past six years. Ben isn't just a football expert though, as his hockey, baseball AND basketball picks are also highly respected.

Ben logs extremely long hours. His hard work clearly shows itself in his high quality writeups and extraordinary long-term records. If you're looking for an honest, hard-working handicapper with a documented history of success, give Ben Burns a try. We're sure that you'll be impressed!
