Major League Baseball Top Exposures - Nationals

The Washington Nationals are a major exposure here seeing 80% of the action as a -210 favorite versus the Rockies.

This one has jumped from -180 to -215 across the board.

Washington is a high priced favorite.

The Nationals Max Scherzer struck out 10 in a two-hit shutout of Atlanta in his last turn and has fanned 10 in two of his three starts.

The Rockies RH Jon Gray (1-2, 5.63 ERA) was roughed up for seven runs and a career-worst 10 hits while losing to the San Diego Padres in his last turn.  He is 0-1 with a 5.73 ERA in two career starts against the Nationals and has shut down Howie Kendrick (0-for-10, four strikeouts).

The problem here is that the Nationals are just 2-8 in their last 10 overall, so laying -210 on this team is not something I would suggest.

The Boston Red Sox have moved from -160 to as low as -149 and seeing better than 90% of the action at some books though not quite the volume of the Nationals.

Boston has won the last four meetings while Baltimore won the three previous games.

Boston is 11-1 in their last 12 overall.

Neither of these games are appealing to me so will pass on a play here.
