Why L.A. Dodgers are a good bet at +108
Roberts has a lot of flexibility because he’s got one of the top starting rotations in baseball. Ryu’s ERA is 2.32. His away ERA is 2.72. Because Ryu’s average allowed in away games is .253, he shouldn’t have too much trouble handling the Washington Nationals in Game 3 on Sunday. The Dodgers have a real shot of wrestling back homefield advantage. They won’t let the opportunity slip away.
Quality Starts: 80
Errors: 106 Why Washington Nationals are a good bet at -124
The Nationals, like most teams in MLB, play better at home than they do on the road. Washington not only plays better at home, but they played well against the Dodgers during the regular season. Although the Dodgers beat the Nationals 4 games to 2 in the 6 battles, the Nats won one of the games with Max Scherzer. The Dodgers got a feel for Scherzer when he pitched a scoreless inning in Game 1. That took nothing out of Max. He should be ready to roll on Oct. 6
