The Arizona Diamondbacks in the Washington Nationals meet for game one of their series from Arizona. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Diamondbacks are returning home from a road trip and are still about .500 for the season. They are 30 – 24 at home and sit 4.5 games and back in the division. For game one of the series they will send Trevor Cahill to the mound who has won two of his last three decisions. For the season as a whole he has allowed just 130 hits in 139 innings of work.
The Nationals have been solid all season and are playing great baseball right now. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games and have a four-game lead in the NL East. They will start their best pitcher in Stephen Strasburg tonight who has won last three starts. Strasburg has struck out 160 batters in 127 innings of work this season.
Arizona is 1-4 in their last five games overall, 20-8 in their last 28 home games, and 5-2 in Cahill’s last seven starts in game one of a series. Washington is 11-3in their last 14 games against a right handed starter, 4-1 in their last five game one of a series, and 0-5 in Strasburg’s last five starts against the NL West.
We like Strasburg for obvious reasons and like Cahill as well being he has pitched good lately. Give us the under for total runs scored in this game but first read online sportsbook reviews.
