The Washington Nationals and the Miami Marlins conclude a four game set in South Florida. All odds for all MLB games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
Washington is still in first place in the NL East after 4-1 over Miami on Sunday. Overall Washington has one 7 of 11 games and has gotten a good mix of solid pitching and hitting. Edwin Jackson will take the ball and the series finale tonight. He’s coming off a pair of subpar starts in which he has let up 12 runs in just 8.2 innings of work.
The Marlins are another one of those teams that are underachieving right now and will need a big winning streak to get back into the playoff picture. The Marlins have yet to get my major role and with so many teams in front of them they will need to start winning the division games to make a run. Carlos Zambrano will take the mound tonight and will hope to get back to his early-season success. He has not got a lot of run support lately which he hopes will change tonight.
Although Zambrano has thrown the ball well over his last two outings and is capable of throwing a gem anytime we really feel that Washington is poised to take control of this division. Because of this, they will be playing with a sense of urgency and we will take the better team in Washington as a slight moneyline road favorite at online sports books.
