The Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals wrap up a three-game series today at 4:05 PM EST.

Julio Urias takes the mound for a Dodgers squad that's been on fire of late. After a hiccup to start the season, Urias is back to being his normal, dominant self. In his last four road starts, the 25-year-old lefty has a 1.64 ERA and allowed two or fewer hits in three of those games.

Washington counters with Erick Fedde, who has a 2.49 ERA in May after amassing a 6.00 ERA in April. Fedde has only surrendered more than three runs in one start this year, but has struggled to go deep in games and with command. Both could be an issue against a Dodgers lineup that averages the most walks per game in MLB.

Where does the value lie in this series finale? Can Los Angeles stay hot behind Urias or will Washington earn a much-needed home win?

Let's check out the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook to help find out ahead of this Dodgers vs Nationals matchup:

Dodgers vs Nationals Prediction and Pick

Washington's offense is in dire straits. They're 25th in OPS against left-handed pitchers and face an excellent southpaw in Urias, who ranks in the 92nd percentile in hard hit percentage. He hasn't allowed a single walk in his last four starts, so the Nationals will need to find a way to generate solid contact if they're going to score.

Scoring isn't something they've done much of lately. Entering yesterday's matchup, they'd scored three or fewer runs in 14 of their last 17 games. They lost all 14 of those as their pitching staff couldn't make up the difference.

For as resilient as Fedde has been this year, I don't see how he slows the Dodgers down today. Los Angeles easily leads the league in OPS against right-handed pitchers and their patient, yet powerful approach should frustrate the former first-round pick.

With the 24th-ranked bullpen backing Fedde up, the Dodgers' loaded lineup should score with ease just as they have all month long. Going into last night's game, the Nationals were 6-15 on the run line at home. Their woes continue behind a dominant performance from Urias and the Los Angeles Lineup of Death.

Pick: Dodgers -1.5 (-125)
