The best team in the National League, along with the worst team wraps up their three-game series on Wednesday afternoon.

As you could expect, the Dodgers are once again set as massive favorites. But, no matter how the final game of the series go, they won't be able to get the taste out of their mouth of losing the first game to a team that has the worst record in baseball.

The loss likely won't matter in the grand scheme of things, but they'll do their best to not drop another game to the Nats.

Let's take a look at the odds for the series finale, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Nationals vs. Dodgers Odds, Run Line, and Total

Run line:

  • Nationals +1.5 (-105)
  • Dodgers -1.5 (-125)


  • Nationals +210
  • Dodgers -250


  • 9 (OVER -105 | UNDER -115)

Nationals vs. Dodgers Prediction and Pick

Of course anything can happen in sports, especially baseball, but I'd love to see someone to try make the argument that the Nationals are worth a bet in this spot.

There's no way I can touch either side of the moneyline or run line, so I'm going to look at the total instead.

Patrick Corbin continues to get starts for the Nationals, so if there's one thing we can bank on, it's that runs are going to be scored in this game. He holds a 6.02 ERA, and he's allowed at least four earned runs in three straight starts.

It doesn't help his case that Los Angeles ranks inside the top 10 in both batting average and OPS against left-handed pitchers this season.

Let's sit back and root for runs in this afternoon showdown.

LEAN: OVER 9 (-105)
