Rockies vs. Nationals Prediction and Odds

If Josiah Gray pitches the way he’s been pitching all year long, the Nationals are in trouble. Gray has an ERA of 15.00 and gives up several runs every start. He’s given up at least three earned runs in each of his last four starts. 

On the other hand, Kyle Freeland has shown a little bit more control. He’s coming off a six-strikeout, one-run start against the Pirates. Although he’s had a few games in which he’s given up several runs, it isn’t as common as with Gray. 

Gray has also given up nine home runs in the last five starts. I can’t trust a pitcher that lets the ball leave the yard twice in a start. 

Lean: Rockies ML (+113)
