Run line/Against the spread

Washington is the lean in principle. but any profit here is drowned out by the extra juice. AVOID.

Over/Under

Peg just the slightest lean here on the UNDER 9.5 (-105). Either or both starters providing 5-6 quality innings would not be a surprise, and both bullpens come in well-rested.
