Nationals at Orioles picks and predictions
Nationals 5, Orioles 4
The Baltimore bullpen remains due for a correction after a hot start to this month. Both offenses perform better on the road: Advantage Nationals.
BACK WASHINGTON (+125). Consider holding back on a full unit. This price edging toward +130 would make for a more workable margin.

Washington is the lean in principle, but I'd project the ML price to drift toward Baltimore, yielding a workable price there. AVOID.
Tuesday's contest was a slight lean on the Under, and with both bullpens still in good shape this one is in the same boat.
BACK THE UNDER 9.5 (-122).
