MLB - Cardinals @ Nationals
(MLB) St. Louis vs. Washington, 07/06/2024 4:05 PM, Score: 6 - 14
Money Line: -123.00 Washington (Home)
Result: Win
I'm backing the Nationals at home vs the Cardinals in Game 2 for these reasons:

- MacKenzie Gore is on the mound vs the Cardinals who are currently batting 0.219 against Lefties. Gore has 107 strikeouts in 90 innings pitched, along with a 4-4 home record.

- Cardinals are starting Lance Lynn who's 1-3 on the road, averaging under a strikeout per inning, and versing a Nationals team that has a 0.238 batting average vs righties.

- Overall, both pitchers should play well given how poor the batting rotations have been for them equally. The slight upper upperhand just goes to the home team with the Lefty on the mound.

Official Play: Nationals Moneyline

Side Bet: MacKenzie Gore over 5.5 strikeouts

Hail Mary: Under 9 runs
