Senior Handicapper Matt Rivers of OffshoreInsiders.com has a winning pick on Washington Nationals (-1.5).
The Rockies have very little going for them and should be up against it today. Stephen Strasburg is a superstar and this isn’t the same Coors Fielder that in years past would kill any pitcher. With Troy Tulowitzki gone and the Rockies’ offense being extremely mediocre at the very best there is no reason to believe that the tall righthander won’t dominate as per usual.
Jeff Francis finally had a quality last start but the southpaw is well past his prime and is up against the far far superior team today with Zimmerman, Harper, LaRoche and other solid enough bats.
Washington should just outclass Colorado here on the road as the first place Nationals are playing with pride and have a lot to gain. Colorado is already a long lost and beat up bunch that played late last night in Texas and should rack up another loss today.
The pick: Washington
