BEST: Total runs under 8.5

Over 9 runs has a 0.9% edge

Our model has this at a 49% chance of staying under but with the plus money being it offered up from the books, it is a MUCH better play than the overs.


Nationals to win has a 50% probability

Similarly to the over/under bet above, our model has pulled out some plus money here, with the underdog Nationals just as likely to win as the -110* Phillies.

Run line

Nationals +1.5 has a 0.9% edge

As our projections have us going with the underdogs at the ML, they are also our play at the run line. The 1.5 headstart looks good in this one.

Dimers' take-out

This one should go right down to the wire, with our model predicting a low scoring game, likely to be decided by just the one run. If you're keen to play, you can review the best legal online sportsbooks in your area, here.
