The Reds will look to continue winning ways when they head to the nation’s capital for the first of a 3 game set against the Nationals. Cincy has been in good form as of late going 7-3 in their last 10 and closing to within 4.5 games of a Wild Card spot.
Cincinnati will send Anthony Desclafani (7-6, 4.20 ERA) to the mound who has historically had great success against the Nationals. Desclafani has 7 career appearances against the Nats with a 2-0 record and a 2.17 ERA while only allowing an average of .208. It is also important to note that Anthony Rendon, Matt Adams, Asdrubal Cabrera and Trea Turner are all hit-less in their career against Desclafani.
The Nationals will look to put some games between them and the other teams fighting in a super tight race in the National League Wild Card this Monday when they welcome in the Cincinnati Reds. Washington will also be looking to turn around a mediocre run of form as they are 4-6 in their last 10 games.
Erick Fedde (2-2, 4.20 ERA) gets the start here for the Nats and he has shown some promise since taking over for Max Scherzer. Unarguably he is coming off the best start of his career where he threw 6 scoreless innings against the Giants on Monday. Fedde will look to find a repeat performance here and might just be in a good spot with the Reds offense ranking in the lower to middle end of the pack.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The current total for this one is sitting at 10.5 which does seem a bit high for me. I don’t think it is too crazy to see Fedde repeat his last performance here and multiple trends point toward the under while Desclafani is on the mound.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Go with the under here and look for a low to moderate scoring game with Desclafani and Fedde both going to at least the 6th inning.
