Washington enters this series on a 4 game winning streak while Los Angeles comes in on a 5 game winning streak themselves.
The Dodgers swept the Nationals earlier this season.
Max Muncy hit a grand slam to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-2 rain-shortened win against the Washington Nationals in on Thursday night.
Mookie Betts hit a go-ahead single during a 9 run 7th inning rally after Washington ace Max Scherzer departed, and the Dodgers surged past the Nationals 10-5 Friday night for their 7th straight win.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to build on a 3-1 win over the San Francisco Giants last time out. Chris Taylor had a double and 2 RBIs while Max Muncy added a solo home run to make up the scoring for the Dodgers in the win.
First baseman Max Muncy is leading the NL in votes for his position and its easy to see why with his statline. He has a team high 18 HR’s and 44 RBI’s on a .264 average. Third baseman Justin Turner has been the most consistent hitter with team bests of .296 average and a .388 OBP as well as 12 HR’s and 40 RBI’s.

Kyle Schwarber hit his 14th home run of June to set the Nationals record for the most home runs in a calendar month since the team was founded as the Montreal Expos in 1969. Schwarber broke a tie with former National Bryce Harper (May 2015) and retired Expo Vladimir Guerrero (September 2000) to take the record for himself.
Schwarber has been a great offseason addition for the Nationals as he has a team-best 25 homers and 53 RBI’s. He’s currently on a 1 year/$10 million dollar contract with the Nationals and should expect to see a nice pay day this offseason.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Los Angeles is 51-31 overall

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers have dominated this series with their offense so far and with Kershaw on the mound it’s hard not to like the Dodgers to cover the run line in this spot.
While Espino has performed well in his 3 starts, he hasn’t been pitching deep into games and has benefitted from some good luck during those appearances.
Look for the Dodgers to win again and increase their win streak to 8 games.
