Washington Nationals - Chicago Cubs

League: MLB, USA
OVER 8.50 RUNS TO WIN AT ODDS 2.06Final result: 9 - 2
Profit: 18.54 - 9 = 9.54
I expect today`s game between the Nationals and the Cubs to sneak above the posted total.
Washington won the first three meetings against Chicago in this four-game series, outscoring the Cubs with 22-7 during that span, and I expect more of the same today. The over is 2-1 in the current set.
The Nationals give the ball to Jordan Zimmerman (9-8 3.88 ERA). He struggled big time in his last three starts, pitching only for 13.2 innings while allowing 21 hits, which is a good for a huge 9.88 during that span. He lost twice with 4-3 against the Cubs on the road this season and I expect not an easy night for him. Chicago tries to counter with Justin Germano (2-5 6.30 ERA). He has yet to convince me and struggled even more than Zimmerman in his last three trips to the hill, going 0-3 with a 10.43 ERA.
The over is 7-2 in last 9 matches of the Nationals, while the over is also 8-2-1 in Cubs last 11 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The over is also 6-1 in the last 7 matches of Justin Germano and 8-2 in the last 10 home starts of Justin Zimmerman.
The home team should get plenty of runs, while the Cubs should also get on the board tonight. Price at 2.06 for over 8.50 runs to win represents enough value for high stakes.
