Nationals plus $1.02 at Phillies

Keep an eye on emerging superstar Juan Soto. He’s coming on. 
Soto is a factor, but there are other reasons why I like the Nationals as an underdog to the Phillies. The pitching matchup is Max Scherzer versus Zack Wheeler.

I like Wheeler, who is 4-2 with a 2.52 ERA. But I like Scherzer better. The future Hall of Famer still is very good with a 2.34 ERA. He shouldn’t have to deal with Bryce Harper and Didi Gregorius, both of whom are expected to be out due to injuries. 

Scherzer is 5-1 with a 2.63 ERA in eight career starts with the Nationals at Philadelphia. 

The Phillies blasted the Reds, 17-3, in their last game. That was back on Tuesday, though. The Phillies have been idle since so they could be a little rusty. Prior to that massacre of the Reds, the Phillies were averaging a puny 2.1 runs in their past six games. 

(I am 8-1 on my last nine MLB premium side plays. I have a baseball premium side play today in addition to this free selection. If you are interested in my sports service please email me at, or message me via Twitter. Thanks and best of luck!)
