Dodgers Nationals Betting Tips – Dodgers Ready To Fight For Wins With Three Crucial Games In Washington

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 9/16/2012 6:31:00 PM

The Washington Nationals have the best record in baseball, and an excellent opportunity to finish the year that way and lock up home field advantage for the National League playoffs. The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t have that opportunity, but are hoping they can find a way in to the postseason and cause some trouble. The Dodgers open a three-game set in Washington just two games back of the final Wild Card spot, but will need to find a way to manufacture wins against a Nationals’ team with one of the best online sports betting home records in baseball.

The first obstacle for Los Angeles will be finding a way to win with Aaron Harang on the mound, as the Dodgers have dropped the last four games that he started even though Harang hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in any of them. It certainly won’t help that he is pitching on the road in Washington and against a very good pitcher in Jordan Zimmermann, who has put together solid outings in consecutive starts to and will now be looking for a third-straight online betting win. Zimmermann is one of the names that will need to step up in the Nationals’ rotation as the playoffs get closer, and he is off to a good start.

Although John Lannan hasn’t had many starts, he has won all three games he has pitched with a 2.41 ERA. That has made the loss of Stephen Strasburg that much easier to deal with, and the Nationals like his next matchup again as Lannan gets the start opposite Josh Beckett for the Dodgers. While Beckett’s ERA has dropped down to 3.38 in four starts with Los Angeles, the team is just 1-3 in the games he has started, and it’s hard to imagine he can possibly be much better than he has been. Los Angeles has struggled to consistently put up runs even with the newest additions, and that won’t change against a pitcher they haven’t seen a lot of.

With the threat of a three-game sweep looming, the Dodgers will turn to Chris Capuano who was brilliant at the beginning of the season but hasn’t been able to maintain that level of consistency that is needed throughout the season. Los Angeles has given him some run support in his last two starts, both wins, but that came only after a span in which they lost six of seven. Washington will turn to Ross Detwiler with a chance to close out the online sportsbook series for a fourth-straight win, and while he has been good the Dodgers simply cannot afford to be swept in this series. Los Angeles will rally behind Capuano and steal one of the three games, although this series will be a huge hit to their Wild Card hopes.
