Orioles and Nationals Meet in D.C. With Both Teams Playing Well
Nationals ready to overtake top spot in NL East
Trailing by a half-game, the Nationals can regain the top spot in the National League East on Monday night when they host the Orioles at Nationals Park. Stephen Strasburg will get the ball tonight with a 7-6 record. In his last start, Strasburg lasted 7.2 innings against Colorado, his longest outing of the year. He will look to piggyback off that success when he faces Baltimore tonight.
Orioles leading the pack in tight AL East
Baltimore has finally overcome Toronto in the AL East and have built a small, two-game lead in the division standings. Just 3.5 games separate the top three teams in this division. Baltimore knows it still has a long way to go before things will be decided, but they should be excited to see their name atop the division standings. Chris Tillman takes the mound tonight with a 7-4 mark, but an ERA of 4.21 on the season.
On Monday night, we are going to place our Major League Baseball bets at TopBet.eu, where the Nationals are favored to take down the Orioles. Based on this pitching matchup, we have to place our bets on Washington and Strasburg. We are going to drop 10 percent of our bankroll on Washington and the -175 money line as they keep pace in the NL East.
