Money Line: +125 Washington

Sportsbook: JustBet

Result: Loss

4-unit Play Take #905 Washington Nationals over Miami Marlins (7:10pm EST) The Miami Marlins clearly have the pitching edge today against the Washington Nationals, but that's not enough to warrant them being this big of a favorite today. Jose Fernandez may be on his way to winning the Rookie of the Year award, but the Marlins still have the worst offense in all of baseball by a wide margin and they struggle once they get to the bullpen. Starting pitching is certainly important, but it's one of the most overrated aspects of baseball handicapping. The other team aspects (including fundamentals and defense) are significant and Washington has the edge in every other phase of the game. In addition, outside of one bad outing, today's starter Dan Haren has been excellent over the last six weeks. He should keep Washington in the game and give them a great shot and getting the win at a nice underdog price.
