Toronto vs Washington: Nationals Scherzer Aims to Blitz Blue Jays

Toronto vs Washington: Nationals Scherzer Aims to Blitz Blue Jays

Nationals ace Max Scherzer: Paying dividends in the District

Riding a personal five game winning streak, RHP Max Scherzer is proving why he was the biggest fish in the free agent pond during the offseason. Overall Scherzer is 6-3 with a miniscule 1.51 ERA and he has allowed just two runs over 29 innings pitched during his last four starts. Scherzer has a knack for turning out the lights in night games as he is 5-1 with a micro 0.82 ERA in six starts once the sun starts to set this season. Bryce Harper leads the Majors with 45 runs batted in and the Nationals are second in National League scoring with 230 runs – good for a 4.51 RPG average.

Toronto Blue Jays: Sticking with struggling converted reliever Marco Estrada

Moved up from his role as a relief pitcher due to injuries, RHP Marco Estrada (1-3 ERA 3.89) has struggled as a starter for Toronto. The Blue Jays have lost all five of Estrada’s starts in May and he has allowed 17 runs (16 earned) over 28.2 innings pitched. Toronto is 2-6 in games Scherzer has started though all of them were against the Detroit Tigers. Overall, the Jays are sporting a dismal 23-30 record but they are just 4.5 games behind the Yankees in what is a weak AL East Division.

Nationals vs Blue Jays MLB Prediction: As expected, Washington is thick chalk in the second half of this double-dip versus Toronto. Looking at the Five Inning odds posted at SportsInteraction, over Estrada’s last five starts Toronto has been outscored by a 15-5 margin (1-4) through five frames. On the flip side, in Scherzer’s last five outings, Washington (4-1) has won the first five innings by a 22-3 count. Looking to get some value out of the bloated prices on this contest, we are loading up with a 1000 unit wager on the Nationals Five Inning line posted at SportsInteraction.
