Free Betting Pick:
Neither team has been tearing the cover off the ball as of late with the Oakland A’s scoring 4 or more runs in 3 of their last 9 and the Washington Nationals once in their last 7. Both starters have been earning their keep with ERA’s lower than 3.00 on the season and there’s no reason to expect that to change this afternoon. Take Under 7.
