On the hitting side, The Giants have a .324 wOBA, .324 OBP, .422 SLG, .746 OPS, 107 wRC+, & 88 HRs. The Nationals have a .307 wOBA, .317 OBP, .382 SLG, .699 OPS, 92 wRC+, & 55 HRs.

There's no doubt the Giants are the better hitting team but Scherzer is pitching at a high level. Not a huge fan of -160 on the Nationals though, thought they'd be closer to -120. That said I'm taking the Giants due to the value at +136.
