Today’s matchup is between the Washington Nationals (24-33) and the Tampa Bay Rays (39-23). The Nationals have won 2 of their last 5 games & the Rays have won 3 of their last 5 games.

The Nationals are starting Patrick Corbin (LHP), who is 3-5 on the season with a 6.28 ERA, 5.56 FIP, 0.375 wOBA, K% of 18%, BB% of 8.8%, 89.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.52 WHIP in 57.1 innings pitched.

The Rays are starting Shane McClanahan (LHP), who is 2-1 on the season with a 4.11 ERA, 3.24 FIP, 0.31 wOBA, K% of 30.4%, BB% of 7.2%, 92.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.26 WHIP in 30.2 innings pitched.

The Nationals are 18th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Rays are 11th.

On the hitting side, the Nationals have a .308 wOBA and a .317 OBP with 55 HRs. While the Rays have a .311 wOBA and a .315 OBP with 73 HRs.

The Rays should easily get the win in this game. McClanahan is pitching much better than Corbin at the moment and the Rays are the much better hitting team as well. I thought the line would be closer to -180, so at -159 I like the value!
