MLB Betting Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Expectations in the Nation’s Capital have been high for a half decade, and 2018 is no exception. Management understands there are decisions to make with Bryce Harper, a free agent at season’s end. After taking three of four from Miami over the weekend, they finish out the first half away from home. Washington (45-45), third-place in their division play’s the (41-48) Pittsburgh Pirates, 4th NL Central on Monday, July 9, 2018. Right-hander Ian Nova will take the pitcher’s mound 4-6 with a 4.48 earn run average. Game time is at 7:05 PM EST at PNC Park on the banks of three rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Local Television Networks are broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Washington as a -115 road favorite. The betting odds total is Nine Runs for Monday’s contest.

Washington looks to extend their 2018 three-game winning streak over Pittsburgh; the Nationals hosted Pittsburgh in early May. The Nationals lost five in a row from the end of July until their recent homestand against Miami and rumblings are beginning in the Beltway. However, there is a bright spot in the midst of their poor performance at National Park, where they are two-games below .500. Washington is 7-0 vs. NL Central opponents this season, and they should be able to take advantage with four-games in New York looming before the break. Manager Dave Martinez understands fans frustration, but they would rather have them peaking in September rather than July, they have enough talent to turn it on at any time. Closing a five and a half game lead by first-place Philadelphia would make satisfy the staff. Having Max Scherzer and Harper would put any coaching staff at ease for a moment. Bovada.Lv, list the Washington Nationals at +1,500 to win the 2018 NL World Series.

The Pittsburgh Pirates no longer have the services of Center Fielder Andrew McCutchen or Pitcher Gerrit Cole and find themselves twelve and a half out of first-place in their division. Pittsburgh will host Milwaukee who holds the top spot in the NL Central for five games before the All-Star break on July, 15th. Outfielders Corey Dickerson and Gregory Polanco are swinging a hot bat for Pittsburgh with Starling Marte also being solid as usual hitting the ball. Second baseman Josh Harrison returned from the disabled list late last month, his services will be a need in the second half of 2018 if Pittsburgh is to make a run at the Cubs, Cardinals, and Milwaukee. Although the Pirates are above .500 at home, they are 1-7 their last eight and have lost seven of ten overall. Bovada. Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +8,000 to win the 2018 NL Central Crown.
