The Over is 7-0-1 in the Nationals’ last 8 interleague games against a team with a winning record. Expect this trend to continue on Monday as Washington enters the contest hot, having won seven of eight after a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Furthermore, the Over is 6-0 in the Orioles’ last 6 interleague road games.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Chris Tillman (7-4, 4.21 ERA) vs. Nationals RH Stephen Strasburg (7-6, 3.53)
Tillman has never pitched in Washington, and has a 6.52 ERA in two no-decisions against the Nationals. Washington’s offense will capitalize on Tillman being out of his comfort-zone.
Strasburg remains inconsistent having rebounded from his worst start of the year to toss 7 2/3 solid innings against Colorado on Tuesday. The Over is 6-0 in Strasburg’s last 6 starts during game 1 of a series.
