Monday Major League Baseball action features an East vs West showdown when the Washington Nationals visit the Los Angeles Dodgers. The current line on top sportsbooks has Los Angeles favored at -130, with Washington on +110 and the over/under run total on 8.

Entering this game, Washington has a record of 35-20 overall and 19-11 on the road. The Nationals are 7-3 in their last 10 games played. Los Angeles has a record of 35-23 overall and 21-8 at home. The Dodgers in their last 10 games played are 7-3.

Washington arrives in Los Angeles after defeating a pair of teams in last place in the first two series of their three-series round trip. However, against the Dodgers the Nationals can prove why they have the best overall record in the National League.

Washington was knocked out of the postseason last season by the Dodgers and some revenge will be on the minds of the Nationals. This is the first of three games the two will play in through Wednesday.

Washington swept San Francisco last week in a three-game series and then scored 28 runs this past weekend in winning two of the three games against Oakland.

On Sunday, Bryce Harper returned after sitting out three games for his suspension due to a fight. Harper walked three times and scored twice helping the Nationals to an 11-10 win on Sunday.

Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman continues his quest to win the Triple Crown as he leads the league in batting at .375, in home runs with 16 and in RBIs with 48.

Los Angeles is tied for the best record at home in baseball at 21-8 and is 8-3 during its last 11 games overall. However, the Dodgers lost on Sunday to Milwaukee 3-0. Los Angeles beat Washington five times last season before defeating the Nationals in an NL Division Series.

Washington will send Gio Gonzalez to the mound on Monday. The Nationals left-hander is 4-1 with an ERA of 3.03. Los Angeles will counter with Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers left-hander is 2-5 with an ERA of 3.91.

During the Nationals current road trip, Daniel Murphy is batting .500 with one home run and 7 RBIs.

Washington is 6-1 in its past 7 games on the road.

Los Angeles is 5-0 in its past 5 opening games of a series.

With this free pick, we like Washington to win.
