Washington Nationals MLB Betting

Although the Washington Nationals won the 2019 World Series, many fans and gamblers saw it as an accidental fluke. The Nationals were dead and buried at the midway part of the season before rallying for an incredible run that ended up with the Commissioner’s Trophy. Last year, Washington receded back to where many observers thought they belonged all along. The Nationals finished with a losing record for the first time since 2011 and were not good enough to qualify for the pandemic expanded postseason. This year the Nats are not considered to be a serious contender in a National League East that is expected to be dominated by the Atlanta Braves.

2021 Season Preview

The 2020 Washington Nationals finished 26-34 with 32-25-2 over the total. The Nats finished fourth in the National League East Division. Washington compiled MLB metrics of 10th for run production, 4th for batting average, 10th for OPS, 21st for home runs, and 9th for stolen bases. On the hill, the Nationals had plenty of problems. Washington ranked 26th for staff earned run average, 29th for WHIP, 16th for quality starts, and 23rd for the bullpen.

Washington begins the 2021 season with the eighth highest payroll in Major League Baseball. General manager Mike Rizzo traded for first baseman Josh Bell after he dropped significantly in production last year in a case of buying low. Rizzo also gambled on Kyle Schwarber being able to play left field instead of designated hitter. He also addressed his bullpen with closer Brand Hand replacing Sean Doolittle.

Manager Dave Martinez was a journeyman major league player from 1986 through 2001 and led the Nationals to their first and only World Series title. He was on the staff of the Chicago Cubs when they won the 2016 World Series.

For the 2020 season, left fielder Juan Soto was one of the few bright spots for the Nats. Soto hit .351 with a 1.185 OPS to go with 39 runs, 14 doubles, 13 home runs, and 37 runs batted in.

Number one starter Max Scherzer is a five-time NL All-Star and two-time NL Cy Young Award winner. Scherzer was 5-4 with a 3.74 earned run average and 1.38 WHIP last season.
