Washington Nationals 2024 World Series Odds

Washington Nationals MLB Betting

Since their 2019 World Series championship, the Washington Nationals have had four consecutive losing seasons and lost at least 91 games in the past three campaigns, including 107 defeats in 2022. Washington cut payroll and has not been interested in spending big money for free agents, preferring to develop its less expensive talent instead. Washington plays in the mega-competitive National League East with such proven powers as the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies and a 2023 wild card team, the Miami Marlins. And then there is the free-spending New York Mets, who are a crashed stock that is due for a rebound. Gamblers have run for the tall grass as far as Washington and its 2024 future market prospects.

Washington Nationals MLB Betting Odds

In 2023, the Washington Nationals had a record of 71-91 and finished 5th in the National League East Division. Offensively, Washington ranked 21st for runs scored, 12th for batting average, 21st for OPS, 29th for home runs, and 12th for stolen bases. Defensively, Washington ranked 27th for earned run average, 28th for WHIP, 2nd for strikeouts, 20th for quality starts, 18th for fewest errors, and 27th for bullpen ERA. Washington was +2060 on the moneyline and +386 on the run line.

Last season, Washington stunned gamblers as one of the worst teams in baseball with one of the highest profit margins. Washington provided a great baseball betting lesson on value, especially in away games. The Nationals pulled off enough high-priced upsets to offset their usual losing. Gamblers that laid the lumber against the Nats were cleaned out in 2023. Oddsmakers could not put up high enough prices to draw action towards the Nats. Thus, the few who took the bargain basement prices on the Nats were rewarded.

Key offseason acquisitions: 1B/OF Joey Gallo, 3B Nick Senzel, RHP Dylan Floro

Key offseason departures: 1B Dominic Smith, RHP Andrés Machado

Washington ranks 23rd for MLB payroll.

The Nationals addressed their wish list for a lefty bat by signing Gallo, who also brings defensive versatility. The team also filled the vacant starting role at third base with Senzel. Washington showed its focus on the future by inviting its top prospects to Major League camp.

Which youngsters will debut in 2024? The Nationals will not rush their young talents for the sake of it but will top prospects like outfielders Dylan Crews (No. 7 overall) and James Wood (No. 14 overall) be ready for the Majors this season?

Washington is not applying much investment to several parts of its roster, especially a pitching staff that ranked near the bottom of baseball in both starter and reliever ERA. Josiah Gray and MacKenzie Gore are a decent start to a young rotation, but there’s ample space here and in the bullpen for veteran assistance.

Washington Nationals Key Players
