Dodgers vs Nationals Game 5 Prediction

This will be a great game. I am not saying that it will be a classic pitching match up. However, it will be close and both bullpens will be busy. I think both starters will be out before the 6th inning so if your betting on the starting pitchers. Make your bet a 5 inning wager. This game will come down to the bullpens and defense. Who will win? I have this game a 50/50 toss up. In other words take the dog. Not the most scientific bet but I really have the outcome as a 51-49 Nationals advantage. So, I will take the dog before the game and if the Dodgers get up early in the game I will make a “live bet” on the Nationals as a dog to lock in some money. I am betting on the Dodgers ML at MyBookie at +140 (Best odds available) and if the Dodgers go up early I will bet the Nationals money line at +125 or better.
