Washington Nationals vs Los Angeles Dodgers 5/29/2023 Analysis, Picks and Odds

On Monday, May 29, 2023, at 9:10 PM ET, Los Angeles Dodgers and the Washington Nationals will play in MLB action at Dodger Stadium in California. The Washington Nationals will prolong their road trip with a three-game series starting Monday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are leading the NL West Division. The Nationals lately played better baseball, despite being in last place in the NL East. The Dodgers are back in first position in the NL West standings and are on their way home following a 10-game road trip up and down the east coast. In the pitching matchup on Monday, right-handers Trevor Williams (2-2, 4.32) of the Nationals and Bobby Miller (1-0, 1.80) of the Dodgers will square off.

After a brief, six-game road trip, the Washington Nationals resume their travels as they take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Washington leaves for Los Angeles after defeating the Royals in a weekend series in Kansas City. After winning the first two games of the series by scores of 12-10 and 4-2, the Nationals had the opportunity to complete their first-season sweep on Sunday. The Nationals’ only three-game winning streak this season occurred in a four-game series against the Cubs from May 2 to May 4. The Nationals had a 2-0 lead heading into the seventh inning of the game on Sunday, but a walk-off single cost them the game, 3-2.

In the series’ opening game in Los Angeles, Trevor Williams, a righty, will receive the ball from Washington. Williams made 10 starts this season and finished with a 2-2 record, 4-32 ERA, and two solid starts. Williams has tossed 50 innings while allowing 49 hits for a 6.7 K/9 ratio this season. Williams has made five starts this season and is 1-0 with a 5.04 ERA while allowing 30 hits in 26.2 innings pitched away from home. Williams’ strikeout rate dropped from more than 22% last season to only 17% this season, while this year’s hard-hit percentage was only 35.6%.

  • The Washington Nationals are 3-10 SU in their last 13 matches against LA Dodgers.
  • The Nationals are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches on the road.
  • The total went UNDER in 14 of Washington’s last 19 road matches against the Dodgers.

Washington Nationals vs Los Angeles Dodgers 5/29/2023 Analysis, Picks and Odds

The Los Angeles Dodgers are back home following a rigorous 10-game road trip that included stops in St. Louis, Atlanta, and ultimately Tampa Bay over the weekend. The Dodgers had a chance to tie their trip record into Sunday’s early game in Tampa, despite being without two starting pitchers. After losing the series opener 11-10 to the Rays on Sunday morning, the Dodgers ended the trip with a 4-6 record.

The Dodgers will hand the ball to Bobby Miller, another prospect for their young pitching staff, in the opening contest of the series against the Nationals. In his Major League Baseball debut, Miller defeated Atlanta last week, pitching five innings while allowing just four hits and one run. Miller gave up just one walk while striking out five hitters, assisting the Dodgers in their 8-1 victory. Miller, the second-best prospect overall for the Dodgers, has five different pitches, including a fastball that can go over 100 mph.

Los Angeles’ bullpen relievers pitched in 19 save opportunities, recording 14 saves. They are sixth in the league with a 73.7% save percentage having employed 181 bullpen relievers this year. With runners on base and in high-stakes situations, their relievers entered the game 57 times. The LA relievers currently have a 25.6% inherited scoring rate out of their 90 inherited base runners. The Dodgers now have 29 holds, 49 save opportunities, and 5 failed saves.

  • The total hung OVER in 7 of the LA Dodgers’ last 8 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 11-1 SU in their last 12 matches at home.
  • The total went UNDER in 14 of the Dodgers’ last 19 home matches against Washington.

Washington Nationals vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Following their early 11:30 AM match against Tampa Bay on Sunday, the Los Angeles Dodgers will have the luxury of returning to their home turf in Los Angeles relatively early. Their opponents for their first game back will be the Washington Nationals, a team currently displaying solid performance but still residing in the last position in the NL East standings. Throughout this season, the Nationals have struggled to string together consecutive victories, having only achieved such a feat on rare occasions. 

On the other hand, Dodgers’ starter Miller showcased exceptional skills in his previous outing, successfully navigating his way through five different pitchers while displaying an explosive fastball. It is worth noting that the Nationals’ starting lineup ranks a modest 21st in baseball regarding runs scored per game. In contrast, the Dodgers’ offense has been a force to be reckoned with, having already launched an impressive 38 home runs in just 24 games this season. As the Dodgers finally return to the comforts of home after nearly two weeks on the road, one can anticipate a dominant and commanding victory. The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to emerge triumphant with a predicted score of 7-3.
