4-Unit Play. Take #902 Washington (-1.5, -120) over Atlanta (7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 3)
The Nationals got a big win last night against the Cardinals. I think that will carry over into today. Washington could have won all three games in that series in St. Louis. They also need every win they can get because they are fighting for a playoff spot. Atlanta has been the worst road team in baseball and one of the worst teams in baseball. They are just 21-47 away from Turner Field this year. This team traded away the few good players they had and are building for the future. They are throwing a young starter today. The Nationals are going with Jordan Zimmerman who has been very good lately. Zimmerman is a perfect 5-1 in his last five starts against Atlanta and he has dominated this team. The Nationals are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings and 10-1 in their last 11 home games against the Braves. Play Washington.
