Is It Time To Start Betting Against The Nats?

The once mighty Washington Nationals are struggling, is it time to bet against them?

The Nationals started the season as one of the favorites to win it all. They had 5-1 odds to win the World Series in the futures. Their predicted win total was set at 94.

Fast forward to now, the Nats are barely clinging to a .500 winning percentage with a 60-60 record. They are four games behind the New York Mets in the NL East. Winning over 94 games seems like a long shot with just 42 games left play.

The books have began to drop the Nats down the futures list. They are now down to around 16-1 odds in the World Series odds.

The Nats lost their last game against Colorado despite being -190 favorites. They lost nine of their last ten road games and are 3-7 over their last ten overall.

Their playoff hopes are looking dismal, as well. They are 8.5 games behind in the NL wild card race, so it is going to take a big turn around and soon for Washington to still have a chance.
