MLB Betting Trends: Nationals Red HotBy Jonathan K.
This weeks MLB betting trends see the Washington Nationals as the hottest team in baseball, while the bettors looking at the total are looking to the San Diego Padres and Philadelphia Phillies.
Nationals Hottest Team
Washington is 9-2 over their last 11 games, including a come from behind win against Colorado this past Monday. They erased a 3-0 deficit to go over 5-4. They were -200 favorites in their last three games, which looks like a value at the moment given how much they have been winning.
However, a scary trend for bettors looking at the Nationals is Gio Gonzalez will be taking the mound in their next game in Colorado. Gonzalez is 1-6 in is last seven road starts.
MLB Betting Trends For Totals
The Padres can’t seem to find home plate over their last handful of games. Over their last six four have hit the UNDER which is the best UNDER stretch in the MLB.
On the opposite end, the Phillies have hit the over in their last nine games. A hugely impressive OVER run. Philadelphia hit the OVER in their last road game against the Dodgers and will return to SoCal for their next game where bettors are looking at the OVER again.
