Season series: Brewers lead 1-0 after a 7-0 shutout Friday.

The Nationals are reeling. They've lost 5 straight series. Pitching has been Washington's primary issue; a 4.99 ERA (28th MLB) has kept the Nats from being competitive.

The Brewers are a robust 13-5 in Cream City. Milwaukee's pitching has led that home dominance: the Brewers own a 2.47 ERA in their home yard (2nd MLB).

Run line/Against the spread

The Nats have played a significantly tougher slate so far, and the Brewers have a kind 9-3 mark in 1-run games.

The Brewers are the lean overall, but the price on getting the Nats within 1 run is solid enough.

BACK THE NATIONALS +1.5 (-120).

Over/Under

Milwaukee owns a well-below-average .668 OPS against port-siders. Woodruff is a solid pick to get on a decent roll this summer.

The back ends of both bullpens are in a good shape, and there is some around-the-margins downside to the Brewers' overall batting production.

BACK THE UNDER 7.5 (-107) but try to wait out a price closer to -102.
