October 9, 2019 -- On the road, the Nationals has a 50.87% chance to lose to the Dodgers from our Snoozle montecarlo model.

Likely starting pitcher for the Nationals, Stephen Strasburg, will be paired with the hosting Dodgers's pitcher Walker Buehler. The Snoozle model estimates the Nationals pitcher will have an outing for 6.984 innings, allowing 1.827 earned runs, with 2.782 walks. The Snoozle MLB model estimates Walker Buehler will have 2.072 earned runs, a predicted 22.326 outs, and 6.059 strike outs.

Sluggers Anthony Rendon from the Nationals and Will Smith from the Dodgers will lead the their teams from the batter's box. Based on the Snoozle MLB model, Anthony Rendon is predicted to bat for 0.263 with 0.518 RBIs and 0.598 runs scored. Based on the Snoozle model, Will Smith is predicted to have 0.544 RBIs and score 0.428 runs over an estimated 3.583 at-bats.

According to the +140 ML away odds and an predicted 49.13% chance to win, the Nationals are the best value for the money line. For this game, the under is the best value; the model predicted a 51.38% over estimate and -102 line odds for 7.0 runs.
