Washington at LA Dodgers MLB Baseball Betting Lines, Odds & Vegas Predictions (10/09/19)
Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Matchup
A winner-take-all scenario that the Washington Nationals hoped for and the Los Angeles Dodgers would have preferred to avoid will occur Wednesday night in Los Angeles: Game 5 of the National League Division Series.
With Stephen Strasburg (18-6, 3.32 ERA in regular season) on the mound, and a berth in what would be the Nationals’ first National League Championship Series on the line, all of Washington is abuzz, especially after a disappointing opening two months that appeared to doom the team’s season.
The Dodgers also will have the pitcher they prefer on the mound: Walker Buehler (14-4, 3.26 ERA). But Los Angeles had to be hoping that the right-hander’s second start of the postseason would be in the NLCS and not in a must-win game so early in the playoff run.
After falling in each of the last two World Series, the Dodgers appeared determined to grab the ultimate prize in 2019. They won a franchise-record 106 games and stormed to a division title by 21 games. Now, the Nationals have L.A.’s title plans on the brink.
