The Giants likely aren’t getting the respect they deserve early on this season once again and yet they just continue to pick up wins. You’re still getting a nice number with them tonight on the run line, where they currently boast odds at -102, which is certainly worth considering.

Can the Nationals Play Spoiler on Giants?

The Nationals have gotten off to an extremely poor start to the season with a record of just 6-15. Josh Bell has continued on his solid play for Washington though and could be in line for a big series, where he boasts an OPS of .926 on the year.

Nationals Projected Lineup:

2B Cesar Hernandez

RF Juan Soto

1B Josh Bell

DH Nelson Cruz

LF Yadiel Hernandez

3B Maikel Franco

C Riley Adams

SS Lucius Fox

CF Victor Robles

Starting Pitcher: Aaron Sanchez

Will the Giants Beat up on Lowly Nationals?

The Giants went into the season with some offensive question marks but Joc Pederson has fit in like a glove with this team with he’s hit six home runs and OPS of 1.127. The Giants should be able to find a way to score runs off Sanchez tonight, who has struggled early this season but could be without Pederson who underwent an MRI for a groin injury.

Giants Projected Lineup:

RF Joc Pederson

1B Brandon Belt

DH Wilmer Flores

SS Brandon Crawford

LF Darin Ruf

CF Luis Gonzalez

2B Thairo Estrada

3B Jason Vosler

C Curtis Casali

Starting Pitcher: Alex Wood
