Stephen Nover's Sunday Destroyer - 29-18-2 MLB!

Washington vs. Cincinnati, 06/02/2019 13:10 EDT, Score: 4 - 1

Money Line: -127 Washington

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Win

I consider Max Scherzer the best pitcher in the National League, if not all of baseball. Sonny Gray is a "C" level pitcher at best and that may be a generous assesment.

So I very much like this price point. Scherzer is having another strong year this season despite his 2-5 record. He has made seven straight quality appearances. Scherzer was 2-0 versus the Reds last season with a 1.50 ERA.

Washington has won 67 percent of Scherzer's past 58 road starts. The Nationals also are 4-0 in Scherzer's last four starts against Cincinnati.

Gray has a 4.18 in six home starts this season. He's vulnerable pitching at Great American Ball Park, which is a top hitter's park.

The Nationals have dominated the Reds at Great American Ball Park winning nine of the past 10 times.
