Schule's MLB CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
Philadelphia vs. Washington,
04/02/2019 19:05 EDT,
Score: 8 - 2
Point Spread: +1½/-122 Philadelphia
This is an 8* play on the Phillies +1.5.
The Nationals will be a big favorite with Max Scherzer on the mound, but there is no doubt that Philly looks like the better team so far this season.
Scherzer was sharp enough on Opening Day, but it wasn't enough in a 2-0 loss to the Mets. The Phillies hand the ball to Zack Eflin, who looked sharp in Spring Training. He was 1-2 with a 3.54 ERA, striking out 18 batters in 20 innings of work.
The Phillies are 5-1 in their last six games following an off day.
