Pick based on Asian handicap. Not familiar with handicaps? Read our Asian handicap betting guide
Washington have been batting better all season (AVG of 0.245 vs 0.232), last 7 games not much a difference there - another point is that while the nationals like to bat against left handed pitchers (3.9 - 3.2 runs in average), the cubs don't enjoy that much games against Right handed pitchers.
The bullpen will play a part tonight because both of the starting pitchers will stay in the game 5,6 innings, and in here the nationals have been a lot better (ERA of 2.71 vs 4.46), so if anything the starting pitcher difference will only be even bigger in the last innings.
D Fisher (washington) has been a better pitcher then Wood (Cubs) all season (ERA of 2.65 vs 4.55) and in the last 7 games also a better pitcher (ERA of 1.71 vs 2.79), the thing is while Fisher is a quite stable pitcher, very regular, doesn't do a lot of SO, but doesn't allow a lot of BB (good control), Wood can make some decent games and then blew it completely, he doesn't show a lot of control, and against a team like the nationals that can be paid dearly.
