Why L.A. Dodgers are a good bet at +108
Roberts has a lot of flexibility because he’s got one of the top starting rotations in baseball. Ryu’s ERA is 2.32. His away ERA is 2.72. Because Ryu’s average allowed in away games is .253, he shouldn’t have too much trouble handling the Washington Nationals in Game 3 on Sunday. The Dodgers have a real shot of wrestling back homefield advantage. They won’t let the opportunity slip away.

Why Washington Nationals are a good bet at -124
The Nationals, like most teams in MLB, play better at home than they do on the road. Washington not only plays better at home, but they played well against the Dodgers during the regular season. Although the Dodgers beat the Nationals 4 games to 2 in the 6 battles, the Nats won one of the games with Max Scherzer. The Dodgers got a feel for Scherzer when he pitched a scoreless inning in Game 1. That took nothing out of Max. He should be ready to roll on Oct. 6

NLDS Game 3 Dodgers vs Nationals MLB Betting Analysis
With both teams throwing out an ace for Game 3, the battle should come down to the bullpens. Washington doesn’t have much of a bullpen while the Dodgers’ ranks fifth with a 3.85 ERA. Just based on that stat, it sure looks as if the L.A. Dodgers are ready to take Game 3 on Sunday.

However, a deeper look is required. Washington manager Dave Martinez used Strasburg in Tuesday’s victory over the Brewers. He started Strasburg in the Game 2 win and pitched Scherzer for an inning. Martinez could use one of his listed starters, Patrick Corbin most likely, who threw in Game 1, for an inning or two in relief of Scherzer. If Scherzer and Corbin are on their games, the gambit might work. Take the Nationals to go up 2-1 over the Dodgers.
