Washington Nationals vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions: Nationals and Blue Jays Face Off in Deciding Game of Three-Game Series

The Washington Nationals and the Toronto Blue Jays are set to clash in the final game of their three-game series at Rogers Centre on Wednesday. With both teams fighting for a spot in the playoffs, this rubber match promises to be a thrilling encounter.

Nationals Bounce Back As Big Underdogs:

The Washington Nationals managed to secure a narrow 5-4 victory in the second game of the series against Toronto, despite facing a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the bottom of the 9th inning. This win improved the Nationals’ record to 62-71 for the season, leaving them 25 games behind in the NL East but only 7.5 games back in the NL Wild Card race. Lane Thomas has been a key player for the Nationals, leading the team with 146 hits, 20 home runs, and 69 RBIs. Joey Meneses is also having a strong season, boasting a .284 batting average and a team-high 76 RBIs. Both Thomas and Meneses have recorded a team-high 32 doubles, while CJ Abrams and Luis Garcia have contributed with four triples each this season. Patrick Corbin is set to start for the Nationals and has a 9-11 record with a 4.70 ERA and 104 strikeouts this season.

Washington Nationals Player Prop Facts:

  • CJ Abrams is tied for 4th in the league in steals this season with 38.

Blue Jays Fall Short On Tuesday: The Toronto Blue Jays had an opportunity to secure a vital win in the AL Playoff race but came up short in the second game of the series against the Nationals. This loss brought their record to 72-61 for the season, putting them 3.5 games behind in the AL Wild Card race and 11.5 games back in the AL East. Bo Bichette has been a standout player for the Jays, leading the team with 152 hits, a .314 batting average, and 18 home runs. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has also been impressive, recording a team-high 20 home runs and 79 RBIs. Matt Chapman has contributed significantly with a team-best 36 doubles but also leads the Jays with 148 strikeouts. Chris Bassitt is the scheduled starter for the Jays and has a 12-7 record with a 4.00 ERA and 148 strikeouts this season.

Toronto Blue Jays Player Prop Facts:

  • Chris Bassitt is tied for 8th in the league for wins this season with 12.

Matchup/League Facts:

  • The Toronto Blue Jays rank 2nd in the league for ERA this season (3.72).
  • The Toronto Blue Jays rank 2nd in the league for strikeouts this season (1249).
  • The Washington Nationals rank 30th in the league for home runs allowed this season (202).
  • The Washington Nationals rank 29th in the league for home runs this season (121).

I am leaning towards the Blue Jays -1.5 in this matchup. Chris Bassitt has been strong against the Nationals in the past, owning them in two starts as a Met in 2022, and has performed better at home this season, sporting an ERA just over three. Patrick Corbin has had some good outings, but he has also been inconsistent and is capable of getting hit hard whenever he takes the mound. I believe the Blue Jays will secure a much-needed win in this game, so I am backing Toronto -1.5 to cut down the heavy juice.
