MLB Opening Day for the 2021 season is only a few weeks away. After a shortened 2020 season, all 30 teams are starting with zero wins and the singular goal of winning the World Series. The Washington Nationals will be one of those teams looking to take a significant leap this season.
The Nationals finished last season with a record of 26-34 and fifth place in the NL East. We will be taking a look at their win total for this season and discussing if they will be going over or under using odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
Washington Nationals Over 84.5 wins (-112)
The Washington Nationals are now two seasons removed from winning the World Series. Most of the key players from that team are still on the roster such as Max Scherzer, Juan Soto, Trea Turner, and Stephen Strasburg. That year they won 93 games, which would surpass their projected win total for this season (84.5).
This season, the Nationals are hoping that their WS core plus Patrick Corbin, Josh Bell, and Kyle Schrawber can lift them back into the conversation for the NL East crown. With their odds at even money -112, you cannot go wrong with either selection.
