Why L.A. Dodgers are a good bet at +120?
After the 10-4 beat down in Game 3, Los Angeles has no fear heading into Game 4. The Dodgers dominated Washington so thoroughly that they figure to enter Game 4 riding high on confidence. Los Angeles will start 39-year-old Rich Hill on Monday night.
Hill has a 2.45 ERA, a 4-1 record, and a 1.13 WHIP. Los Angeles’ bullpen has played well during the series. Hill mustn’t throw more than 5 to 6 innings. If he can do that, L.A. will be in a position to win Game 4.

Why Washington Nationals are a good bet at -140?
Nationals manager Dave Martinez had scheduled Max Scherzer to start on Sunday. He called an audible a few hours before the game and decided to start Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez performed admirably when allowing 1 earned run off 5 hits in 5 innings. Martinez’s miscalculation was sending in Patrick Corbin for .2 innings.
Corbin allowed 6 earned runs off 4 hits. After that, Martinez had to scramble. The move didn’t pay off, but it could pay off for Game 4, where Max Scherzer starts. Scherzer holds the Dodgers to a .168 batting average. That should be enough for the Nats to win this game.

Dodgers vs Nationals NLDS Game 4 MLB Betting Analysis
The L.A. Dodgers hope to end the series on Monday night, but it should be incredibly difficult for them to do that. Max Scherzer has dominated Los Angles in the past. More importantly, Martinez’s move of sitting Scherzer on Sunday might pay off.
The decision gave Max an extra day of rest. He should pitch deep into this one with Martinez bringing out all the stops if the Nationals find themselves down a run. The truth is that Washington has a real shot of pummeling Hill early. They hit left-handers well at home while Hill hasn’t had success versus the Nationals. Washington presents a great opportunity on the run line.
