Team Outlook and Scouting Report

We have recently enhanced the site to feature Team Outlook and Scouting Reports that provide one of a kind insights into your favorite team's past, present and most importantly, future performance. Our Reports are updated daily in season and minimally weekly off-season and are geared towards fans who are analytical and invested ($) in their team's performance. For our latest power rankings, betting futures and the detailed Fantasy Player Scouting reports powered by our proprietary projection model check out the new Scout.

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Their odds to win it all are 16/1, 5.9% (#6). If futures lines were not heavily juiced, the Nationals would be a good betting value. Their 5.3% chance to win the World Series (based on simulations) is #5 in the league. In simulations, they win the NL 10.8% of the time and are not a good value at 7/1, 12.5%. The Nationals are averaging 88.1 wins per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 90.5 wins. At -105 the Nationals are a good value to make the playoffs with a 58.6% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 2/1, 33.3%. They win the division in 38% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #2 in the NL.

For winning picks against the spread, total and money line for all MLB games by our proven computer model and leading handicappers visit SportsLine.com where you can also get fantasy basketball and daily fantasy optimal lineups from CBSSports' Top Experts.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 56% of their games last season so their 94-69 met expectations. Against the money line they turned a +54 profit. They broke even against the money line. They were very good against the spread going 92-71 for (+736 profit). They went over 76 times and came in under 77 times. Based on computer simulations they only have a 41% chance to beat the Mets in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be slightly better. Since last season their average run differential is +0.93 which ranks #2 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #3. They are the #2 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #4 ranked team among home teams.
