At the beginning of the season the Nationals were one of the worst MLB bets overlays on the board. Washington lost star Bryce Harper to free agency and the losses piled up. Gamblers began to avoid the Nationals if not outright oppose them. However, Washington has finally gotten into gear. They have been one of the more appealing bets in the second half of the season. Washington is trying to chase down Atlanta in the NL East. By contrast the Dodgers have been a big money maker all season. Los Angeles has been running away with the NL West.
