You might have missed it if you blinked, but the Washington Nationals have climbed to the top of their division and emerged as the National League forerunners. Now on a nine-game winning streak, they are 13/2 to win the World Series.

The Nationals paid their dues with franchise player Bryce Harper on the injured reserve list for much of the first half of the season, and now that the iconic outfielder is back in the lineup, the team can restore its image as one of the league’s hottest shows.
Harper hasn’t led the Nationals alone, and his modest .262 average and 23 RBI can attest to that. Players like Anthony Rendon and Denard Span have really stepped up and provided star offense for the club. Rendon’s 16 homeruns and 68 RBI pleasantly surprised the club.
The Nationals’ balanced offensive core is complemented by one of the game’s most intriguing pitching staffs. This weekend, when Washington hosts the San Francisco Giants, a wild card contender, we get to see Doug Fister, Jordan Zimmerman and Stephen Strasburg in action.
The Nationals have always been a compelling MLB betting option, but they’ve never lived up to the high expectations down the stretch. They’re just 61-64 against the spread in 2014.
That may change soon.
