Context

In a battle of first place teams, the Nationals will host the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Washington has scored 173 runs to start the season, the most in baseball. Arizona has tallied the second most runs (147) after one month.

The total for this game opened at 8 runs. With two high scoring teams, should you bet the OVER or the UNDER?

If you are a frequent reader of the Trend of the Week you know we preach contrarian strategies. The OVER is 30-21 in games played by Washington and Arizona this season and OVER bettors have gone 8-0-1 in the Nats last nine games. The public is going to continue betting the OVER, which means it’s a great time to take the UNDER.

Trend

Contrarian UNDERs for winning teams.

This Pro System has gone 1118-922 (55%) on the UNDER, +157.44 units all-time.

Our Pick

At the time of publication, more than 80% of the money wagered was on the OVER. We know what side the public is taking. The squares like the OVER because the Nats and D-Backs are two high-scoring winning teams, be contrarian and bet the UNDER.
