The Dodgers ride an 8-game win streak into their series with the team with the worst record in MLB, the Washington Nationals. Handicapper Jason Radowitz gives us his Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals prediction and pick for Monday.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals Prediction: Can We Bank on Freddie Freeman and the Dodgers Bats?

The Los Angeles Dodgers came out of the All-Star break and defeated the San Francisco Giants four straight times to extend their winning streak to eight games. Their home series against the Giants wasn't easy, but the Dodgers made it look easy in the second half of each game.

Now they'll take on a much easier opponent in the Washington Nationals, who are just 32-65 on the season. Can the Dodgers extend their eight-game winning streak to nine? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Monday's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals Prediction

The All-Star starter Tony Gonsolin will take the hill for the Dodgers tonight. Gonsolin was actually the losing pitcher in the All-Star game after putting together the worst inning by a National League pitcher. But put that aside. He's got an 11-0 record with a 2.02 ERA on the season. He has more losses in All-Star games than in actual games this season.

However, in the last 30 days, he has had a 4.33 xFIP. Things might be catching up to Gonsolin. He's allowing 37.5% of hard contact and only induced 40.3% of ground balls on the mound in the last 30 days.

Gonsolin has also given up a .184 ISO to his last 52 righties faced this year. But he'll take on a Nationals lineup that has earned a .150 ISO and wOBA of .304 in the last 30 days against righties. Without Juan Soto and Josh Bell, this Washington lineup would look completely lost. Soon Bell and (potentially) Soto could be on different teams at the trade deadline.

On the flip side, Paolo Espino will take the hill for Washington. Unlike Gonsolin, he's yet to earn a win this year but still has a 3.57 ERA on the season. Espino has a 5.38 xFIP in the last 30 days but has only earned 18.6% of strikeouts. He won't induce a high amount of grounders and has given up plenty of hard contact in the last 30 days.

He'll take on a Dodgers lineup that is hitting a .210 ISO and wOBA of .246 in the last 30 days against righties. The Dodgers have also smacked over 23% of line drives and have hit under 40% of ground balls in that time frame.

Look for the Dodgers to do damage early against Espino in tonight's game. I'm not going to bother betting for or against Gonsolin. I think he's trending downward, and I don't want any part of him. But I'll take the Dodgers to score runs, especially in the first five innings.
