Tough task for Ross
After a year without stepping on the bump, Ross immediately faces a daunting task with a Dodgers setup raking in so far. The 27-year-old didn’t have much success against LA, compiling a 7.02 ERA in 16.2 career innings.
Ross also barely pitched in Spring Training, throwing only 9.2 innings. It’s hard to know what we’ll get from the right-handed given his limited appearances over the past 12 months, but Los Angeles’ .407 average versus Ross is certainly not a good sign for the Nats entering this game.
Dodgers Stats vs Ross
The Dodgers have been very productive offensively in their first seven games. They score 6.3 runs per game, which is fourth in the majors. As a lineup, LA also hits a ridiculous .310, led by shortstop Corey Seager. The two-time All-Star is currently destroying baseball, going 11 for 26 with three doubles.
The Dodgers took three of the four against the Rockies to start the season and then went on to win their next series in Oakland. Dave Roberts’ team has outpaced their opponents 40-22 so far, a testament to how fundamental LA is both on the plate and on the mound.

Buehler starts at home for the first time
Buehler looked solid in his season debut in Colorado, pitching six innings of two-run ball while striking out four batters in Rockies. It wasn’t a typical performance for the former Vanderbilt high, though, in one specific way. His fastball averaged just 94.7 mph, significantly lower than Buehler’s 90s gear.
However, it was a good sign that he was not giving up free passes. Speed will return to where it should be as it is still very early in the season. As for Friday’s opponent, the right-wing didn’t pitch much against Washington, with a 3.38 ERA in 13.1 innings.
National statistics against Buehler
The Nationals haven’t had much luck against Buehler, but again, it’s a small sample. They are left without some key hitters like Josh Bell, Kyle Schwarber, Yan Gomes and Josh Harrison.
While DC won only one of the Braves’ three in their opening series, there were certainly some positives. They swung the bats reasonably well with two solid lefts on the bump in Drew Smyly and Max Fried, scoring 12 points in the first two games.

Trea Turner was a spark plug at the top of the line-up and already hit two bombs, while Starlin Castro put together some quality ABs as well. Buehler is definitely the best arm they’ve seen yet and it will be very hard to rattle the Dodgers bait.
Go with LA
Absolutely nothing against Ross, but I think he’s going to have a tough time with an LA offense that’s kidding everyone right now. Their stance is just too strong and his fight against them will continue.
As for the Nats, they won’t be very lucky from Buehler. He is practically unattainable at home with a 2.46 ERA, while striking out 10.8 batters per nine innings. Head here with the defending champions to cover the runline and get a win.
Select: LA Dodgers -335, -1.5 (-143)
