New York Mets vs Washington Nationals Betting Pick

Pick: Mets to win -145

Why bet the Mets?

📣Max Scherzer (R) vs. Jacob deGrom (R)

✅ This is a very tough game to predict as Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are two of the best pitchers in the entire league. With that being said, deGrom is on a bit of a different level at this point and he finally has an offense to back them up. This is going to be a great game, though the Mets look like the better overall team.

✅ The New York Mets are on to a new era and the new ownership has been willing to spend money like the past owners weren’t. This means Jacob deGrom will actually be able to win some games, as he’s been tormented in the past by a terrible offense. That’s not longer the case and I like the Mets to put up a few early runs over Scherzer. deGrom should hold the Nationals to two or fewer runs in seven innings, so I will side with the Mets here.

✅ This total is just too low. While Scherzer and deGrom are two of the best pitchers in the entire league, they are also facing off with two very dangerous offenses and both of these guys have had HR issues in the past. 6.5 is just a bit too low and I am willing to bet the over up to seven points. I would rather bet the Mets, but do like the over quite a bit.

✅ The New York Mets are 8-3 in their last 11 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

✅ The Washington Nationals are 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday games.

General Info about Washington Nationals vs New York Mets

Who is the Starting Pitcher for the Washington Nationals?

The Nationals will toss lethal right-hander Max Scherzer at the Mets, and he will give them problems from the get-go. While he’s starting to get up there in age, Scherzer remains one of the best starting pitchers in the entire league. He held both lefties and righties to a sub-.300 wOBA and is still striking out over a batter per inning.

Who is the Starting Pitcher for the New York Mets?

The Mets will be tossing Jacob deGrom, who is regarded as many as the best pitcher in the entire MLB. In past seasons, he’s been bit in the rear by the Mets terrible offense. That will no longer be the case and deGrom will be able to show off his tools without worrying about not getting a single run for protection. Against a tough Nationals lineup, deGrom will have a tough game to open things up.

Nationals vs Mets Run Line Predictions

A very popular wager to place in MLB betting is the run line, which sets a spread on the game. That spread is almost always (-1.5) and (+1.5) points, giving both teams a bit of alternate odds. This is a very opular wager to place on a large favorite as it can make the odds a lot more appealing.

For example, let’s say the New York Mets are hypothetically favored in this matchup. That would put a (-1.5) next to their name and they would be forced to win the game by two or more runs to cash a bet. On the other hand, a (+1.5) next to the Nationals would call for either a win by any margin or a loss by a single run.

Depending on the game, this can be a wager to ignore or one to focus on. We will make sure to let you know where this one falls above, where you can find the best possible Nationals vs Mets run line predictions.

New York Mets vs Nationals Over/Under Betting

When you don’t know which team has an advantage when it comes to winning the game, you can elect to wager on the over/under. This involves picking whether the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies will combine to score more or less than a certain amount of runs. That number is set by the sportsbook and subject to change as action comes in heavier on one side than the other.

Using a similar example as above, let’s say the National vs Mets over/under is set to 9.5 runs. In that case, a wager on the over would call for 10 or more total runs while a bet on the under would ask for nine or fewer total runs between the two teams. This can seem like a simple wager, but you must put the time in to make sure you have things straight.
