New York Mets vs Washington Nationals: Free MLB Betting Picks & Game Predictions

The Mets set a pace between July 25th and August 10th if they won 15 of 16, but also have lapsed since the time and therefore so are trying desperately to stay in contention for a wildcard spot in the National League. The Mets are trailing four other groups for two of these wildcard berths, not involving the three division leaders, and defeated the Nationals 7-3 in the first of 3.
New York has won 11 of the 17 meetings between these two NL East rivals and will look to do so again now but the Nats have been in the driver’s seat with 77 wins over the year which would give them of the top wildcard seed when the season ended now. Met’s catcher Wilson Ramos will probably assume his regular duties behind the plate after becoming yesterday off and will look to continue his 25-game hitting series.
Last year’s NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom (8-8, 2.66 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) will take the hill after an uncharacteristically tough outing in his final appearance once he allowed four runs on five hits through seven complete innings in a 4-1 loss to the Cubs on Thursday. The righty has been virtually perfect in his three starts against the Nationals this season, allowing just 1 run over 17 innings combined where the Mets took two.
Washington will have a celebrity of their own hurling if the 2016 and 2017 NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (9-5, 2.46 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) proceeds to work today. The has seen limited action, tossing just innings over two starts in which he yielded a joint three runs on 10 hits and has returned following rehabbing a back injury.
As that range between -140 along with -129 home favorites in what must be a pitcher’s duel today the MLB chances are showing the Nationals. However, I can’t help but think as the Nats wish to make sure the merchandise aren’t damaged by them since the year rounds that Scherzer won’t be going more than five frames. That gives me a lean on the Mets now with Jacob deGrom pitching against a team which has had little success against him this year.
In addition, Scherzer hasn’t been at his best in the home as evidenced by his mark that is 3-4 at home versus 6-1 around the street. In a choice involving two softball pitchers, I will go with the fitter of the two and also one who will have his battery mate (Wilson Ramos) fresh and ready to roll after obtaining a reprieve from yesterday’s action. Grab the juiceinstead of laying it, and then back the Mets on your MLB picks in the showdown of pitching superstars of Tuesday.
Final Score: Mets 4 — Nationals 2
