The New York Mets (14-11) host the Washington Nationals (9-14) for their third game of the series at Citi Field. The Nationals are coming off two consecutive wins against the Mets and will be looking for their third win in a row. However, we predict that the Mets will win and cover the -1.5 run line against the Nationals.
For the Mets, Joey Lucchesi will be starting the game. He has had an impressive start to the season with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. He has only allowed four hits and two walks in seven innings pitched. He will be facing Trevor Williams, who has a 3.38 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Williams has allowed 19 hits and four walks in 21.1 innings pitched.
The Mets have a better hitting line up compared to the Nationals. Pete Alonso is one of the league's top hitters with a .245 batting average, 10 home runs, and 23 RBI. Brandon Nimmo also has a solid batting average of .337 and a .449 OBP. The Nationals, on the other hand, are led by Jeimer Candelario with a .245 batting average, four home runs, and 12 RBI.
The Nationals have two players out, Sean Doolittle and Corey Dickerson. The Mets, on the other hand, have no injured players, giving them a full-strength lineup.
With the Mets' solid hitting lineup and Joey Lucchesi's impressive pitching performance, we predict that the Mets will win and cover the -1.5 run line against the Nationals. The Mets have been on a four-game losing streak, and they will be looking to bounce back and secure a win at home.
In conclusion, the Mets have a better chance of winning with their solid hitting lineup and full-strength lineup compared to the Nationals. With Lucchesi's impressive performance on the mound and the Mets' desire to bounce back from their losing streak, they will most likely win and cover the -1.5 run line against the Nationals.
Pick: Mets -1.5
