Prediction

Pick: New York Mets to cover -1.5

The New York Mets have been showing strong performances recently and have the home-field advantage. Despite Jose Quintana's inconsistency, the Mets' strong hitting lineup, led by Brandon Nimmo and Pete Alonso, should be able to take advantage of Jake Irvin and the Nationals' pitching staff. Additionally, the Mets' superior fielding should help them maintain control of the game. Expect the Mets to cover the -1.5 spread.
