NYM (24-35) +105 o8.5 +1.5 (-200)
WSH (27-31) -125 u8.5 -1.5 (+165)


For this matchup, we predict that the game will go under 8.5 runs. Here's why:

Both starting pitchers, Tylor Megill and MacKenzie Gore, have been effective this season. Megill has a strong 1.69 ERA, and Gore has a respectable 2.91 ERA. Their ability to limit runs will be crucial in keeping the total score low.

The Mets have struggled offensively, with a team batting average of .236 and scoring only 249 runs. Similarly, the Nationals have not been explosive at the plate, with a team batting average of .230 and 230 runs scored.

Recent performances also support a low-scoring game. The Mets' last five games have seen a mix of high and low scores, but the Nationals have had several low-scoring games recently, including a 3-2 loss and a 2-0 loss.

Given the solid pitching and inconsistent offenses, the under 8.5 runs is a strong pick for this game.

Pick: Under 8.5 Runs (-125)
