Preview

The Washington Nationals and the New York Mets will play the 2nd game of the series at the Citi Field on Tuesday night. The Mets outscored the Nationals 13-5 on Monday and are now 6-2 against them this season.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 18-32 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.1 runs per game but allowing 5.2 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .299, 4 home runs and 28 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 9.

Josiah Gray leads the team with a 5.08 ERA, 54 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Nationals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Patrick Corbin (1-7, 6.30 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 2nd game of the series. Corbin allowed three earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three across 6.1 innings to earn the win Thursday against Colorado. He has 2 starts against the Mets this season and has pitched for a 2.00 ERA and 9 strikeouts across 9 innings.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 33-17 record and have won 6 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4.96 runs per game and allowing 3.85 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .317 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 13 home runs and 47 RBI.

Max Scherzer leads the team with a 2.54 ERA, 59 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Mets.

Probable Pitcher:

Trevor Williams (0-3, 4.37 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 2nd game of the series. Williams made his most recent appearance out of the bullpen Wednesday in San Francisco. With starter Thomas Szapucki getting tagged for nine earned runs over 1.1 innings before exiting that contest, Williams ended up saving the bullpen by striking out five over 3.2 scoreless frames.

BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games on the road.

Washington are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against NY Mets.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of NY Mets' last 7 games.

NY Mets are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Prediction

The Mets continue to be one of the hottest teams in the league and they have scored 8.4 runs per game in their last 4 wins. The Nationals will send Patrick Corbin who has been one of the worst starters in the season. Trevor Williams has struggled as a starter so the Nationals should get they average on this game. Take the over.

PICK: Over 9 (-110)
