Betting on the New York Mets (-1.5)
Regular Season Record: 64-37
The red-hot Mets are in the midst of a lengthy undefeated streak, as they have won all their six games, a span that includes a two-game sweep of the New York Yankees at home and a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins on the road. Taking the mound for the Mets in this upcoming contest will be no other than Max Scherzer, who brings a 6-2 record plus a 2.09 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. Mad Max was majestic in his last start, blanking the Yankees for 7.0 innings and striking out six in a 3-2 win at home on July 27. The Mets’ offense is slashing .251/.321/.407 this season.
The Mets are 6-1 in their last seven games away from home.
Betting on the Washington Nationals (+1.5)
Regular Season Record: 35-68
The Nationals are coming off a 5-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals to bring their record to 35-68, good for just the last place in the National League East division. Despite their glaring struggles to collect wins this season, it must be noted that the Nats recently pulled off two wins in a row over the might Los Angeles Dodgers on the road. Taking the mound for the Nationals in this upcoming contest will be Patrick Corbin, who might be dealt before the 2022 MLB trade deadline, so this could potentially be his last appearance on the mound in a Washington uniform. In his last stint on the mound, Corbin lasted just 0.2 innings after allowing six earned runs on seven hits in a 7-1 road loss to the Dodgers on July 27. The Nationals’ offense is slashing .246/.315/.371 this season.
The Over is 4-1 in the Nationals’ last five home games.
The Mets win, 6-0.
