Why Bet the Mets?

The New York Mets welcomed their former shortstop, and veteran Jose Reyes back to the lineup in the loss on Tuesday. Reyes will look to kickstart the lineup that has underachieved all season long. Yoenis Cespedes is the top offensive player for the Mets, with a .304 batting average, along with 21 homeruns and 54 runs batted in. The Mets are 28th in runs scored, and 26th in batting average as a team. The New York starting pitching has been lights out for them almost all season. The Mets have a team earned run average of 3.32, while they have recorded 50 quality starts.

Why Bet the Nationals?

Dusty Baker and the Washington Nationals have been up and down quite a bit recently. After winning six straight games, the Nationals have dropped three of their last four. Washington has four players headed to the All Star Game, with Bryce Harper headlining the names. Daniel Murphy, in his first season coming over from the Mets is batting a team high .347 on the season. Danny Espinosa leads the Nationals with 18 homeruns on the season. The Nationals starting pitching is second in all of Major League Baseball with 54 quality starts. Washington is also second in Major League Baseball with a 3.28 earned run average.

Expert Betting Pick & Prediction

This should be a pretty fun game between these two National League East rivals. The New York Mets are going to send their veteran right hander Bartolo Colon to the hill. Colon is having another nice season, and approaching 100 innings on the season. His 2.87 earned run average has been solid all season long. For the Nationals, they have yet to announce who will get the start. They are removing Doug Fister from the rotation for this start. Look for that to be a bad deal for Washington, and the Mets take advantage of it. The bet for this game is the New York Mets -150 over the Washington Nationals. The final score prediction is Mets 5 and Nationals 4.
