Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Matt Adams (hip, back) grounded out in a pinch-hitting appearance Thursday against the Mets. Adams was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight day after taking a spill in foul ground Tuesday night, but obviously he's feeling much better. The Nationals are off Friday but don't be surprised if he's back in the starting nine for Saturday's 1:10 PM ET start.

New York Mets Fantasy Spin

Keon Broxton will get a chance to start versus the Nationals on Saturday. Broxton has been the odd man out in the crowded Mets outfield so far this season. He had just six at-bats through the team's first seven games. He's made the most of his limited chances, getting three hits and stealing two bases. Full Mets lineup: Brandon Nimmo LF, Pete Alonso 1B, Robinson Cano 2B, J.D. Davis 3B, Wilson Ramos C, Michael Conforto RF, Amed Rosario SS, Keon Broxton CF, Steven Matz LHP. They will be facing left-handed starter Patrick Corbin of the Nationals.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 1-4 in Steven Matz’s last five home starts versus the Nationals.

Washington

The Nationals have beaten the Mets in 53 of the last 74 meetings between these two teams in New York.

Prediction:

Patrick Corbin had a strikeout rate of nearly 31% last season and has dominated left-handed hitters. That’s noteworthy today as he’ll be facing a Mets lineup that offers no shortage of left-handed bats. On the other side is Matz, who has sneaky strikeout upside and like Corbin, benefits today pitching at Citi Field. The under is 4-1 in the previous five meetings between these two teams in New York and with the total dropping from 7.5 down to 7, I see this game turning into a pitcher’s duel.

The Pick: Nationals/Mets UNDER 7
