MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 0-4 in their last four Wednesday games. New York is 2-7 in its last nine road games.
The Nationals are 1-4 in their last five home games versus the Mets. Washington is 1-4 in its last five home games.
The Mets have been playing the better baseball as of late, but two wins came at home against Miami followed by another with a filthy Syndergaard on the mound. Tonight, the Nats have the clear pitching advantage and are desperate to get something positive going on the season. Expect Washington to get to Font early as he has not had a good track record at the MLB level despite having strong stuff. Go with the favorites here.
