New York Mets
The Mets are in a tight Wildcard spot race, currently sitting 9 games back of the division leading Nationals team they will square off against in Washington.
The Giants and the Cardinals are all within spitting distance of each other, so each game is a crucial one.
The Mets offense, as it’s been all year, is led by Yoenis Cespedes and his .293 average with 30 homers.
Noah Syndergaard owns a 2.48 ERA on the season with 195 strikeouts and a 1.14 WHIP on the year, his first full season in the majors. Bone spurs in his elbow caused for concern, as he struggled through parts of July and August, but he has still been an elite chucker all year.
The Washington lineup has received a huge boost since Trea Turner was called up from the minors. Turner has collected 79 hits in 230 ABs, good for a .343 average, along with 23 steals and 6 triples.
He looks every bit the top prospect he was pegged to be. The Nats have a firm grasp on first place in their division and will enter the post-season with lofty expectations.
AJ Cole owns a 1-2 record across his 4 starts this season, with a 4.56 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. He’s recorded 25 strikeouts in just 23.2 innings and is trying to steak claim to a rotation spot for next season.
Mark Melancon has locked down 11 saves since being acquired at the deadline from the Pirates, and now has a total of 41 on the year.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- New York is 7-3 in their past 10 games
- New York is 38-34 on the road this year.
- Noah Syndergaard has held opposing hitters to a .242 average this year.
- Washington is 44-27 at home this year.
- The Nationals are 7-3 over their last 10 games.
Free New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
This is a crucial game for the Mets and they’ll throw one of their best pitchers against a dangerous Nationals lineup.
While AJ Cole was never the top prospect that Syndergaard was, he still was thought of highly enough for the Nationals to re-deal back for him and has been efficient so far across his limited starts.
