New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
If the Nationals want to gain ground in their division, it would help to beat the team that is currently ahead of them. I look for this game to be a good chance for them to do that.
These teams to me seem to be about equal, but I like the fact that the Nats are playing at home. New York has not played well in this ballpark recently.
The pitching advantage goes to the Nationals with Fedde on the hill. When he pitched against the Mets last time, he was very good. I feel like he will do that again and the Nats will be able to hit Eickhoff enough to get a win.
I will take the Nationals as +105 home dogs.
