It’s Max Scherzer day for the Nationals which is why Washington is a -230 favorite on Wednesday despite starting off 2020 with a 4-4 record.
The Mets look to be in a rough spot vs. Scherzer and for the fact that New York has gone 4-8 on this young season. New York goes with Rick Porcello, who has struggled on this young season to say the least.
New York Mets
The Mets are a very unpredictable team to gauge so far through their first 12 games of the year. Look at the last series for Atlanta as an example, New York won 7-2 on Monday, but lost 10-11,1-7, and 0-4 the three games prior.
Taking away New York’s seven run output on Monday, this is a Mets offense that is struggling. New York has been held to four runs total in 3 of the last 4 but have hit a decent .234 vs. Scherzer.
Where the Mets really run into trouble on Wednesday is with Rick Porcello on the bump. The 2016 Cy Young winner has allowed 6 ER and 3 ER over two starts – but in just 6.0 IP total.
Washington has great value with Scherzer on the mound on Wednesday. The right-hander hasn’t picked up a win yet in two starts, but is coming off an 8 inning shutout vs. Toronto last time out.
Scherzer has 21 strike outs through games while pitching just 12.2 innings in two starts. Scherzer had a 3.46 ERA in four starts vs. New York last season.
Washington was able to capture the opener 5-3 over the Mets on Tuesday. It was a great win for the Nationals who are trying to get out of the rut that saw them go 7-12 against New York last season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Nationals are 1-7 last 8 home games
- Nationals are 53-22 last 75 games as a favorite
- Mets are 8-2 last 10 head to head meetings
Free New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Unfortunately there’s just no value on Washington when Scherzer pitches. As great as he has been through two starts though, the under is affordable.
