The Washington Nationals will be looking for another big performance here against the Mets, as they were made to look a bit silly by Jacob deGrom in their first match of the series and are no doubt hungry to win this series, as they prepare for the rubber match.
A lot was hoped for this team coming into the 2021 season, but it just has not gone their way so far and the injury to their star slugger Juan Soto is doing them no favors, as he is impossible to replace in the heart of that batting order.
The Nationals do have the feeling of a team that will make a late charge, as they have been unlucky so far this season, and when they do get healthy they have all the pieces in place already to be legitimate contenders.
Patrick Corbin getting the start likely does not bring a ton of confidence though, as he enters this contest with an ERA over 10, but he does have some good stuff and the Mets have struggled with their bats this year, so he may very well still be able to put up a quality start here.
New York Mets
The Mets are another sneaky team, as I am significantly higher on these guys then most other baseball fans and they realistically can get ahead of almost anyone if they are in a playoff format, as they have the best pitcher in baseball at the moment.
They will need to get into the playoffs first though, before they worry too much about their pitching strategy in the postseason, and if they are to get there they will need to beat teams like Washington who are in a bit of disarray at the moment.
Taijuan Walker has been solid so far this year and he gets the start here against the Nationals and he should like his chances of getting his first win of the season in this spot, as he has been good against much better batting lineups this year.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The New York Mets represent decent enough value here, as I expect things to get pretty ugly for the Nationals without Soto and with Walker on the mound -150 seems very fair. If you are looking to get a big + money price here I would not be opposed to taking the Mets on the runline, as I expect Walker to be able to go deep, and the Mets should be able to score on the Nats here.
