MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Washington Nationals will look to knock off the New York Mets and further reduce their playoff chances, as the two meetup this Thursday in a matinee showdown at Citi Field.
It is now a 1-6 run for the Nationals in their last 7 games, as they have essentially lost all chances of a playoff berth even though the NL East has been a bit ridiculous this year, as it has been up for grabs all season long with nobody really establishing their dominance.
When you look at this team on paper they certainly should be a whole lot better then they have been, and with a few adjustments going into next year I can still see them being very competitive especially in this division.
Erick Fedde will be on the mound for this one and he comes into this game with a 5.15 ERA and a 4-8 record and he has not been all that good recently allowing 11 earned runs in his last three games.
New York Mets
The New York Mets have not exactly been crushing it as of late either going 2-9 in their last 11 games and it really seems like this Mets team is once again going to fall just short after being in such a good spot not all that long ago.
After their recent struggles they now find themselves two games behind the Philadelphia Phillies, but it just feels like these two teams are going in two very different directions, as the Phillies look like the favorites to take down this division.
The batting has not been amazing this year, as they rank in the bottom third in most offensive categories and now that Jacob deGrom is out the starting pitching has not been able to hold up either.
Trevor Williams has not been amazing this year with an ERA over 5, but he has some momentum coming into this game, as he is coming off of a great start against the Diamondbacks where he did not allow a run over 6.1 innings of work.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Nationals, although they have a nice offense on paper, have not been getting the job done and I do not think they are going to be able to score much here against a decent enough pitcher in Trevor Williams. I also think Erick Fedde could have some success here, as it is soft a matchup as you could ask for right now with the Mets really struggling to hit the ball, so I see this game going under the listed total.
