This is a big game to start a big series this week. They are on the road but the Mets could overtake the Nationals for top spot in the East. They could also find themselves in third place if they are not careful as Miami is breathing down their necks. This is a big one too with Thor on the mound amidst a lot of questions about his health and future.
Even though the Mets are right there for a return to the playoffs they are struggling in the same area they were a year ago, scoring. It sounds like a broken record but it is still the story of the Mets and have them as a leading team to make a big move to acquire a bat like they did last summer with Cespedes – their only threat this season.
Syndergaard has been amazing this season. He leads the staff in all major categories and has done so in dominating fashion. The amazing thing is how much control he has over his weapons given how dynamic they are and how young he is. He just has to stay healthy and while any start could be awesome they are also going to have a quick hook if there is a twinge or something. It is buyer beware.
The Nats have been in a deep funk having lost seven in a row heading into Sunday’s action. Those have all been on the road so perhaps a return home will be exactly what they need. Most of the games have been close and like New York this team could really use a consistent bat to put them over the top. They might be middle of the pack in offense but it is too easy to navigate the lineup by pitching around a couple of key hitters.
Tanner Roark (don’t worry about pronouncing it) has been an unsung hero for the Nats this season. He has had the occasional bad outing but his consistency has been high this season. Two years ago he was brilliant and won 15 games so I think we can expect him to be pretty good too. He is 0-1 against the Mets this season but the Nats didn’t score any for him that day so you can’t really fault him – 2ER over 7IP is usually good enough.

Free New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Syndergaard can dominate this lineup but he has to be in the game to do so. My hunch is that this will be a short appearance our of precaution and once he is out of the game the chances for New York really diminish. They are not likely to smash their way to a big lead.
Roark’s ERA is nearly two runs better at home than on the road. Combine that with his experience against the Mets and we might have a home underdog situation that is too good to ignore.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Washington ML
Fading an ace like Syndergaard is not going to be a popular strategy but I like it in this spot. He is on the road and could be limited plus nothing is guaranteed with that lineup backing him up anyway My guess is the Nats are +110 too.
