New York is 12-5 in their last 17 Monday games and 3-8 in their last 11 road games. The under is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 games. Washington is 6-14 in their last 20 game four’s of a series and 18-60 in their last 78 games against the NL East. The under is 5-0-2 in Washington’s last 7 Monday games. New York is 25-11 in these two teams last 36 head to head meetings.


New York was able to rally for a big win on Sunday afternoon, but they have struggled this season and are only 20-21. Washington only has 17 wins on the year, but they have played decently well over the last week. The Nationals are starting Patrick Corbin, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. The Mets are starting David Peterson, who has allowed four earned runs or more in four straight starts. I think the Mets are going to carry their momentum from Sunday afternoon into this game and I like them to win here.
