The New York Mets are 24-35 this season and they have lost five of their last seven games.

Prior to that series, the Mets were swept by the Dodgers, lost two out of three against the Giants, and were swept by the Guardians.

Washington is 6-4 in their last ten games and they are third in the NL East behind Philadelphia and Atlanta.

Megill has allowed three earned runs and 10 hits in his three starts (16.0 IP).

New York Mets vs Washington Nationals Prediction 

New York won the first two games in their series against Arizona over the weekend, but they couldn’t keep that momentum and dropped games three and four. The Mets have been one of the worst teams in the MLB over the last few weeks, but their offense did start to get going in the Arizona series. Washington is just 10-13 at home this season, but they have played very competitively against the Braves and Guardians in their last two series. Washington is starting MacKenzie Gore, who has been lights out over the last month and I think he is the better option over Megill. My New York Mets vs Washington Nationals prediction is for the Nationals to get the win.
