New York Mets vs Washington Nationals Prediction

David Peterson wasn’t bad in his first start, but he’s not going to be good enough here. The Nationals send Trevor Williams to the mound, and he has been dominant this season. The Mets have blown way too many games this season, but they aren’t going to have a chance to blow this one because they are going to fall behind early. The Nationals are going to get the job done here. Back the Nationals on the money line to cash here.
