Washington Nationals vs New York Mets Prediction 

New York was able to pick up the win in game one of this series on Tuesday, and they are back to .500 on the season. The Mets are 22-25 at home this year, while the Nationals are 22-26 on the road. Washington has really struggled with their pitching staff recently and they will have Patrick Corbin on the mound, who has a WHIP over 1.50 on the year. New York is going with Severino, who started the season very strong, but he has been roughed up in recent outings. I don’t love the pitching matchup for either side here, but I do think the Mets can take advantage of Corbin and the Nats bullpen. My Washington Nationals vs New York Mets prediction is for the Mets to win by at least two runs.
