The Mets pitchers have really struggled so far this season, and don't deserve to be this big a fav here against the Nationals this Saturday. The Mets have lost 9 of their L/13 overall , and while the Nats data may not be much better they have been very competitive going 6-8 L/14 in 1 run tilts. Note: I know the Mets won yesterday , but that has not been a good omen for them of late as is evident by a 0-5 record in their last 5 games following a win. Nationals are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.
With left-hander Joey Lucchesi (1-0, 4.43) on the hill, the Nats look like viable dogs . He hasn't had a decision since his first start of the season on April 21 and like the rest of the Mets rotation has been underwhelming to say the least. Im betting on the Nats Williams who is 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA in six career starts vs. the Mets to keep his team in this and for the men from Dc to deliver to us a profitable investment option. LUCCHESI is 1-11 against the money line in road games with a team slugging percentage .390 or worse on the season (NL) in his career (Team's Record) WILLIAMS is 11-0 against the money line in home games vs. an NL team with an on base percentage .325 or worse over the last 3 seasons. (Team's Record)
MLB Home teams (WASHINGTON) - after a one run loss against opponent after scoring 3 runs or less 2 straight games are 120-65 L/5 seasons for a. 65% conversion rate for bettors.
Play on the Nationals
