The New York Mets are traveling to Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. to face off against the Washington Nationals. The Mets are starting left-handed pitcher, Steven Matz. Matz is 0-1 this year with a 3.18 ERA. The Nationals have not yet decided on who they are starting on the mound.

The New York Mets are off to a very slow start, going 3-7 in their first 10 games and will need their pitching to be better if New York wants to win more games. The Mets batting is led by third basemen, J.D. Davis. Davis is batting .310 this year, to go with his 2 HR and team high 6 RBIs. If the Mets want to win, they need the bats to stay warm and for their bullpen to figure it out.

The Washington Nationals are starting their World Series defense slower than expected, going 3-4 in their first 7 games. The Nationals have been struggling hitting the ball this year and have not looked the same without Soto and Zimmerman in the lineup. Washington’s bat is led by second basemen, Starlin Castro. Castro is batting .360 this year and will need to keep getting on base to give the Nationals a chance.

Under 8.5 Runs

In this matchup I like the Nationals to win on the under. I like the under slightly more than the Nationals winning in this game though. The total has gone under in 12 of both of these team’s last 17 games. Both teams have been struggling this year and I expect this one to be a pitching duel. Final score prediction, Washington Nationals will win but best play is this under 3-1.
