Start Time: April 16 2018, 7:10 PM
The New York Mets are off to their best start in franchise history and recorded a 3-2 victory against Milwaukee on Sunday. They’ll host Washington Nationals in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field tonight, and I think we’re getting a reasonable price on the home team.
Jacob deGrom (2-0, 3.06 ERA) will take the ball for NYM. He’s coming off a sub-par outing at Miami (gave up four runs through six frames), but held the Nats to a pair of runs (one earned) in six innings of an 8-2 triumph at Washington on April 5. deGrom is 6-4 with a 2.68 ERA in 13 career starts against the Nationals and has the current roster limited to a .213 AVG.
The Nats hand the ball to Jeremy Hellickson who will make his season debut. Hellickson is 2-4 with a 7.81 ERA in eight career starts against the Mets.
Washington has been outscored 58-38 during a 3-9 spell. A breakthrough is unlikely against the the hottest team in baseball.
Free pick on NY Mets.
