Washington will head to New York to face the Mets in a 4-game series starting on Thursday, they’re -104 favorites on MLB odds.

Sneak Peak at the NY Mets vs Washington Nationals MLB Betting Spread Pick & TV Info

Date: Thursday, April 30, 2015 Time: 7:10PM Venue: Citi Field Opening Line: Washington -104 Most baseball fans have spent the month of April wondering when the real Washington Nationals (8-13) were going to show up and start behaving like we all believed they would this season. The improbable win over the Braves on Tuesday may well be the first signs of life, with Dan Uggla turning back the clock to smash a 3-run homer to break the hearts of his former employer. Lest anyone get too carried away here, it’s worth remembering that the Nats pitching staff still managed to give up 12 runs to a Braves team that hasn’t exactly been swinging a hot bat in recent games. Stephen Strasburg (1-2, 4.88 ERA) will be the man on the mound for the opener versus the Mets, and he will have a tough time keeping a very solid Mets team in check. April has been a month to remember for the New York Mets (15-6), as they have a 4.5 game lead in the NL East, as well as being in possession of the best record in baseball. The Mets put together a magnificent 11-game win streak before dropping 2 of 3 to the Yankees. They have split their current series with the Marlins so far, and will be looking to win on Wednesday before they head back to the Big Apple for 6 games at home. Home is certainly where the heart has been for the Mets this season, as they are a perfect 10-0 through April. Jacob DeGrom (2-2, 2.96 ERA) will take to the mound for the Mets on Thursday. DeGrom was great through his first 3 outings, but was roughed up a little in his last start versus the Yankees.

It’s tough to see past the Mets on their home field. The last outing by DeGrom was more of an aberration than anything else, and I think he will bounce back nicely here to help lead the Mets to the win.
