Matchup/League Facts

  • The Washington Nationals ranks 2nd in the league for strikeouts against this season (716).

Randy’s Pick

The Mets are getting the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home and are supposed to be the better team. However, the Mets have been the biggest underachiever all year, and they’re just not a team I’m going to lay -250 juice. The Nationals are playing good ball over the last week, and Josiah Gray was an all star this year. We’re getting almost 2 times our money with the Nats. This doesn’t make sense from a value standpoint. Give me the road dog.
