Randy’s Pick

The Mets are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they’re the better team on paper, they’re at home, and they have Justin Verlander on the mound. We get it. However, the Mets continue to disappoint, and now they’re starting to sell some of their players, which can’t help the confidence in the clubhouse. The Nationals have also seen 18.1 percent of their season’s wins come in the second half of the season. I’ll take a shot with the Nats and the big plus money simply to avoid laying juice with the Mets.
