The Washington Nationals are having a rough week, and I doubt things get better with Patrick Corbin on the mound. Corbin has been one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball the last few years, and nothing has changed this season. The NY Mets are playing some of their best ball of the season and have a chance to get a game above a .500 record. This is two teams heading in different directions. Give me the Mets and the RL for max betting value.
