Baseball odds favor the New York Mets on Saturday as they visit the Washington Nationals. It is the second game of a three-game series between the two teams.
The Mets are favored in baseball betting odds in this game for good reason as they have the better team and they also have the trends in their favor.
Baseball odds trends tell us that the Mets had won 13 of the last 20 games against the Nationals before this series began yesterday. The Mets have been even better at Washington as they had won 7 of the last 10 versus the baseball odds.
The Mets have been just about a .500 team on the road this season versus the baseball odds at the sportsbook. New York has been winning this season with a solid pitching staff and an offense that is just outside the Top 10 in the league. The problem for New York is that they are not that deep on the pitching staff beyond Johan Santana. The Mets also don’t have a lot of depth on offense either and that could be a concern in the baseball odds as the season progresses.
Washington has simply been bad both at home and on the road against the baseball odds. They can sometimes score some runs with an offense led by Adam Dunn but their pitching is simply weak. It is young though and that means it should get better as the season progresses. The future may be bright but the reality right now is that the Nationals are going through growing pains and that makes them a risk if you are wagering on them in baseball odds at the sportsbook.
Betting the sports betting baseball odds total over has been the way to go when these two teams meet in Washington. Seven of the last ten games at Washington between the two teams have gone over the baseball betting odds. This number is somewhat surprising considering the teams go under when they meet in New York. It is also a bit puzzling considering neither team has a great offense. It sure happened a lot last year though. The teams played three series in Washington and more often than not the games went over the sports betting total and most of the time it wasn’t even close. Four times the teams combined for 12 or more runs.
