OVER Tends to Follow Scherzer Around

The New York Mets’ offense isn’t doing much to help them gain ground in the National League East, but they’ll have an opportunity to halt their downward slide against the first-place Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 1-3 SU in their last four games against the Nationals.
  • The Nationals are 8-1 SU in their last nine games at home.
  • The Mets are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games against their division.

Logan Verrett and Max Scherzer are the probable starters for both teams. Verrett (3-4, 4.14 ERA) was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas last week and will be making his fifth start and 21st appearance this season.

Scherzer (8-5, 3.52) is giving up home runs at an alarming rate this year. The 31-year-old has surrendered 20 homers so far this season but has recorded double-digit strikeouts in three-straight outings heading into the tilt.

Scherzer is usually known as an UNDER pitcher, but that's changed this year. In the lefty's last seven starts, the OVER is 6-1.
