A case could be made for either team here so maybe something small on the overs here. Neither pitcher has been untouchable, and both of these offenses have fared well all season against left-handed pitching. Both teams should put some runs on the board.

David Peterson (3.80 ERA) gets the start for the Mets today. Peterson's last start was the finest of his young career. He struck out 10 in that one, generating 22 swings and misses -- most of them with his slider -- en route to six innings of one-run ball and a win.
Patrick Corbin (4.76 ERA) on the hill for the Nationals today. Corbin is 2-0 with a 3.09 ERA against the Mets this year. In his final start of the regular season, he is looking for his first win since Aug. 10 (at New York).
Statistically these two teams are near mirror images of each other on both offense and bull pend, but I give the pitching edge to Peterson here today who is coming off of his best start of his young career.
The Nationals Park has an open roof so weather should be considered for today's game. It will be Mostly Cloudy with 65% cloud cover and a 15% chance for rain. The temperature is 70 with 76% humidity and winds at 7 mph SSW.
