Penguin has two plays for Wednesday's game in New York City as the Mets take on the Nationals.
Capper Penguin's MLB Wednesday Best Bets: Nationals @ Mets - 4/26
Nationals @ Mets
The Mets have won their last 8 of 9 series vs the Nationals and there's no reason why they should lose this one. The Mets are better than the Nationals and it should show as they look for vengeance after a rough game 1 of the series at home. Kodai Senga has recorded a win in 3 of his 4 games this year and his best start by far was his only start at home this year when he went for 6 innings and only allowed 1 run. I see him getting his 4th win vs the worst team he'll face so far this season. His line to go 6 innings again is favorable on the over and the Mets are favored by -200 for the full game and first 5 inning ML.
The Mets haven't faced Mackenzie Gore yet, but he hasn't exactly been crushing this year and the Mets have won the last 3 of 4 games vs left hand starters. The Mets are overall the hotter team winning their last 8 of 12 games averaging over 5 runs per game where the Nats have lost their last 7 of 11 games averaging slightly over 3 runs per game. At the end of the day there is no reason the Mets should lose this game and they should win it by multiple runs.

Capper Penguin's MLB Play of the Day: Cardinals @ Pirates - 6/2
Pittsburgh HAS NOT been striking out early in their games and the only guy that has covered this line recently was Luis Castillo 5 games ago. Besides him, starters haven't hit this......
