Let's get this party started early.
New York Mets at Washington Nationals
In the National League East Washington Nationals have fallen below .500 and now trail Atlanta by 8.5 games. 3-7 in last 10 games. They managed a 1 run win over the Mets yesterday. The Mets are 4th in the East and 10.5 back of Atlanta, but right on back of Philadelphia and nipping on Washington's heels.
Dan Haren has been a bust this season at 4-11, team record 4-14, and it might be little better with home team record 3-5, but Mets are hot and Dillon Gee is pitching well. Beat Pittsburgh away, quality at Atlanta and only gave up 1 run last time he was in Washington in 10-1 win. The Mets 7-1 last 8 after scoring 2 runs or less, 7-2 last 9 as the under dog +110 to +150, 13-3 last 16 following a loss, 7-3 last 10 against teams with home winning record, Nationals 1-4 as favorite -110 to -150, 3-8 against right hand starters and 2-7 with current total. Fade Haren and the Nationals. Going with the road dog.
N.Y. METS at +130 for 1 unit(L)
Milwukee Brewers at Colorado Rockies
The Brew crew had been climbing by sweeping Miami, but took a set back against San Diego and away from Miller park they are one of the worst road team in the league. Tom Grozelanny for the Brewers, 1-4 team record 14-22, last 2 out of 3 was excellent. But the high altitude has not faired well and Rockies 20-6 last 26 against Milwaukee at home.
COLORADO ROCKIES -120 for 1 unit(L)
