Picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: New York -180
Corbin takes the mound for the Nats and has been riding the struggle bus so far. His ERA is north of 7.00, and he hasn’t registered a win this year. Megill has been a bright spot filling in for New York’s rotation. Combining that with the Mets’ lineup is dangerous from top to bottom, and they have the rightful edge here.
Player prop pick: Pete Alonso over 0.5 hits (-235)
Alonso will look to take advantage of a good matchup against Corbin. In his career facing Crobin, Alonso is 11 for 32 with two doubles, four home runs and seven RBIs. He had three hits in his last game on Sunday and is coming off the team’s off-day on Monday. In Tuesday's game, Alonso is in a prime position to pick up at least one hit.
