There are certain games over the course of the season in which the oddsmakers just flat out get a line wrong, and in this case, they are absolutely just incorrect with the way that they lined this one on the MLB betting odds. RHP Dan Haren has been a nightmare this season, and there is no way that he should really even be pitching in the majors. He’s is pitching at the level of a below replacement player at the moment, and he has guided the team to 11 straight defeats. We haven’t even made mention of the fact yet that the team around him has only scored two runs or fewer in seven out of nine games, including scoring a grand total of two runs in two games on Friday night. RHP Dillon Gee isn’t the type of man that you would want to back all that often just based on his raw season stats, but he hasn’t allowed an earned run in two straight starts, and he really has his mojo working at this point. Remember that the Mets are actually a game above .500 this season on the road, and that’s something that definitely deserves some credibility. Gee too, is 6-1 in his career against the Nats, and that is the final straw that proves to us that this line is so far off that the wrong team is favored.
