WASHINGTON D.C. – The New York Mets are in Washington again today for game 2 of their opening four-game series of the season. While there are betting odds on the game, another form of action to get in on is the batting props for both teams.
Both teams are filled with great hitters along with good pitchers which makes the batting props here profitable if they hit.

Juan Soto Total Hits Odds
- Over 0.5 -176
- Under 0.5 +135
There is no hiding that Juan Soto is an elite hitter in the MLB as he leads the Nationals in batting averages. Many might be wondering though why online sportsbooks have given him just a 0.5 hit total. It is because he is going up against one of the best in the business in Mets pitcher, Max Scherzer.
Scherzer did not play in the opening game after dealing with a hamstring injury, however, he is ready to make his Mets regular-season debut. That alone should be a solid enough reason to fade Soto.
Lane Thomas Total Hits Odds
- Over 0.5 -132
- Under +102
Moving on to Lane Thomas, he struggles in the Nationals' first game going for no hits in three at-bats against the Mets. His batting average, to begin with, is also not where he might want it to be in recent years having only gone over .250 in two of his last four seasons.
With Scherzer now in the fold for New York, his struggles could certainly continue meaning another great chance to fade and take longer MLB odds.

New York Mets Batting Props
Starling Marte Total Hits Odds
- Over 1.5 +190
- Under 1.5 -257
Starling Marte has the highest hit total of any player in this game and for good reason. He is coming off of a one-hit game in their first against Washington and the fact that he is high on the batting lineup as well-meaning he’ll get his chances.
He had five at-bats in their first game and could see a similar number in this one. He has also been on a hot streak when at the plate going for a .300+ batting average in three of his last four seasons and has had 70+ hits in his last two.
Jeff McNeil Total Hits
- Over 0.5 -197
- Under 0.5 +150
Jeff McNeil is coming off of a great outing in the Mets' opening game having gone for two hits in four at-bats for a .500 average.
There is reason to believe that he could continue this into the second game, and he could move to the top of the batting order as well as a result of that. It is also worth noting that Josiah Gray is pitching for the Nationals today and McNeil was one of the top pitchers in spring training against right-handed pitchers.
