Preview

The Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets will play a 4-game series at the Citi Field in New York. The Braves lost their last series against the Rangers while the Mets beat the Phillies 2 of 3 times at home.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 10-13 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.91 runs per game with a .229 at bat while allowing 4.48 runs. Ozzie Albies is leading the team with 6 home runs and 11 RBI while Matt Olson has the better batting average with .291.

Kyle Wright leads the pitching staff with 3 wins and a 1.13 ERA and 31 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:

Max Fried (2-2, 3.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Atlanta in the 1st game of the series. Fried picked up the win in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Cubs, allowing one run on four hits over six innings. He struck out four without walking a batter. In his last 3 starts against the Mets he has a 2.50 ERA and 24 strikeouts across 18 innings pitched.

New Yor Mets

The Mets get here with a 16-7 record after beating the Phillies in their last series. The team is averaging 4.45 runs per game and allowing 3.09 runs. Francisco Lindor leads with 4 home runs and batting for .281 AVG whit 14 RBI so far. Starling Marte has 18 RBI.

Megill leads the team with 4 wins, throwing for a 1.93 ERA and 27 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:

Chris Bassit (3-1, 2.25 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. Bassitt picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals. He struck out six.

BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against NY Mets.

Atlanta are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

NY Mets are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games.

NY Mets are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Braves continue to struggle as they have lost 3 of their last 4 series but they'll send Max Frid to the mound who has been really good in the last 3 starts allowing only 3 runs in 18 innings pitched. The Mets have won 6 of their last 8 games at home and are looking unstoppable, they just scored 10 runs on Sunday against the Phillies. Bassit is coming from agreat game where didn't allow runs across 6 innings. With the Braves struggling to score and this pitching matchup, I think the best play is the under.

PICK: Under 7 (-110)
