The New York Mets and the New York Yankees will meet to play the Subway series at the Citi Field. The Mets lost their last series against the Padres while the Yankees beat the Orioles 2 of 3 times.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 66-31 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.36 runs per game. They're batting for .246 AVG, 520 runs scored in 802 hits and 165 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .294 with 37 home runs and 81 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.3 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. All-Star Nestor Cortes leads the pitching staff with a 2.48 ERA, 106 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded with the Yanks.
Probable Pitcher: Jordan Montgomery (3-2, 3.24 ERA)
Montgomery will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for New York. In the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Astros, Montgomery threw 6.1 innings and gave up two earned runs on seven hits, a walk, and eight strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision. He has a 0-2 record with an ERA of 7.11 and 18 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Mets in his career.
New York Mets
The Mets get here with a 59-37 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.66 runs per game. They're batting for .252 AVG, 447 runs scored in 820 hits and 93 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league tied with the San Francisco Giants. Jeff McNeil is batting for .300 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 25 home runs and 82 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.8 runs per game and rank #4 in the league. Chris Bassit leads the pitching staff with a 3.72 ERA, 115 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the NY Mets.
Probable Pitcher: Taijuan Walker (7-2, 2.55 ERA)
Walker will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mets. In the first game of the doubleheader on Saturday, Walker pitched six innings against the Cubs, giving up one run on four hits and two walks without influencing the decision. He is 1-3 with an ERA of 4.06 and 30 strikeouts in 6 appearances against the Yankees in his career.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of NY Yankees' last 10 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games when playing on the road against NY Mets.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of NY Mets' last 7 games against NY Yankees.
NY Mets are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the American League.
These are 2 of the best offenses in the league, the Yankees are #1 and averaging over 5 runs per game and the Mets are #6 averaging 4.6 runs per game. The Yankees will send Jordan Montgomery to the mound who has been up and down this season and the Yankees have lost in his last 4 starts. He has also struggled vs Mets in his career holding a 7.11 ERA against them. The Mets struggled in their last series vs Padres but woke up in the 4th game scoring 8 runs to win the game. Taijuan Walker will start for the Mets who has done a great job so far this season but has also struggled against the Yankees. The over has cashed big time in the last 7 head to head games so I think that's the nest play for this game. Take the over.
PICK: Over 8 (-110)
