Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets meet again to play a 3-game series at the Oracle Park. The Mets won their last series against the Rockies while the Giants were swept by the Padres.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 28-15 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.57 runs per game and allowing 3.5 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .306 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 10 home runs and 37 RBI.

Max Scherzer leads the team with a 2.54 ERA, 59 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Mets.

Probable Pitcher:

David Peterson (1-0, 1.89 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. Peterson performed well in his first four outings (three starts) with the big club earlier this season, posting a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB across 19 innings. Given the severity of Scherzer's injury, Peterson should have a decent amount of leash in the rotation as he rejoins the big club.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 22-18 record and have lost 4 straight games. The team is averaging 5 runs per game while allowing 4.35 runs. Wilmer Flores leads the team with 24 RBI and batting for an average of .260. Joc Pederson has 7 home runs.

Logan Webb leads the team with a 3.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts, recording 5 wins for the Giants. 

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Cobb (3-1, 5.61 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Cobb picked up the win, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out four in 5.1 innings of a 10-7 victory Tuesday in Colorado. In his last 3 starts against the Mets he has a 4.76 ERA and 17 strikeouts across 9 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Mets are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of NY Mets' last 8 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of San Francisco's last 12 games.

San Francisco are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Prediction

The Giants are on a losing streak and have scored only 1 run per game in their last 2 games, they also lost 3 of the 4 games in the last series against the Mets. The Mets have been profitable on the road so far this season with a 15-7 record. Alex Cobb has been shaky so the Mets shouldn't have any issues to score. The wrong team is favored here, take the Mets.

PICK: Mets ML (+122)
