Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets will play the 3rd game series at the Oracle Park on Wednesday. The Giants took the win 13-12 to tie the series. Joc Pederson homered 3 times.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 29-16 record and have won 5 of their last 7 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 11 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:

Thomas Szapucki (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 3rd game of the series. Szapucki will likely just be making a spot start before returning to the minors, as the Mets had to temporarily transition to a six-man rotation as a result of their doubleheader with the Rockies last weekend.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 23-19 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 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 10 home runs.

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

Probable Pitcher:

Jakob Junis (1-1, 2.70 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 3rd game of the series. Junis allowed four runs on seven hits with two strikeouts in six innings, he didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 8-7 loss to San Diego.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Mets are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games against San Francisco.

NY Mets are 13-6 SU in their last 19 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of San Francisco's last 6 games against NY Mets.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of San Francisco's last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Giants ended losing streak after beating the Mets in a high scoring game on Tuesday night. Now they have the chance to win this series as the Mets are sending a rookie to the mound. Jakob Junis will start for the Giants and he only has 3 starts this season. With both offenses on fire I have no other choice but to take the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
