Betting on the New York Mets (34-41)

Moneyline: -102

The Mets took a step back Tuesday night in the series opener with the Marlins, 6-3. It was a frustrating loss, as they snapped a three-game winning streak. The team’s three key hitters – Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce, and Wilmer Flores – all got blanked (0-for-11).

If we were to base the judgment on the the Mets’ trend against the Marlins this season, which is up-and-down for the most part, we’d be confused as to what to make out of it. They are 4-7 overall but have won two of the last three meetings. In their last series of encounter (May 5th-7th), the Mets won the first two games and piled up 19 runs, but went on to plummet in the finale by giving up seven unanswered scores.

Should the “good” Metropolitans show up tomorrow night, we can expect Curtis Granderson to lead the charge. The 36-year-old, 14-year-veteran has bombed four homers in the past week, while batting an impressive .423.

Steven Matz (1-1, 3.60 ERA) will draw the start for the pitching duties. The third-year hurler struck out eight batters in his start last June 22nd, but have up three runs on three hits and five walks. The Marlins’ batters are 17-for-58 (.293) against him all-time.

Betting on the Miami Marlins (35-40)

Moneyline: -108

Thanks to that win, the Marlins were finally able to break out from their seven-game-long trend of alternating wins and losses. The batting was also the best in a while, as the 10-hit, six-RBI performance was their best in seven games.

We may see a duplicate in tomorrow’s contest, since the Marlins have been mostly successful when facing the Mets, winning seven of the 11 meetings.

However, the usual guys – Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich, Dee Gordon, and JT Realmuto, among others – will still have to eye improvement. Despite the strong outing last night, each is still pretty much parading satisfactory numbers this past week. Realmuto, who’s batting at a decent-at-best rate of .285, was their most efficient batter in the said time frame.

Projected starter Jeff Locke is also a wildcard, which is an understatement since the team lost in each of his five starts this year, while also posting an abysmal 5.70 ERA. The Mets’ current roster are 20-for-64 (.313) against him all-time.

Writer’s Prediction

The Marlins (-108) make it three-in-a-row, 5-3.
