The Minnesota Twins will take the worst record in the Majors into the big apple for a three game series against the New York Mets.
The series could be a perfect opportunity for the Mets to add to their win total and improve their post season Chances.
Minnesota will have Jose Berrios on the mound for game one of the series while the Mets will put Bartolo Colon on the hill.
The Twins dropped their seventh game out of the last ten Wednesday night against the Detroit Tigers. Minnesota will need to win at least half of their remaining games in order to avoid losing 100 games this season.
That is not going to be easy when you take into to account that they have been struggling just to be near .400 the last couple of months. Jose Berrios will be trying to win his 3rd game in the 12th start of his debut season in the big leagues.
He is dragging a 9.27 ERA with a 2.015 WHIP throughout 44.2 innings of play.
He wasn’t able to make it out of the 2nd inning during his last start against the Cleveland Indians, giving up five runs on three hits.
This will be the first time that he has gone up against the New York Mets.
New York Mets
Despite having several opportunities, the Mets were unable to knock in a run in a pitching battle Wednesday night against the Washington Nationals.
They started the day Thursday a half game behind the San Francisco Giants for the first wild card spot.
Colon will be making his 30th start Friday and has a record of 13-7. In 170.2 innings, he has an ERA of 3.27 with a 1.219 WHIP. He hasn’t lost in his previous five trips to the mound.
Colon is 10-8 durring his career against the Twins with a 3.97 ERA.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 games against a starter with a WHIP higher than 1.30
- The Mets have won 9 of their previous 12 home games.
- Minnesota has only won one of their last 12 games on the road.
- The Twins have dropped their last nine games on the road against a right handed starter.
Free Minnesota Twins vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The New York Mets are right in the thick of a National League wild card race and could use these three games against the Twins to make a move on the Giants.
They are currently ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals and the redbirds will be in a series against San Francisco this weekend.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York ML and game total over 8.5
Berrios hasn’t been able to win in his last six games and has a crazy ERA that is currently over 9. If the Mets are able to get the bats swinging, they should have no problem putting up some good numbers on offense Friday night.
With Colon on fire with the ball, the Mets should be able to take the first game of the series and set themselves up for a good weekend.
