Cubs vs. Mets Betting Pick / Preview (Apr. 21)

Wednesday Night Baseball Pick: Chicago Cubs vs New York Mets

Teams have begun the 2010 Major League Baseball season. It’s time to NOW bring your best baseball betting hat to the table for gambling on baseball in the 2010 season. Cappers Picks all season long provides MLB baseball gambling predictions, so check back often.

The Cubbies have stumbled badly in the crowded National League Central early on, looking washed up, but Carlos Silva has been a rare bright spot so far. He’s allowed just one earned run in 13 innings, walking no batters.

Chicago Cubs @ New York Mets – Tonight, 7:10 p.m. ET

Chicago: 5-9 SU
New York: 6-8 SU

MLB Odds:

Cubs -110, Mets -110

Starting Pitchers

Carlos Silva (1-0, 0.69) vs Oliver Perez (0-1, 3.75)

To say that Silva pitches to contact is a hilarious understatement – opponents hit .303 off him all-time – but the guy does nothing but throw strikes and that’s worth something.

At first glance, Silva could be in trouble against the Mets tonight. After all, he has a lifetime ERA north of 8.00 against them. But that stat is hugely misleading; all the Mets with good histories against Silva don’t play for the Mets anymore.

Nothing in the stats suggests New York’s current popgun attack will cause him problems.

Hey – maybe, just maybe Oliver Perez is back to his reasonably useful self. He’s the anti-Silva; he walks everyone but he strikes out tons of guys and doesn’t give up many hits.

That said – the Cubs’ plethora of right-handed power bats could give him trouble. He’s just 1-3 with a 5.53 ERA and nine homers (plus 28 walks) allowed in 42.1 innings against Chicago.

Based on the matchup, the Cubbies look like a superb play tonight.
