The Braves and Mets face off in game 3 of this series Tuesday night at 7:10 in New York. Games 1 and 2 are both being played Monday as part of a double header
Head to head, the Mets have played better than the Braves this year. Atlanta will look to flip the script.
Charlie Morton will toe the slab for the Braves and Marcus Stroman will go for the Mets.
The Braves are not playing up to their standard, but they do come into this series having won 3 out of 4 against the Cardinals. Their most recent win came on Sunday where they beat the Cardinals 1-0.
Their record of 33-36 puts them in 4th place in the National League East. The Mets are 5 games ahead of them.
Atlanta will have their work cut out for them in game 1 against the Mets on Monday. It is no easy task going against Jacob deGrom. At this moment, starters have not been announced for game 2 on Monday.
Lefty Drew Smyly went 5.2 innings and did not allow a run against the Cardinals on Sunday night. This is a good sign for the Braves because he has yet to really find his groove.
Even at the age of 37, Charlie Morton is still pitching well. This year he has a 6-3 record and a 3.91 ERA. His last outing came against the Cardinals on Thursday, where he went 7.2 innings and did not allow a run.
Atlanta pitching has not been where they want it to be. They have an ERA of 4.43, which is 19th best in baseball. The bullpen has really let them down this year.
The Braves feature a dynamic offense. They are 10th in baseball scoring 4.81 runs per game. The offense was held quiet in the double header on Sunday, scoring only 1 run in each game.
The team is led by start outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. Other key players are Freddie Freeman and Ozzie Albies.
Atlanta has blasted 99 home runs which is 4th best in baseball.
New York Mets
The Mets have had a decent year so far. They come into this series having lost 3 out of 4 against the Nationals. The Nationals beat them 5-2 on Sunday.
New York has a record of 36-29, which puts them 1st in the National League East. They lead the Phillies by 4 games.
This team will look to continue their success against the Braves in this series.
Taijuan Walker went 6.1 innings and gave up 4 runs against the Nats in the finale against Washington.
Marcus Stroman has been good for this team so far. He has a 6-5 record, but only a 2.35 ERA. His last start was on Thursday against the Cubs. He went 7 innings and allowed 2 runs.
The pitching for this team has been great this year. They are ranked 2nd with a 3.15 ERA.
Offense has been a different story for this club. They are only scoring 3.72 runs per game, which is 29th best. Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor are not hitting the way they have in the past.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Braves are 5-2 in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning record.
- Mets are 2-5 in their last 7 games vs. the National League East.
- Mets are 1-4 in their last 5 games overall.
Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This will be an excellent pitching matchup.
It really is a hard game to predict.
Both of these starters seem to be evenly matched. Stroman has had the better year based on ERA. The Mets are a team that I feel Morton can be very effective against. I do not see New York scoring a lot on him. After he leaves, the bullpen will have to figure out a way to not blow it.
As for Stroman, I do not think the Braves will crush him. I think they will do enough against hm and potentially their bullpen to earn a win.
I will take the Braves on the road.
