The Braves have been awesome as of late going 8-2 in their last 10 games and now lead the NL East by 6 games. Atlanta knows they will need to keep this hot pace up if they want to maintain their lead as the Nats are hot on their heels and have also gone 8-2 in their last 10. The Braves now travel to Citi Field to play an in division opponent in the Mets in New York.
The Braves will hand the ball to Max Fried (14-4, 3.84 ERA) who is having a very nice season for Atlanta. He is, however, coming off a rough outing last time out against the LA Dodgers. In that game, Fried was nearly taken out by manager Brian Snitker in the very first inning, but managed to bounce back a bit to make it to the 5th inning in that contest.
New York Mets
The Mets are rolling at the moment and will look to continue their 5 game winning streak when they host the Braves. Due to that awesome run the Mets now only sit 1.5 games back of a Wild Card spot in the National League. That did not seem like a likely position a few months ago when the Mets were seen as non contenders for October baseball. Looking to defend home field, the Mets will send Zack Wheeler (9-7, 4.46 ERA) who has had an up and down season for the Mets.
Wheeler has had more downs than ups as of late having tough outings in his last 2 starts. In his last 2 games he has pitched a combined 10 innings and allowed 8 runs and a whopping .372 average. The Mets righty will need to be much better here against a good Braves batting unit.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- ATL are 11-5 in their last 16 Sat. games.
- ATL are 8-1 in Frieds last 9 road starts.
- ATL are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
- ATL are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in New York.
Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Wheeler has been struggling as of late and I am confident the Braves bats can take advantage. I also have a lot more confidence in Fried’s ability to bounce back off a rough outing and believe he will in this spot.
