Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 good teams in the National League. It definitely has the chance to be an entertaining one. Cincinnati is trying to gain ground while the Mets are trying to stay atop their division.
I look for the Reds to play a good game on Saturday and take the win on the road. I like the way they have been playing and I look for that to continue.
Wade Miley is the better pitcher and he was good the last time he went against the Mets. Of course there is no guarantee that he will do good again against them, but I do feel he can contain the Mets lineup and get weak contact.
I will lay the -105 with the Reds here.
