The Rockies go into New York hoping to come out one step closer to a wild card spot, they are currently six games back.
The Rockies have won six of their last seven games. They are red hot and doing it both offensively and defensively.
The Mets are slipping away slowly as they’ve been unable to string together a win streak. They’ve literally lost one and won one, lost one then won one over their last twelve games.
On the rubber for the Rockies is Tyler Chatwood, he’s 9-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
Steven Matz is hurling for the Mets and is 8-6 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.
The Rockies are a good team but have been inconsistent all season and right now are on fire.
They can hit with the best of them and it’s really dependent on their pitching, whether or not they come out with a victory.
Runs are tough to come by against the Mets, but over the Rockies last seven games they’ve scored 37 runs.
Chatwood has had an excellent season and threw five shutout innings in his last start against the Braves.
But it’s just the Braves, so we can’t put too much weight on that.
His start prior to that he gave up seven in just three innings against the Rays, who don’t typically score much so that is a surprising outing.
Besides that though, he’s given up three or less runs in seven of his last 10 starts and is generally reliable. Plus, the Mets don’t score much.
The Mets can’t win consistently and are barely over .500 after a super hot start to the season.
They are 1.5 games out of the final wild card spot, so they are in a desperate position where they are looking to get that final spot.
They score just 3.7 runs per game on the season, which is third worst in the league.
In their last five games, they’ve generated just 14 runs.
Steven Matz and the Mets do limit opponents to low run production but the Rockies are definitely one of the tougher teams to do that against.
Matz shutout the Marlins in his last outing over six innings.
He typically goes five to seven innings and will give up around three runs and it’s pretty consistent that he does that with the rare poorer outing over more than three runs.

They win the offensive battle in this one and pitching matchup is equal.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies ML
Both teams are trending on the under but be careful of the line, I would say this one will be under 8.5.
7.5 is the more likely line which is a bit low and risky, so buy the point to 8 at least.
