New York Mets
The New York Mets will look to close the 2 game gap between them and the leaders in the NL Wild Card race when they travel to Kansas City to play the Royals in interleague action. The Mets have been one of the hottest teams in the league the last month and are now 7-3 in their last 10 games. The Mets will be in great hands here as they send Jacob deGrom (7-7, 2.68 ERA) to the hill who continues his outstanding year.
The Mets righty is coming off a decent start last time out and would have been better had an error not cost the team 3 runs. Going back to June, deGrom has been awesome giving up no more than 2 earned runs in that time with a stellar 1.20 ERA.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals abysmal season continues as they welcome in the New York Mets to Kauffman on Saturday. Kansas will look to defend some pride and turn around some recent poor form (3-7, last 10) when they send righty Jakob Junis (8-10, 4.80 ERA) to the mound.
Junis is coming off a very good start against the Tigers on Sunday where he went 6 strong innings while giving up only 2 runs. It is important to note, from a betting perspective, that we might not need to read into that last start from Junis as the Tigers are one of the very worst offensive clubs in all of baseball. He also has a decent record against the Mets, albeit a small sample, where he has conceded a .250 average and has not given up a home run in 28 career batters faced.

Free New York Mets vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Just going to keep riding deGrom here as he should have no problem running through this KC batting lineup. I also don’t think Junis will get far in this game and can see the Mets running up the score. I think the Mets will be heavy favorites here so I will be going with the runline here to avoid laying too much juice.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mets RL
Bet the Mets on the runline and cash in on another strong performance by deGrom.
