New York Mets vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This is the first time that the subway series is being played this year. I feel that this game has the chance to be a very good pitchers duel.
The Yankees have more talent, but the Mets have played a lot better this year. This is a very important series for both of these squads.
Both of these pitchers have been good this year and I look for this game to be low scoring affair.
I like the under 8.5 runs in this one.
