New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
I look for the Giants to keep up their good play and for the Mets to continue struggling. I just do not see the Mets having much success in this series.
San Francisco is a much better team and I feel they will take care of business in game 2. I feel they will be too much for the Mets to handle.
This has the chance to be a very good pitchers duel. I feel that Webb will pitch better than Stroman to get his team a win.
I am going with the Giants on the moneyline here.
