MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Pittsburgh Pirates will look to cause yet another upset this Friday, as they take on the NL East leading New York Mets at Citi Field.
The Pirates are coming off of a pretty tough loss against the Braves last time out losing that contest by a score of 14-3 despite getting plenty of hits of their own. The three games before that were all wins though, so this team has been performing well, and the Mets represent a good opportunity for this team to get back in the winning column.
The Pirates rank 30th for total runs this year, but given the batting lineup they have you would expect them to finish better then that this year, with guys like Frazier, Reynolds, and the exciting rookie Ke’Bryan Hayes.
The pitching staff for Pittsburgh has been respectable this year, with the starting rotation providing 18 quality starts on the year and their bullpen also having their moments. We do not know who will be heading to the hill as of yet, but whoever it is will be in a nice spot to put in yet another quality start, as the New York Mets have not exactly been crushing the ball this year.
New York Mets
The New York Mets failed to complete the sweep over the Brewers last time out by dropping the final game of that series 5-0, and this team will feel they need to pick up yet another series win against a team like Pittsburgh in order to keep themselves on top of a tightly contested division.
New York will go with Marcus Stroman in this spot, and he should be able to set up this team for the victory here, as he is entering the game with a fantastic 2.60 ERA with the only worry being his last two outings which were not as good allowing 9 runs over his last 8 innings.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The New York Mets can be a very tough team to trust, and with Stroman struggling in his last couple starts many people will see this as an opportunity to go with a live underdog here. I however, see Stroman bouncing back against a Pirates team who lacks depth, and that should put the Mets in a solid position to cover this 1.5 run spread.
