San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Giants have played well this year and I look for that to continue in this game. I am not that confident backing the Mets here.
San Francisco is a better team and I feel they will show that on Tuesday.
San Francisco should be able to hit around Megill enough to get a win and I look for Long to pitch good enough.
I am going with the Giants on the moneyline in this game.
