San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I look for the Giants to keep rolling in this game. I feel they will be too much for the Mets to handle in this one.
San Francisco is a much better team and I just have a hard time believing they will lose to New York. I also have very little confidence backing the Mets in this one.
Alex Wood has been solid this year and I think he will pitch better than Carrasco and get the Giants a win.
I am going with the Giants on the moneyline.
