Baseball betting odds on Monday favor the New York Mets as they host the Atlanta Braves in a game that can be seen on ESPN television.
If the pitching rotations hold form then it will be Johan Santana going for the Mets and he would be a big baseball betting online favorite. Let’s take a look at this sports betting matchup for Monday.
Baseball betting hasn’t been that successful on the Mets overall but backing Santana is never a bad idea. He has been simply fantastic all season long and baseball betting odds continue to rise when he is on the mound. Santana is 4-1 on the season with a 0.91 ERA as baseball betting online numbers indicated. Santana was the National League Pitcher of the Month for April and continued his success in May as he dominated the Phillies in a 1-0 win. Baseball betting stats tell us that Santana lost to the Braves twice last season despite a 2.57 ERA in his three starts.
The Braves are likely to send Derek Lowe in this baseball betting online matchup. Lowe is 4-1 with a 3.98 ERA this season as baseball betting statistics show. He continues to find ways to win although he did give up six runs in five innings in his last start against Florida. He has really struggled in his career against the Mets, going 1-2 with an 8.78 ERA as baseball betting online numbers indicate.
The Braves have won 11 of the last 20 games against the Mets as baseball betting numbers show but they have really struggled at New York going 3-7 in the last 10 games.
Atlanta has held their own this season on the road in sports betting, mainly because of their pitching staff which has hovered around the Top 10 in the league in runs allowed as baseball betting numbers show. The Mets haven’t been anything special at home this season versus the baseball betting number but they are playing better there of late, largely because of Santana.
Baseball betting total numbers tell us the Under is a slight winner in the last 20 games between the two teams at 10-8-1 and it is 5-4-1 in the last 10 at New York as baseball betting stats indicate.
