Baseball Odds Preview of Mets at Braves

May 7th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball odds fans in the Big Apple have to be disappointed with the play of their team from Queens. The sports betting world has seen the Mets underperform in the baseball betting year after year and 2009 seems no different. If the team is looking to regroup and make a run at baseball odds post-season appearance it will have to begin on July 18th in Atlanta against the Braves.

Baseball odds are full of great mysteries and why the talented loaded Mets cannot win a pennant is one of them. This team spends more money than almost everyone in the baseball (aside from the Yankees), loads up on All Star players, yet never wins the big baseball betting odds contests that it needs to. In 2009 the club was off to a promising start in the MLB odds but by July the team had slipped back to baseball odds mediocrity.

After 82 MLB odds contests the Brave had actually surpassed the Mets in the baseball betting odds standings. With a record of 39-43 the Mets are headed in the wrong direction while the Braves, a half game better in the MLB odds standings, are getting better. The All Star break will be a great opportunity for the Mets to take a break, regroup and try and stop the baseball betting odds bleeding. The team is just 4.5 games out of first and there’s plenty of MLB odds competition left to try and right the ship.

Over the past ten games the Mets are a lousy 2-8 and have lost 4 straight MLB odds contests. If that doesn’t change after the All Star break we could see some roster moves. The series against the Braves will he the perfect chance to gauge how this team will pull itself together for the second half of the baseball betting odds season.

The Braves are marginally talented team and really don’t deserve to be much better than a .500 club. The starting pitching staff led by Lowe, Jurrjens and Vasquez has been surprisingly effective against MLB odds opponents. At the plate, however, this team is pathetic. Veteran Chipper Jones leads the team with only 9 HRs, absolutely awful for a MLB odds team.

That’s why the Mets should win this MLB odds contest. The Braves can not produce runs and if the multi-millionaire Mets roster can muster even two runs, and hold on to a lead they should get the win.
