Mets vs. Braves TV Coverage: ESPN
At the beginning of the season the Mets were something of a surprise with seven wins in their first 11 games. Nine of those games went over the total. Overall the fifth best run production in Major League Baseball was the trigger for New York’s success. Of great concern remains a pitching staff ranked 21st for staff earned run average. And the bullpen ranked a dismal 26th in MLB after two weeks of play.
Following a slow start the Braves have won seven of their last eight games to stand at 7-4. Atlanta went under the total in four of their last five games. As a result, the Braves were tied with Philadelphia and New York for tops in the National League East Division. Atlanta ranked ninth in MLB for run production and eighth for quality starts. By contrast the bullpen ranked a disappointing 22nd to start the year.
Now the projected starts for this game are right hander Jacob deGrom for the Mets and right hander Mike Foltynewicz for the Braves, who will be making his first start of the year.
Despite their poor reputation with gamblers the Mets have brought surprising road value for baseball betting games. As an example, New York has come away with the money in 13 of their last 20 road tilts. Six of their last seven away matchups have gone over the total. Along the same lines Atlanta has been a tremendous betting value at Sun Trust Park. Braves backers have been paid in 10 of their last 12 home games. Only four of their last 15 in that situation have gone under the total.
The Braves have had a stranglehold on this online sportsbook series against the Mets. To illuminate the Braves have won 12 out of their last 17 games against Atlanta.
