Atlanta is 20-8 in their last 28 games against the NL East and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The over is 5-2 in Atlanta’s last 7 game 1’s of a series. New York is 5-0 in their last 5 game 1’s of a series and 14-5 in their last 19 games. The over is 4-1-1 in New York’s last 6 game 1’s of a series. Atlanta is 7-3 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

The Mets have been very good to start the season and will have the home field advantage in this game. Both starting pitchers have been very sharp this season and runs will be at a premium here. The under is worth a look, but I don’t see how you can go against the Mets here.
