New York is 5-0 in their last 5 Monday games and 23-6 in their last 29 game one’s of a series. The over is 6-1-1 in New York’s last 8 Monday games. Atlanta is 4-0 in their last 4 game one’s of a series and 42-20 in their last 62 home games. The over is 17-7-1 in Atlanta’s last 25 games against the NL East. New York is 1-4 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Atlanta.

This is an excellent pitching matchup between the top two teams in the NL East. The Mets leads the Braves by 1.5 games in the standings, making this series very important for both squads. Max Scherzer has made one start since May 18th and he went six innings with no earned runs against the Reds. For the Braves, Max Fried has only allowed four runs in his last 26.2 innings of work. I love both of these pitchers and could see a very low scoring game here. I am taking the under.
