Both teams come into this game splitting the first two games of this series and will look for the upper hand here. New York leads Atlanta by 3.5 games in the NL East, making the last three games of this series very important. New York is calling up David Peterson to start Game 1, and then following up with Max Scherzer in Game 2. For Atlanta, Jake Odorizzi is starting Game 1 and Max Fried is starting Game 2. I like the Braves to win Game 1 as Peterson did not pitch well in his last two appearances for New York and I like the Mets to win Game 2 behind a strong outing from Scherzer.
