The Mets have not looked good in this series and are watching their lead in the NL East shrink. New York will turn to Max Scherzer in this game, who has allowed three earned runs in his last 27.2 innings pitched. For Atlanta, Jake Odorizzi has allowed four earned runs over 8.2 innings for the Braves. I like the Mets in this game behind Scherzer.
