The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Truist Park. The Braves won two of the first three games of this series. On Wednesday it was the Mets that secured the 9-7 victory. 

The Mets come into this game with a 76-42 record overall, and on Wednesday the offense looked impressive scoring nine runs. In the previous two games against the Braves, the Mets only scored one run total, and they need the offense to be better in this game. The Mets are averaging 4.76 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.76 runs per game. Pete Alonso has hit 29 home runs and driven in 99 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who sit with a 72-47 record overall, and they had won three games before losing on Wednesday.

On the mound for the Mets will be Jacob deGrom and he sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 1.62. In 16.2 innings so far this year he has given up one and three runs. Even though deGrom has only made a few starts it's clear he's in mid-season form. 

The Mets are 10-1 in their last 11 Thursday games. The under is 2-0-2 in deGrom’s last four games on grass. The under is 7-1-2 in deGrom’s last 10 starts following a quality start in the last appearance. The over is 4-0 in the Mets last four games on Thursday. 

deGrom has been lights out so far this year and even against a good offense against the Braves, he will continue the success. The Mets offense was strong scoring nine runs on Wednesday and they will continue the success scoring here. Back the Mets to get the job done on the run line.
