The Chicago Cubs and New York Mets face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field in New York City. 

The Mets come into this game with an 89-52 record overall and they are coming off another big on Sunday. The Mets scored nine runs and that was enough for the blowout victory over the Miami Marlins. The Mets are averaging 4.72 runs per game which is 5th best in the league. The Mets pitching is also ranked 4th in the league. Pete Alonso has hit 33 home runs and driven in 109 RBIs. 

The Cubs come into this game with  58-82 record overall and the offense hasn’t been good enough in the last two games. The Cubs offense hasn’t been good enough and they are averaging 4.07 runs per game which is 23rd in the league. The pitching is also ranked 25th in the league. Ian Happ has been the top player for the Cubs hitting 16 home runs and driving in 65 RBIs.

On the mound for the Cubs is Javier Assad who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 2.93. In his last start against the Reds, he went 5.1 innings giving up five hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Mets will be Chris Bassitt who sits with a 13-7 record overall and an ERA of 3.24. In his last start against Pittsburgh, he went seven innings giving up five hits and one run. 

The Mets are 8-0 in Bassitt’s last eight starts. The Cubs are 1-7 in their last eight games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0 in the Mets last four games. The over is 4-0 in the Mets last four games against a team with a losing record. 

The Mets have won the last eight starts by Bassitt and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. He gave up only one run in his last start and the Cubs haven’t been known for their offense. Look for the Mets to get to Assad who is coming off a start where he gave up four runs and that is going to be the difference here. Back the Mets.
