The over is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

New York continues to hold a slim lead in the NL East over the Braves and should be able to win this series against a bad Oakland team. Oakland is starting Cole Irvin, who has allowed 15 earned runs over his last 18.2 innings pitched. For the Mets, Chris Bassitt has allowed six runs over his last 16.2 innings pitched. I am taking the over in this game.
