Click Here for the Latest Odds

The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Truist Park in Atlanta. This series will probably decide who wins the National League East. 

The Mets come into this game with a 98-58 record overall and on Wednesday it wasn’t the prettiest game, but they were able to secure the 5-4 victory. Eduardo Escobar had a big game finishing with three hits and five runs. The Mets are averaging 4.77 runs per game which is 4th best in the league. Pete Alonso is having a strong season hitting 40 home runs and driving in 141 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Braves and they sit with a 97-59 record overall. In the last game against the Washington Nationals, the Braves only scored two runs and that led to the one-run defeat. The Braves are averaging 4.89 runs per game which is is 3rd best in the league. Matt Olson is having a strong season hitting 30 home runs and driving in 96 RBIs so far this season. 

On the mound for the Mets will be Jacob deGrom who sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 2.93. In his last start against the A’s, he went four innings giving up six hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Braves will be Max Fried who sits with a 13-7 record overall and an ERA of 2.50. In his last start against the Phillies, he went five innings giving up five hits and one run. 

The Mets are 5-0 in DeGrom’s last five Friday starts. The Mets are 1-4 in their last five games following an off day. The over is 5-0 in the Mets last five games. The under is 5-0 in the Braves last five home games. 

deGrom struggled in hsi last start but it seems when the pressure is highest is when he finds the most success. The Braves offense struggled on Wednesday, and they are going to have some major issues scoring against deGrom here. It might not be the prettiest game, but the Mets will secure the win. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
