The New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies will meet in Queens for their series finale this Sunday from Citi Field. Colorado responded with a three-run victory in game two, 5-2.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado moved to 13-21 following the win over New York. The Rockies have won four of their first five to open the month of May, and they’ll look to win a second straight series here. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .257, with a .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.34 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Elias Diaz has produced multiple RBI in three of his last six games, and he leads the Rockies in batting (.343) and RBI (18). C.J. Cron has a hit in seven of the last eight games, and he’s second on the team with 16 RBI.
Ryan Feltner (2-2, 4.45 ERA, 30 Ks) will get the call for Colorado. The third-year pitcher has shown signs of improvement over his last three starts. Feltner tossed a pair of scoreless outings in Cleveland and Philadelphia, and he contained Milwaukee to just two runs at Coors in his last start.
Mets Betting Preview
New York fell to 17-17 after losing to Colorado. The Mets have now dropped five of seven to begin May, and a win here would be nice with a seven-game road trip looming. The New York offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .234, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.16 ERA, with a 1.34 WHIP. Brandon Nimmo has multiple hits in both matchups, and he leads the Mets in batting average (.317). Pete Alonso has recorded a hit in six of the last nine games, and he’s first on the team in RBI (29).
Joey Lucchesi (1-0, 3.86 ERA, 13 Ks) will take the mound for New York. The fifth-year pitcher hasn’t been able to follow up his season opening gem in San Francisco, with outings versus Washington and Detroit failing to compare. Lucchesi gave up four runs in four innings against the Tigers, which led to a Mets loss.
Colorado vs New York Trends
Colorado is 15-19 ATS this year, with a 14-20 over/under record. New York is 15-19 against the spread this season, with a 14-19-1 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
The talent possessed in both lineups and their positive under trends are interesting, and after two low-scoring games, I think the bats control game three. Neither pitcher presents an imposing challenge, and with the Mets needing a win here, they should come out swinging. Colorado is on a heater, and both teams may be about to contribute to an Over here.
