Shane’s Free Pick

The trends point towards the under and that’s exactly how this game is going to workout. I really don’t especially the Mets offense that has been inconsistent and they are going to really struggle to get anything going here. I expect only five or six runs scored, and it might even finish lower than that. Back the under to cash. 

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