New York is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 20-7 in their last 27 Thursday games. The over is 6-3-1 in New York’s last 10 games. Chicago is 3-7 in their last 10 games and 1-6 in their last 7 game three’s of a series. The under is 7-0 in Chicago’s last 7 Thursday games. New York is 9-24 in these two teams last 33 head to head meetings. 


Chicago comes into this game looking for the series sweep, while New York is looking to stay above .500. New York came into this series playing very well, but they have only managed to score four runs in the first two games. The Mets are starting Carlos Carrasco, who has been terrible this season. Carrasco has allowed 18 earned runs over 18.2 innings so far this year. I like the Cubs in this game.
