Mets Betting Preview
New York moved to 26-25 after dropping two of three to Chicago. The Mets responded to a gem from familiar face Marcus Stroman to take game three from the Cubs, and they’ll look to rebound at Coors this weekend. The New York offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .240, with a .304 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.78 ERA, with a 1.38 WHIP. Brandon Nimmo produced a pair of runs in the series finale win over Chicago, and leads the team in batting (.295) and hits (58). Pete Alonso homered two of three games at Wrigley, and he leads the Mets in HR (19) and RBI (45). Francisco Lindor has a hit in six of the last ten games, and he’s second on the team in RBI at 34.
Max Scherzer (3-2, 4.01 ERA, 31 Ks) will take the mound for New York. The veteran pitcher put together a solid outing versus Cleveland on Sunday, striking out five over six scoreless innings. It marked the second quality start for Scherzer, who’s dealt with distraction (injury and suspension), and he’ll look to build on that performance here at the vaunted Coors Field.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado moved to 22-29 after taking three of four games from Miami. The Rockies responded to being swept by the Rangers by coming home and playing good ball against the Marlins, and they’ll look to close the home stand strong this weekend. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .256, with a .317 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.70 ERA, with a 1.43 WHIP. Elias Diaz has recorded a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads the Rockies in batting (.343). Randal Grichuk had three hits in the series finale win over Miami, and he’s right behind Diaz in batting at .342. Charlie Blackmon has also collected a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads the team in runs scored (26).
Connor Seabold (1-1, 5.97 ERA, 25 Ks) will get the call for Colorado. The third-year pitcher suffered his first loss of the season last week, after giving up five runs in 3.2 innings pitched. Seabold has allowed eleven runs in his last two starts combined, and he’ll attempt to bounce back here.
New York vs Colorado Trends
New York is 18-33 against the spread this season, with a 24-26-1 O/U record. Colorado is 24-27 ATS this year, with a 22-29 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Max Scherzer put together his best start of the season last time out, but he’ll now head into the toughest place to pitch, and it puts him in a vulnerable position. Scherzer has been through quite a bit in just two months, and facing this streaking Rockies team right now could get him trouble. With the Mets so heavily favored, spot Colorado the two runs for the series opener.
