The New York Yankees and the New York Mets will complete this year’s Subway Series this Wednesday in the Bronx from Yankee Stadium on YES. The Mets beat on the Yanks last night to win by six, 9-3.

Mets Betting Preview

New York moved to 47-53 after defeating the Yankees. The Mets controlled the game from the very start, and never looked back last night, and they’ll look to double down here. The New York offense is scoring 3.98 runs per game, while batting .240, with a .321 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.39 ERA, with a 1.35 WHIP. Pete Alonso took over the city last night with a pair of homers and five runs brought in, and he leads NYM in home runs (28) and RBI (68). Francisco Lindor added to his Subway Series legend by collecting three hits in the game one victory, and he’s second on the team with 19 homers and 72 RBI. Brandon Nimmo has recorded a hit in seven of the last ten games, and he leads the team in batting (.260) and hits (100), with 15 HR and 46 RBI. 

Jose Quintana (0-1, 3.60 ERA, 3 Ks) will get the call for New York. The longtime Chicago pitcher was solid in his Mets debut, pitching five innings, while holding the White Sox to two runs. Although he was dealt the loss, Quintana looks like he’s going to fit right in and should be able to contribute during New York’s playoff push. It’s unclear how the veteran will fair in the Bronx in his second start, but he’ll look to put together another steady performance here.

Yankees Betting Preview

New York moved to 53-48 after falling to the Mets.. The Yankees brought their struggles into interleague play, and their inner-city foes did not play around with them last night. L The New York offense is scoring 3.87 runs per game, while batting .230, with a .300 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.25 WHIP. Gleyber Torres brings a 14-game hit streak into Wednesday’s contest, and he’s leading NYY in hits (99), while posting splits of .264/16/43. Giancarlo Stanton has produced a run in three of the last five games, and he’s tallied 13 home runs and 34 RBI for the season. Anthony Volpe has collected a hit five of the previous seven games, and he’s averaging an identical line of .210/13/35. 

Carlos Rodon (0-3, 7.36 ERA, 11 Ks) will take the hill for New York. The ninth-year lefty’s first three starts in pinstripes haven’t gone well, and he was rough up in Anaheim last week. giving up six runs in just 4.1 innings to the Angels. The pressure of being in New York is showing early, and Rodon wlll look to turn the tide and out duel his former rotation mate here in game two.

Mets vs Yankees Trends

The Mets are 46-54 ATS this year, with a 52-40-8 over/under record. The Yankees are 51-50 against the spread this season, with a 48-50-2 O/U record. 

Corey’s Free Pick

New York baseball finds itself in an unfamiliar state, with both ball clubs stuck on the outside of the playoff picture, but one of these boroughs has quietly fought back this month, and I like the trend continuing Wednesday. The Mets have progressed this month, and they’ve got plenty of motivation to double down with another victory here.  The Yankees have struggled outside of Gleyber Torres, and with Carlos Rodon still shaking off the dust, the boys from Queens have a good chance to capitalize on that. Back the Mets for this Subway Series matchup.

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