Shane’s Free Pick
Greene is turning a corner, and he’s going to step up in this game. The Mets offense has been inconsistent and he’s going to really lock down in this game. The Mets are going to score only two or three runs here. The Reds are going to score at least five runs here, and that will be enough here. Back the Reds on the money line.
