San Francisco Giants vs New York Mets Prediction

This line makes no sense to me. The San Francisco Giants are playing good baseball this week and the offense has caught fire. Kyle Harrison has also been solid this season and the Giants have won 7 straight games, he's pitched. The New York Mets continue to underachieve, and they probably shouldn't be favored against anybody in their current form. Christian Scott also hasn't been great through 3 starts, and the Mets haven't won when he's pitched. This line smells fishy. Still, give me the San Francisco Giants and the plus money if forced to pick.
