Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets Prediction 

Both of these teams come into this series struggling, but New York has been one of the worst teams in the MLB over the last few weeks. The Mets are just 11-19 at home, while Arizona is 12-15 on the road. Arizona will have Zac Gallen on the mound, but he has not been dominant so far this year. New York is going with Christian Scott, who has been pretty solid through four outings. I didn’t trust the Mets against the Dodgers and I don’t trust them here either. New York is going through a tough time right now and they are finding different ways to lose. My Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets prediction is for the Diamondbacks to win.
