Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets Prediction

I'm not running to the window to back the Mets, but this is a game they should win. The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to underachieve, they're having a rough week, and the offense keeps coming up short. Jordan Montgomery hasn't been great with his 4.69 ERA, and he's been a mess this month. Luis Severino has been great at Citi Field, with a 2.00 ERA and allowed batting average under .200. We're getting a pick em price with the Mets at home and the better pitcher on the bump. Give me the Mets to win game 2, as they start to put together a winning streak together to chip away in the standings.
