Arizona Diamondbacks Recap

The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to rebound from their 10-9 loss to the Mets, meaning that the D-Backs at best can earn a series split but they’ll need a win here. The Diamondbacks are still reeling from series losses to the Rangers and Marlins over the last week as well.

Diamondbacks Struggling To Get Over The Hump

Going into Friday’s game, Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 59 hits in addition to a .265 batting average and 13 doubles with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. also has 6 home runs and 29 RBIs as well this season. Corbin Carroll has a team-high 9 stolen bases while Eugenio Suarez has a team-high 63 strikeouts this season. Christian Walker also has 10 home runs with a team-high 33 RBIs of his own this season.

Why the Arizona Diamondbacks will win

  • The Diamondbacks have won four of their last five games as road underdogs against National League opponents following a loss.
  • The Mets have lost four of their last five games as favorites following a win.
  • The Mets have failed to cover the run line in each of their last six games as home favorites.
  • The Diamondbacks have covered the run line in each of their last eight Saturday games as road underdogs against National League opponents.

New York Mets Recap

The Mets almost let another one get away on Friday but managed to hold on to put themselves in a position to potentially win the series if they can pick up a win here. A series win would be a welcome sight for the Mets given their recent struggles, especially after series losses to the Dodgers, Giants and Guardians over the last week and a half.

Mets Starting To Put It Together

Entering Friday’s matchup, Starling Marte leads the Mets with 52 hits and a .267 batting average while Pete Alonso has a team-high 12 home runs and 26 RBIs with 12 doubles as well.

Why the New York Mets will win

  • The Diamondbacks have lost each of their last seven road games against NL East opponents following a road loss.
  • The Mets have won 13 of their last 14 games against the Diamondbacks following a home win.
  • The Diamondbacks have failed to cover the run line in 10 of their last 11 games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Mets have covered the run line in 10 of their last 11 day games against the Diamondbacks following a win.
  • The Mets have led after 5 innings in each of their last eight games as favorites against NL West opponents.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets Prediction

I’m on the under in this one. I know we just had an offensive explosion on Friday, but I’m going back to basics with the under with two teams I don’t trust offensively to begin with, and two teams that have been pretty bad against left-handed pitching for the better part of the season. I just can’t bring myself to get on board with either side here, so give me the under in this one.

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