The series finale of the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets take place tonight in the Big Apple. Kyle Hendricks will go for the Chicago Cubs and is 8-4 this season and has a 4.46 ERA. Marcus Stroman gets the ball for the New York Mets and has a 6-4 record and a ERA of 2.33. The Mets are one of the best teams art home this season and the Cubs are not good on the road.
The Pick: Mets ML (-124)
The Why: Mets at home
The Mets have taken the first three games of the season to bring their home record to 20-6. The Cubs have hit a massive wall of late only winning three of their last 10 on the road to bring their road record to 14-20.
Against right handed pitchers the Cubs are hitting just .226 and .222 on the road. They have also not been good over their last 14 ranking last in avg vs right handers. Marcus Stroman is having one of the best seasons of his career and should be able to miss some Cubs bats.
We’re going to roll with the home team to stay hot tonight. They are hitting much better against right handers than the Cubs are and have a better offense at home of late. The Cubs are struggling with offense right now having only scored seven runs in the three games this series. Take Stroman and the Mets. The Under is a worth a look too.
Trends We’re Betting On
Mets are 6-1 SU in their last 7
Cubs are 3-7 last 10 road games
Mets are 8-2 SU in the last 10 Thursday games
Mets are 20-7 vs a right handed pitcher
Yesterday’s Pick: Jazz -7 ❌
The struggle is real right now. The Jazz come in the second half and laid an egg. It was ugly from the start on both ends of the floor. No defense. No shots falling.
