The New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds face off on Friday at Citi Field for game one of heir series.
The New York Mets got their season started by getting swept at hoe by the Washington Nationals which doesn’t bode well for this season. The Mets had their share of chances but they let them slip away. Juan Lagares is hitting .455, David Wright is hitting .364, and Ruben Tejada is hitting .300. The Mets starting pitchers have an ERA if 4.82 while the bullpen’s ERA is at 10.61 for a 6.75 team ERA. For game one against the Reds the Mets start Jerry Mejia who was 1-2 last season with a 2.30 ERA allowing 28 hits and striking out 27 over 27.1 innings of work.

The Cincinnati Reds had two low scoring games against the St. Louis Cardinals before Thursday’s offensive explosion but it resulted in just a 1-2 start to the season. Todd Frazier is starting .455, Joey Votto is hitting .455, and Jay Bruce and Brando Phillips are both hitting .182. The Reds’ starting pitchers have a team ERA of 2.45 with the bullpen at 3.12 and a team ERA of 2.67. For game one in New York the Reds start Mike Leake who was 14-7 with a 3.37 ERA last season allowing 193 hits and striking out 122 over 192.1 inning of work.
New York is 7-19 in their last 26 home games, 1-4 in game one of a series, 1-6 in their last seven games, and 1-4 in Mejia’s last five starts as an underdog. Cincinnati is 4-1 in their last five as a road favorite, 1-8 in their last nine games, 0-5 as a favorite, and 1-4 in Leake’s last five road starts. Cincinnati is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings of these two.
The total is set at seven and I like the over here.
