The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Mets have scored 22 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Mets have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Curtis Granderson leads New York with 93 hits and 33 RBI while Wilmer Flores and Lucas Duda have combined for 82 RBI. The New York Mets have won six of their last eight home games. Bartolo Colon takes the hill, and he’s 9-9 with a 4.60 ERA and 92 strikeouts this season. Colon is 2-2 with a 2.67 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 7-3 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter and 5-2 in Ross' last 7 starts. The Mets are 4-12 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in Colons last 6 starts. The Padres are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in New York.
Colon has really cooled off as of late, and the Mets have lost his last six starts. Meanwhile, Ross has allowed three or less earned runs in each of his last seven starts. I like the value of the Padres and the plus money here.
