The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mets have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Mets have won six straight games when scoring more than three runs. Lucas Duda leads New York with 52 hits and 24 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Michael Cuddyer have combined for 48 RBI. The New York Mets have won four of their last five home games. Jonathon Niese takes the hill, and he’s 3-5 with a 4.08 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Niese is 5-5 with a 4.19 ERA and 79 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 5-2 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter and 5-0 in Koehlers last 5 starts with 5 days of rest. The Mets are 22-6 in their last 28 home games and 1-5 in Nieses last 6 starts. The Mets are 5-2 in Nieses last 7 starts vs. Marlins and the 0-4 in Koehlers last 4 starts vs. Mets.
The Mets haven't had much success with Niese on the hill recently and both of these teams have been up-and-down almost all season. I'm taking the plus money and the road team to give my wager more value.
