The Mets are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Nieses last 4 starts. The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. National League East and 1-4 in Hellicksons last 5 home starts. The over is 4-0 in Nieses last 4 starts vs. Diamondbacks..
If we know anything about the Mets, it's that they have no consistency at all on the road. So, after a win on Thursday, we fade them on Friday. Look for Arizona to bounce back.
