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 five of their last eight games. The Mets have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Juan Lagares leads New York with 61 hits and 16 RBI while Michael Cuddyer and Lucas Duda have combined for 54 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last eight home games. Jacob deGrom takes the hill, and he’s 7-4 with a 2.42 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. deGrom is 2-1 with a 2.00 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Braves are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games and 5-2 in Millers last 7 road starts. The Mets are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 5-0 in deGroms last 5 starts. The Braves are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in New York.
DeGrom has been solid this season and has won his last five starts, but it's not like Miller has been a slouch. Miller has given the Braves nothing but solid performances. I like the value of Miller and the plus money.
