The Mets are 5-0 in their last five Sunday games and 5-17 in their last 22 versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. The over is 5-1 in New York’s last six Sunday games as well.
Meanwhile, the Brewers are 5-1 in their last six Sunday games and 19-7 in their last 26 at home versus a team with a losing record. Milwaukee is also 21-8 in their last 29 in game three of a series.
PICK: I’m going to take Milwaukee. Peralta has done fairly well over his last two starts, posting three earned on nine hits and one walk over 12.0 innings of work. As for Carrasco, he’s got five earned over 16.0 innings on 15 hits and seven walks in his last three outings. This looks like a promising starter matchup that could turn into a close game, but I like Milwaukee to eke out a victory in the end.
