Game 1 Pick: Max Fried has been terrific this season, and he’s owned the Mets throughout his career. However, Scherzer has been CY Young good, and that includes a 2.09 ERA and .191 allowed batting at home. I’m not in the business of betting against Scherzer regardless of who is on the other side. Give me the Mets in game 1.

Game 2 Pick: Odorizzi will be out to put on a show for his new team, but the 32-year-old hasn’t been tough to hit this season, and he has a 4.02 ERA on the road. Peterson is coming off a rough July where he allowed 17 hits and 11 earned runs in 21.1 innings. Neither pitcher is all that scary. I expect some offense. Give me the over.
