The Cleveland Guardians and New York Mets meet Sunday in a MLB doubleheader at Citi Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Cleveland Guardians Betting Preview
The Cleveland Guardians have scored 14 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 7 of their last 11 games. The Guardians have lost 7 of their last 10 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Steven Kwan leads the Guardians with 45 hits and 14 RBI, while Jose Ramirez and Amed Rosario have combined for 83 hits and 31 RBI. Tanner Bibee and Shane Bieber get the ball for the Guardians.
New York Mets Betting Preview
The New York Mets have scored 21 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Mets have lost 6 of their last 10 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Brandon Nimmo leads the Mets with 51 hits and 18 RBI, while Jeff McNeil and Francisco Lindor have combined for 89 hits and 47 RBI. Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander get the ball for the Mets.
The Guardians are 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games. The Mets are 6-1 in their last 7 interleague home games and 37-17 in their last 54 during game 3 of a series. The under is 20-6-2 in Guardians last 28 overall. The over is 5-1 in Mets last 6 overall. The Guardians are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in New York and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings.
Game 1 I'm going to side with the Guardians, as Tanner Bibee has been sharp through 22.1 innings with his 1.03 WHIP. Max Scherzer is still trying to work his way back, and he has an ERA over 7 in his last 2 starts. In game 2, I'm going to give the Mets the edge. Justin Verlander is still getting his footing, but he's under the lights and going up against a Guardians' offense that's not scoring. Shane Bieber's numbers drop on the road, and current Mets have had success against him in a small sample size.
