The New York Mets and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The New York Mets need a win after splitting their last six games. The Mets have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The New York Mets have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Amed Rosario leads the Mets with 166 hits and 64 RBI while Jeff McNeil and Pete Alonso have combined for 298 hits and 181 RBI. Noah Syndergaard gets the ball, and he is 10-8 with a 4.15 ERA and 180 strikeouts this season. Syndergaard is 2-0 with a 2.42 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 176 hits and 79 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story have combined for 340 hits and 200 RBI. Jeff Hoffman gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 7.03 ERA and 58 strikeouts this season. Hoffman is 1-1 with a 8.66 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.

The Mets are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 Wednesday games and 1-5 in Syndergaard's last 6 starts vs. National League West. The Rockies are 3-8 in their last 11 Wednesday games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-7 in Hoffman's last 8 starts with 4 days of rest. The Mets are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado and 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Rockies last 5 home games. The under is 4-1-1 in Syndergaard's last 6 road starts.

Syndergaard has allwoed 14 hits and eight runs in his last 17 innings, and he has a 3.20 ERA and .239 allowed batting average on the road. Hoffman has allowed 18 hits and nine runs in his last 16 innings, and he has a 7.24 ERA and .328 allowed batting average at home. Coors has the habit of eating up any pitcher no matter how good they may be, so I don't expect Syndergaard to be his normal self and mow down the Rockies lineup through seven innings. However, backing Syndergaard and a somewhat reasonable price is certainly a better option than backing Hoffman, who has done nothing but get tattooed through 56.1 innings. Give me the Mets.

Pick:
New York Mets -157
