New York Mets -120 / Arizona Diamondbacks +100 O/U: 8.5


The Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Mets will match up on the MLB diamond Thursday to finish their series.

New York took the first two games of this set, 3-1 Monday and 3-2 Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Mets jumped out to a quick start with five runs in the first inning. New York would add four more runs in an eventual 9-0 shutout victory.

For the Thursday game, the Diamondbacks will send out Alex Young to start. Over his 66.2 innings and 7-3 mark so far, Young has a 3.38 ERA with 58 Ks and 19 BBs.

Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Marcus Stroman in the start Thursday. Across 160.1 innings and a 7-13 mark this year, Stroman has a 3.42 ERA with 136 Ks and 49 BBs.

The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in Young’s last six road starts and 1-7 in his last eight in game four of a series. Arizona is 0-4 in Young’s last four starts versus a team with a winning record and the under is 7-3 in their last 10 Thursday games.

Meanwhile, the Mets are 4-1 in their last five Thursday games and 1-5 in their last six in game four of a series. The under is 5-1-1 in New York’s last seven Thursday games and 4-0 in Stroman’s last four starts overall.

Young has been on a pretty solid clip over his last four games. In that stretch he’s given up just six earned runs total over 23.2 innings of work and is 3-0 record-wise.

As for Stroman, he’s been a little sketchy in his last three, though he does have a quality start mixed in there. This should be a pretty fun matchup but I’m taking Young and the D-Backs to eke one out.
