New York Mets -192 / Colorado Rockies +167
The Colorado Rockies and the New York Mets meet in the finale of their three game set in MLB action from Citi Field on Sunday.
The Colorado Rockies will look to bounce back and win the set after dropping game two on Saturday by a final score of 5-3. Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado each had an RBI while Tony Wolters had two hits. Ian Desmond and Brendan Rodgers each had base hits as well as none of Colorado’s seven hits went for extra bases in the losing effort. Jon Gray took the loss, falling to 5-5 on the year after allowing four runs on eight hits while striking out eight over 5.2 innings of work. Jeff Hoffman will start game three and is 1-2 with a 7.29 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. In his career, Hoffman is 1-0 with a 7.62 ERA and 8 strikeouts against the Mets.
The New York Mets will look to win the series after evening up the set at one win apiece following their victory on Saturday. Carlos Gomez went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs while Pete Alonso had a solo home run and Todd Frazier added an RBI of his own in the win. Wilson Ramos went 2 for 4 with a double and J.D. Davis added a double as well while Jeff McNeil chipped in a base hit to round out New York’s offense in the victory. Steven Matz gave up three runs, two earned, on six hits while striking out ten over six innings of work. Edwin Diaz closed out the 9th for his 14th save of the year. Noah Syndergaard will start the finale and is 3-4 with a 4.83 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. In his career, Syndergaard is 1-0 with a 3.32 ERA and 16 strikeouts against Colorado.
Colorado is 1-4 in Hoffman’s last 5 road starts and 10-3 in their last 13 games overall while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall. New York is 0-4 in Syndergaard’s last 4 starts and 12-3 in their last 15 home games while the over is 7-0 in Syndergaard’s last 7 starts against a team with a winning record. Colorado is 16-6 in the last 22 meetings between these two teams and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in New York.
I’m really giving Colorado and the plus money a look here, but the fact is that Hoffman hasn’t been good this season, allowing at least three runs in each of his four starts this season, giving up a total of 17 runs in 21 innings this season. Syndergaard has been shaky lately, giving up at least three runs in each of his last three starts, but the Mets have been strong at home lately and I just trust Thor more than I do Hoffman, so I’ll lay the juice with the Mets here.
