New York is 10-2 as an interleague favorite, 14-5 as a home favorite, and 2-5 in their last seven home games. Houston is 25-58 in their last 83 interleague games, 3-8 in their last 11 games, and 1-7 in their last eight road games. Houston is 11-24 in their last 35 games in New York.
This could be Colon’s last go round so expect him to leave it all on the field and I like the Mets here.
