The Line: San Francisco Giants +128 / New York Mets -138 -- Over/Under: 7
The San Francisco Giants and New York Mets meet Tuesday in MLB action at Citi Field.
The San Francisco Giants could use a win after losing nine of their last 13 games. The Giants have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 51 hits and 24 RBI while Joe Panik and Kevin Pillar have combined for 90 hits and 44 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 4.01 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 6-0 with a 1.69 ERA and 54 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The New York Mets could also use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Mets have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The New York Mets have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Amed Rosario leads the Mets with 57 hits and 29 RBI while Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil have combined for 111 hits and 59 RBI. Noah Syndergaard gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.90 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Syndergaard is 3-2 with a 2.86 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 0-4 in their last 4 games following an off day, 3-12 in their last 15 vs. National League East and 7-19 in Bumgarner's last 26 road starts. The Mets are 9-1 in their last 10 home games, 6-2 in their last 8 games following an off day and 9-4 in Syndergaard's last 13 home starts. The Giants are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings, 6-0 in Bumgarner's last 6 road starts vs. Mets and 6-0 in Bumgarner's last 6 starts vs. Mets. The over is 7-2-1 in Syndergaard's last 10 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Bumgarner's last 5 starts overall.
Bumgarner is coming off a strong month of May where he had a 3.72 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 36.1 innings. Bumgarner has also owned the Mets throughout his career, even if was just a few starts. Syndergaard has allowed three or more earned runs in seven of his last 10 starts and has had recent issues keeping the ball inside the park. Syndergaard has been better at home than on the road, but a 4.73 ERA isn't exactly lighting it up and certainly isn't what we're used to seeing from the Mets ace. In terms of a value play, I'm leaning toward the San Francisco Giants and the plus money. Syndergaard hasn't been good this season.
