The Line: New York Mets -180 / San Francisco Giants +165 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The New York Mets look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Mets have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The New York Mets have won their last three games when scoring four or more runs. Jeff McNeil leads the Mets with 107 hits and 39 RBI while Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso have combined for 188 hits and 116 RBI. Jacob deGrom gets the ball, and he is 5-7 with a 3.21 ERA and 144 strikeouts this season. deGrom is 4-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The San Francisco Giants have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 90 hits and 52 RBI while Brandon Belt and Joe Panik have combined for 147 hits and 61 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 5.44 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s second career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 11-5 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series, 1-5 in their last 6 Friday games and 2-6 in deGrom's last 8 road starts. The Giants are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 5-1 in their last 6 Friday games and 5-1 in Beede's last 6 starts. The Mets are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in San Francisco, 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and 5-2 in deGrom's last 7 starts vs. Giants. The over is 10-3-1 in Giants last 14 overall. The over is 8-2-1 in deGrom's last 11 starts overall.
deGrom has allowed just 15 earned runs in his last 52 innings and hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in a single start since May 17. However, the Mets have lost 13 of the last 17 games deGrom has pitched. Beede has had his issues this season, but he's allowed just 11 hits and four runs in his last 13.2 innings and the Giants have managed to win five of his last six starts. The New York Mets have the pitching edge, but they haven't been able to win with deGrom this season. The San Francisco Giants are also finding some of that magic in the second half and I'm sure a come from behind victory in the 16th inning only adds to that confidence. I'll take a shot with the Giants and the big plus money.
