New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants

MLB: Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 9:45 PM EST

The Mets have recently won three in a row where their pitching has been solid giving up only two runs in each game. They are well out of the NL East race and have the 2nd fewest wins in the NL but are still only 5.5 games out of the Wild Card. Earlier this season in New York the Mets took two of three games from the Giants.

The Giants have been one of the hotter teams after and before the All-Star break, as they have recently won four in a row and seven of their last eight games. In their streak, they have been solid at the plate and on the mound and while the lineup has been the main issue this season in their recent four-game win streak they totaled 37 runs including blowing up for 19 runs in one of the wins.

The Mets come into this series winning seven of their last eight games against the Giants in San Francisco.

Noah looks to help keep streak alive

Noah Syndergaard (7-4 4.55 ERA) takes the hill in this series opener for the Mets, who have won his last five starts. While he has gotten help from the lineup in the club winning five in a row with him on the hill, he has not given up more than four runs in any of those outings. In his last start, he had a good one giving up two runs on five hits in seven innings in a 4-2 win over the Miami Marlins. The last time New York lost with Syndergaard they faced the Giants at home where he gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings where the bullpen did not do their job in a 9-3 Mets loss.

Rookie Pete Alonso won the All-Star HR derby and is one of the NL leaders in HR and RBI, but only has one hit and no HR in a recent four-game stretch. Jeff McNeil leads the Majors in batting average and has recently had a four-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games.

Bullpen blows it

Madison Bumgarner (5-7 3.86 ERA) goes for the Giants in this game and in his last start had a great one only giving up one run on seven hits in seven innings, but the bullpen blew it in a 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He has been rumored to be on the trading block and the Giants had won three in a row with him on the mound before losing his last outing. In Bumgarner’s last four starts he has only given up five runs and he opposed Syndergaard earlier this season going six innings and giving up three runs in the 9-3 San Fran win. Alex Dickerson has seven hits and three RBI in two games recently and in his last 10 games he has raised his average nearly 50 points and is batting over .340 for the season.

Brandon Crawford had eight RBIs in a recent game, where he made history, where the Giants scored 19 runs and in a recent three-game stretch has 10 RBI and three HR.

With San Francisco hot lately they inched closer to the .500 mark and they are only three games out of the NL Wild Card.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Both teams are playing well as of late and this game is a great pitching matchup. The Giants have been getting it done at the dish and while they will not score a lot of runs in this game, they will get a few. On the other side of the coin Bumgarner will have another great outing and San Francisco will take this series opener in the City By the Bay.

Prediction: PICK: Giants

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This game will be a pitcher’s duel with the starters in this game and while the total was Over when opposing each other earlier in the season that is not the pick in this game. Runs will be at a premium and in the opening game of this series the total will go Under.

Prediction: PICK: Under

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
