New York Yankees vs. New York Mets Betting Analysis

The Yankees visit the Mets on Wednesday, July 27th for the second of a two-game series at Citi Field.

The Yankees currently sit atop the American League East standings with a record of 66-32. Away from Yankee Stadium, New York owns a 29-20 mark.  The Mets rank first in the National League East standings with a record of 60-37, which includes an impressive 30-17 mark at home.

New York Yankees vs. New York Mets Betting Prediction

The Mets send RHP Max Scherzer to the hill against the Yanks’ top-ranked scoring offense on Wednesday night (5.34 RSPG), who’s been phenomenal in his first campaign with New York sitting 6-2 with a 2.28 ERA across 12 appearances this season (0.89 WHIP); despite surrendering seven runs in 12 innings across back-to-back starts against the Phillies (5.25 ERA, 1.33 WHIP).

On the flip side, the Yankees send RHP Domingo German to the mound against the Mets’ fifth-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.67 RSPG), who was awful in his first outing of the season, as German surrendered five runs on six hits across three innings in Houston last week (15.00 ERA, 2.33 WHIP).

I’ll back the Mets to cover here, as Scherzer has tossed six innings or more and allowed two runs or less in six straight starts for the Mets (1.67 ERA, 0.84 WHIP); likely presenting an uphill battle for the Yankees and German, who’s 4-6 with a 4.88 ERA across his last 23 appearances dating back to last season (1.21 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Mets 6, Yankees 2
Best Bet: Mets -1.5 (+125)
