New York Mets vs. New York Yankees Betting Prediction
The Mets send RHP Max Scherzer to the hill against the Yanks’ second-ranked scoring offense on Monday night (5.02 RSPG), who’s been lights out in his first campaign with New York sitting 9-2 with a 2.15 ERA across 17 starts this season (0.93 WHIP), which already includes a dominant outing against the Yankees (7 IP, 0 ER).
On the other hand, the Yankees send RHP Domingo German to the mound against the Mets’ fifth-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.80 RSPG), who’s posted lackluster numbers since returning from injury sitting 1-2 with a 4.45 ERA across six starts on the year (1.41 WHIP), which already includes a lackluster outing against the Mets (4.2 IP, 2 ER).
I’ll back the Mets to cover here, as Scherzer has tossed six innings or more and allowed two runs or less in 10 of his last 11 appearances for the Mets (1.75 ERA, 0.92 WHIP); likely presenting an uphill battle for the Yankees and German, who’s 1-1 with a 4.43 ERA across four career starts against New York (1.18 WHIP).
Score Prediction: Mets 5, Yankees 2
Best Bet: Mets -1.5 (+105)
