New York Mets vs. New York Yankees Betting Analysis

The Yankees host the Mets at Yankee Stadium for Game second of a two-game series on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.

The Mets lead the National League East with a record of 79-45, despite yielding a 39-26 record on the road so far this season. The Yankees rank first in the American League East standings with a record of 75-48, which includes an impressive 44-20 mark at home.

New York Mets vs. New York Yankees Betting Prediction

The New York Mets enter this matchup first in the NL East standings with a three-game lead over the second place Atlanta Braves. The Mets lost game-one of this series on Monday night and are 5-5 SU over their last 10 games. New York has had a couple of rough stretches throughout the season but have been playing good baseball for the most part. The offense ranks well against the rest of the league with a batting average of .258 (26th), on base percentage of .329 (2nd), slugging percentage of .409 (10th) and have scored 590 total runs (4th). The Met’s bullpen has been solid as well, holding opponents to a batting average of .236 (9th), have a WHIP of 1.19 (5th) and have a team ERA of 3.57 (5th). Right-handed pitcher Taijuan Walker (10-3, 3.36 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound Tuesday.  

The Yankees are currently first in the AL East standings with an eight-game lead over the second place Tampa Bay Rays. New York managed to beat the Mets on Monday night but have really struggled since returning from the All-Star break with a 10-20 SU record. While it may not be time to hit the panic button just yet, this team went from dominating everyone to struggling against everyone but the Royals. The offense has averaged just two runs per game over their last 10 and were shutout in three of those matchups. The bullpen has been a bit better, allowing opponents 3.2 runs per game over their last 10, but they still just do not seem like the same team they were in the first half of the season. The right-hander Frankie Montas (4-10, 3.87 ERA) is expected to start for the Yankees Tuesday.  

I like the Mets to take game-two of this series. Montas has not been great this season by any means, and I expect the Mets offense to have more success than they saw on Monday night. Also, until the Yankees can figure out their offensive struggles it is tough to have much faith in them going up against a guy like Taijuan Walker. Backing the Mets moneyline in game-two.  

Score Prediction: Mets 5, Yankees 3
Best Bet: Mets ML (+110)
