Another round of the Subway Series gets started on Monday when the Mets visit the Yankees for two games. The New York Yankees enjoyed a comfortable double-digit lead in the American League East just one month ago and now are up just eight games on the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays. The Baltimore Orioles are also in the hunt at 10.5 games back. The division race is wide open because this last month of baseball will feature a ton of division matchups. The Yankees need to start winning again to lock up first place.

Buck Showalter, one time skipper of the Yankees from 1992 to 1995, never got to manage the subway series because interleague play was not a thing. Buck Showalter and New York Mets won both games against the Yankees at Citi Field back in late July by a combined score of 9-5. The Mets currently hold a four-game advantage over the Atlanta Braves for the National League East division crown and would like to increase that over the next couple days.

The World Series could very well be this matchup, the battle for New York. That would be an electric atmosphere and we expect this atmosphere to be just as electric.

The New York Mets will have ace Max Scherzer on the hill, who at the age of 38 is having another spectacular season. Accumulating 17 starts on the season, 13 have been starts where he allowed two earned runs or fewer. Another two starts he allowed three earned and just two starts did he allow more than three. He owns a 2.15 season ERA spanning 109 innings and piling up 134 strikeouts.

The New York Yankees will counter with Domingo German who only has six starts on the season and has looked relatively decent after a rough first outing. He has only been able to reach 90 pitches just once this season, and we can expect that trend to continue. The bullpen will have to be sharp, and even with all the injuries sustained still own the best bullpen ERA tied with the Astros at 3.01.

BetMGM Sportsbook has the New York Yankees as the home underdogs with at +141 on money line price. The New York Mets are sizeable favorites with Scherzer on the hill coming in at -170 on the money line. Both teams will look to claim the New York title, and for the confident Yankee backer a $100 wager will net a profit of $141.

The total is set to 7.5 with the over listed at even money. The under is priced at -120. The under is 9-2-1 in the last 12 Yankee games but the Mets have trended towards the over in interleague play. The over 19-9-2 in their last 30 interleague games. The over might be worth a look because the trends indicate some high scoring affairs. The over is 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings at Yankee Stadium and 8-2-1 in their last 11 meetings overall.

BetMGM Sportsbook is a great place to get a little action on the Subway Series. Remember to sign up using the VIBONUS code and your first wager is risk free up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
