SBG Global Sportsbook current line: Braves – 149. Total 7.5 Flat
The Mets are not a very good road team but they do have a decent starting pitcher going on Tuesday. Jon Niese gets the start for New York. He is 8-6 on the season with a 3.63 ERA. Niese is 1-1 in his last three starts with a 4.58 ERA. He has pitched very well in his career against the Braves going 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA.
Mike Minor gets the call for Atlanta. He is 2-0 with a 4.00 ERA this baseball betting season. The rookie set a Braves record with 12 strikeouts in six innings last time out against the Cubs. He has not pitched since the 22nd so he will be working with extra rest on Tuesday.
The Mets continue to struggle to score runs as they are near the bottom of the league. They still continue to pitch well though as they are in the top 10 in ERA. The Braves have the edge on the Mets as they not only have a top 10 ERA but also a lineup that is in the top 10 in runs scored.
New York has really had problems against left-handers on the road. They are 9-22 in their last 31 road games vs. a left-handed starter. They are 3-7 in
Niese’s last 10 starts. The Mets are 2-5 in the last 7 baseball betting meetings against the Braves.
Atlanta is the opposite of the Mets as they have had success against left-handers at home. They are 13-6 in their last 19 home games vs. a left-handed starter.
Since we know that the Mets struggle against left-handers it makes sense that they would struggle to score runs. The Under is 8-1-2 in Mets last 11 road games vs. a left-handed starter. The Under is 6-1 in the Mets last 7 road games. The Under is 5-1 in Niese’s last 6 road starts. The Under is 12-1 in the last 13 meetings between the Mets and Braves.
