New York Mets Betting Preview

The Mets have won their last two games and have solid momentum after dropping their first five to start the season. Their most recent victory was a 3-2 outing in game one of this series.

Francisco Alvarez leads the team with a batting average of .333 and four RBIs total. He also showcases a .360 on-base percentage and a slugging percentage of .583. He will need an outstanding offensive performance to continue their success.

They should have a solid start to the game with Luis Severino on the mound. He currently has an ERA of 5.49 and a WHIP of 2.20 in the five innings he has pitched thus far.

The Mets have a batting average of .167, and their opponents put up .233 at the plate. This shows they will likely have a tough time creating offense if they cannot set the tone early. Getting on base has been a problem, with an on-base percentage of .272, and they have a weak slugging percentage of .264.

Cincinnati Reds Betting Preview

The Reds are 1-2 in their last three games and have had a recent defeat to start this series. Before that, they finished their series with the Philadelphia Phillies and won two out of three games there, which should help their momentum here.

Spencer Steer has been great to start the season. He leads them with a batting average of .423 and has accumulated other impressive stats, such as a .500 on-base percentage and a .808 slugging percentage. At this rate, he could easily turn the game in their favor.

They will have Nick Martinez on the mound, which boasts similar numbers to Severino. He currently has an ERA of 5.40 and a WHIP set at 1.40. Setting the tone early from the mound will significantly increase their chances of success.

The Reds are getting .257 from the plate, while their opponents are putting up a .233 batting average. This is a slightly positive ratio and should bode well in their favor. They also have a slugging percentage of .457 and an on-base percentage of .316.
