New York Mets Betting Preview

The Mets have again shown they are one of the most inconsistent and frustrating teams to watch and root for in baseball. Their fanbase has to be pretty annoyed by how much money ownership has spent on the team and how few wins they have had over the last several seasons.

The expectation is that this is a playoff team. Thus far, two months or so into the season, they are buried in the NL East. They are looking up and chasing the rival Philadelphia Phillies, who are trying to run away with the division.

On offense, the Mets have some players and sluggers, including slugging first baseman Pete Alonso, who has already cracked a team-leading 14 home runs. He is again on his way to belting 35-plus home runs this season and has been the club's most consistent home run threat over the last several seasons.

The Mets will send out David Peterson, who will take the ball and step on the mound. He has a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 3.09 on the season.

Miami Marlins Betting Preview

The Marlins have not fared much better than the Mets, as they are dealing with their issues and are in the midst of a bad slide. They have had problems getting on base and do not have the type of power the Mets have, so they have to figure out a way to manufacture runs, especially in close games.

Their pitching has been rocked at times, and they enter this game with a combined ERA of 4.66, which gives the Mets offense hope they can get on base and score some early runs. Miami will hand the ball over to Braxton Garrett, who has a record of 2-1 with an ERA of 5.81. He has gotten off to some shaky and slow starts in the past and will have to settle down early in this one and gain some confidence early on.

On offense, Miami is led by first baseman Josh Bell, who has put up some solid numbers this season, smacking seven home runs to go along with 31 RBI and an average of.252.
