June 26, 2024

The New York Yankees (52-29) and New York Mets (38-39) will square off in the finale of their two-game series on Wednesday, June 26 at 6:10 PM ET at Citi Field in Queens, New York. The Yankees are favored to succeed with a moneyline at -155.

New York Yankees Betting Preview

The Yankees have lost four out of their last five games and are currently stuck in a two-game losing skid. Their latest defeat was a 9-7 outing against the Mets in Game 1 of this series. Over their last five games, they have allowed 40 runs total, or eight each game on average.

Hopefully, with Luis Gil (9-2) back on the mound, they will have some consistency defensively. He currently averages a 2.77 ERA while also averaging a 1.08 WHIP. As for the team ERA, it comes in at 3.28 and is more appealing than the Mets average.

Aaron Judge continues to stand out offensively, as he leads them with 29 homers and 75 RBIs. So far, he has earned that many home runs out of the 117 they have as a team.

Their batting average is strong at .250, while they also hold opponents back to .222. This is a great separation between the two, but they must continue to strive for further improvement.

New York Mets Betting Preview

The Mets have won their latest three out of five games with a two-game win streak currently under their belt. Prior to their Game 1 success here, they defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2. Over these last five games, they have put up 29 runs, or 5.8 scored each game.

Having Sean Manaea (4-3) in the lineup makes him a solid opponent against Gil. He has a 4.16 ERA and a WHIP of 1.29. In addition, their team ERA is 4.11, showing they have about the same support once he needs relief.

Not having Starling Marte in the lineup due to injury will hurt their offense, as he leads them with a .278 batting average. He also accumulated a .328 on-base percentage and a .416 slugging percentage. Other players on the roster will need to step up.

The Mets' batting averages are similar to the Yankees', as they put up .249 and allow .233. At this rate, they must perform better at the plate or have a better defense to consistently battle with the Yankees.
