San Francisco Giants Betting Preview

The Giants have won their last four consecutive games and are up 2-0 in this series. So far, they are averaging 7.50 runs a game and are coming off of a 7-2 win that went to extra innings as they scored five runs alone in the 10th.

Logan Webb (4-4) gets the start on the mound and has an ERA of 3.03 and a WHIP of 1.33. Their team ERA comes in at 4.47, which shows that Webb has them in good hands.

Matt Chapman leads the Giants' offense with eight home runs and a batting average of.240. He has also accumulated a base percentage of.309 and a slugging percentage of.425.

At the plate, they are averaging.250 and allowing.255. This is a slightly negative ratio, but it shows they can accumulate offense quickly. This is similar to the Mets, but slightly more aggressive at the plate.

New York Mets Betting Preview

The Mets have lost their last five consecutive games and are desperate to break the cycle. Over their last five games, they have only scored over five runs twice, which shows they need to either be stronger offensively or their defense must improve.

Sean Manaea (3-1) will be their starting pitcher, who currently has an ERA of 3.11 and a WHIP of 1.29. Compared to Webb, this should be a good matchup. Their team ERA stands at 4.10, so his presence should give them a good shot.

The Mets have Starling Marte leading their offense at the plate with a batting average of.259. They also have Pete Alonso leading with 12 home runs and Brandon Nimmo with 29 RBIs.

Their offense is a little stagnant at times, with a batting average of.235. It also does not help that they allow their opponents to average.230, which is essentially breaking even at the plate.
