Start Time: August 24 2019, 7:10 PM
The Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets combined for just three runs despite playing 14 innings of baseball in the opener of this three-game series Friday night. The Braves have won six on the bounce with each contest going under the total, and this looks like it will be another low-scoring affair.
Mets’ righty Zack Wheeler (9-7, 4.40 ERA) is coming off a couple of subpar outings at Atlanta and KC, but he had turned in back-to-back scoreless outings spanning 15 innings of work prior to that. Wheeler is comfortable home at Citi Field, and note that under is 5-2 in his last 7 starts versus the Braves.
As for Atlanta starter Max Fried (14-4, 3.84 ERA), the 25-year-old southpaw is 3-0 with a superb 2.01 ERA and 26 strikeouts through four starts (22-plus innings) this month. Also, note that under is 4-1 in Fried’s last 5 starts versus the Mets.
Under is 6-0-1 in Mets last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter. Under is 4-0 in Braves last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter. Under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings at Citi Field.
Free pick on UNDER.
