As of this writing, 51% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Mets to win on the money line. Meanwhile, 62% of the betting tickets are on the under.


Wacha had a great spring and is using four pitches now to keep batters off balance. He should pitch well this afternoon but he historically has trouble the third time through a lineup so if even he fares well in the early innings, the Mets should get to him eventually. Meanwhile, deGrom was nasty a year ago while finishing with 239 strikeouts, the fifth most in the majors. With the price coming down to a reasonable -124 on the Mets, I'll back deGrom.
