Mets' Wheeler not impressive vs. Nationals

Zack Wheeler took the loss after allowing three runs in six innings against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Wheeler limited the damage, but he just wasn't very impressive in giving up seven hits and three walks while striking out only two. On the plus side, he did go 2-for-2 with the bat and score one of the Mets' two runs. It still seems likely that he'll head back to Triple-A when Jason Vargas comes off the disabled list.

Braves' Foltynewicz continues to limit runs every start

Mike Foltynewicz allowed one run over six innings and struck out eight Phillies on Tuesday. Folty has gone four straight starts without allowing more than two earned runs, and he's struck out at least seven in three of them.

We're still a little skeptical that he's suddenly turned into a mixed-league asset, but this has definitely been one of his best stretches as a major leaguer. (Rotoworld)

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 9-4 in their last 13 games against the Braves and have won 19 of their last 27 games in Atlanta.

Atlanta

The Braves have won just once in Foltynewicz's last six home starts and are 1-10 in his last 11 outings overall.

Prediction:

These two teams didn't score a run until the 8th inning last night and then they "broke out" for seven in the final two frames. I see another low-scoring game between these rivals. The under is 3-1-1 in Wheeler's last five starts against the Braves, is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta. With some of New York's big poppers struggling (Yoenis Cespedes being one of them), I see this game falling under the 8.5 runs.

 

The Pick: Mets/Braves under 8.5
