Mets' Matz allows four runs over four innings in last start

Steven Matz yielded four runs on six hits over four innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks. Matz allowed an RBI single to John Ryan Murphy in the second inning, but that was just a throat-clearing for the Diamondbacks, who had much louder things to say in the fourth. That's when Paul Goldschmidt struck for a solo home run off the southpaw.

A short while later in the frame, John Ryan Murphy (him again) cracked a two-run homer. Matz would make it to the end of the inning, but no further than that. He finished his evening's work having struck out two and walked one. Matz will bring a 4.42 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a road start against the Brewers when he next toes the rubber.

Brewers' Davies to be activated from 10-day disabled list

Zach Davies (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list and start against the Mets on Thursday. Davies has been on the disabled list since May 3 with inflammation in his right shoulder. In six starts for the Brewers before the trip to the DL, he's posted a 4.24 ERA over 34 innings with a 25/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are winless in their last five games at Miller Park.

Milwaukee

The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Milwaukee and is 4-0-1 in Davies' last five starts versus the Mets.

Prediction:

I'm taking the hotter team and laying the wood on the money line. The Brewers are 6-1 in their last seven games versus the Mets, are 4-1 in their last five home games and are 4-0 in their last four games versus National League East opponents. They're also 11-5 in Davies' last 16 games when he starts the first game of a series and are 5-2 in his last seven outings versus National League East rivals.

The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -150
