MLB Betting Trends
New York Mets
The Mets are just 5-12 in their last 17 interleague road games and 6-21 in their last 27 road games overall.
New York Yankees
The Yankees have won 42 of their last 60 series openers and they are 19-7 in their last 26 interleague games against a team with a losing record.
Vargas has allowed just one earned run or less in six of his last seven starts, but the Mets still have lost three of those games because they struggled to score. Tanaka is coming off a shaky couple of outings, but he still has the better hitters behind him. As much as I like what Vargas has been doing, I can’t trust his hitters or bullpen to come through in a tough road environment.
