Mets snap eight-game losing streak

The New York Mets shut down the crosstown rival New York Yankees by a score of 2-0. Todd Frazier accounted for the lone runs as he hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning, his seventh of the season. He finished 2-for-4. Seth Lugo picked up the win as he allowed no runs on two hits with eight strikeouts and no walks over six innings. Anthony Swarzek recorded his first save.

Braves leave LA with loss

Ozzie Albies went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, while Freddie Freeman also hit a solo homer Sunday afternoon but it was not nearly enough in a 7-2 loss at the Dodgers. Sean Newcomb took the loss as he allowed five earned runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and two walks over 5 1/3 innings.

Zach Wheeler (2-4, 4.57 ERA) will start today for New York, while Atlanta is going with Mike Foltynewicz (5-4, 2.31). 

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 3-13 in their last 16 games overall. New York is 7-19 in its last 26 games on a Tuesday. 

Atlanta

The Braves are 7-3 in their last 10 home games. Atlanta is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.

Public Betting Information

New York was in a deep funk before Sunday night's win against Luis Severino and the Yankees. The Mets will face another very tough pitcher tonight in the emerging Foltynewicz. With a scuffling offense, I can't see New York notching the upset with a weaker pitcher on the mound although Wheeler has been in good form as of late. Take the smart play here with favored Atlanta.
