MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 7-2 in their last nine Tuesday games. New York is 0-4 in the last four deGrom starts.
The Braves are 9-1 in their last 10 home games. Atlanta is 4-0 in the last Teheran starts.
This should be a fantastic pitching matchup, but I trust the Braves more at home with how much they're rolling. The Mets again can't seem to support deGrom and I'll bank on that happening again.
