MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets have lost their last five series openers and 6-20 in their last 26 road games.

Chicago

The Cubs have won Chatwood’s last five home starts and they are 9-4 in their last 13 games against a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

Lockett has appeared in four games over his career, allowing 16 runs over 15 innings of work. He has struggled with walks as well. Chatwood has just one start this year, as he has made 16 relief appearances. Regardless, he has been able to pitch well in most positions he has been put in. Walks have been an issue for him as well, but Chicago has the better hitters and the Mets are a disaster on the road.

MLB Prediction: Chicago Cubs -150
