New York Mets Fantasy Spin

Pete Alonso hit a pinch-hit three-run homer on Saturday against the Giants. Alonso got the day off with Dominic Smith getting the start at first -- who also homered, for the record -- but he still made his mark by crushing a three-run shot off of Derek Holland as a pinch-hitter in the sixth. The star rookie now has 33 homers, and he's driven in 75 runs with a slash of .267/.319/.615. A 50-homer season is more than possible for Alonso in 2019.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Conner Menez will have his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento and will make his major league debut against the Mets. His arrival will mean that Drew Pomeranz will be shifted to the bullpen. Menez, a 14th round draft pick from the 2016 draft class, owns a 3.13 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 123/36 K/BB ratio over 95 innings between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Sacramento this season.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 2-6 in Steven Matz’s last eight road starts and are 1-4 in his last five outings overall.

San Francisco

The Giants have won 14 of their last 17 games overall and are 4-1 in their last five home games.

Prediction:

The Mets showed a lot of pop in their blowout win yesterday but I’m banking on today’s game matching the first two games of this series and turning into a pitcher’s duel. The Mets haven’t seen Menez and if he can make it through five innings without getting destroyed, the Giants can turn the game over to their excellent bullpen. Meanwhile, San Francisco showed plenty of offensive firepower in Milwaukee and Colorado the past two weeks, but since returning home the Giants have scored four or fewer runs in their last three games.

The Pick: Mets/Giants UNDER 9
