The under is 4-0 in the Mets’ last four games when facing a left-handed starter and is 4-1-1 in Wheeler’s last six starts. On the other side, the under is 9-3-1 in the Braves’ last 13 games at SunTrust Park when facing an opponent with a losing record and is 7-2 in their last nine home games overall.
