New York Mets Fantasy Spin

Jeff McNeil went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two RBI, a walk and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Nationals. McNeil came through with a clutch two-run, game-tying double in the second inning after the Nationals put up three runs in the first. The pair of two-baggers on the afternoon gave him 31 doubles for the campaign as a whole. Overall this season, McNeil is slashing a strong .337/.405/.536 with 15 home runs, 54 RBI, 67 runs scored and four steals across 104 games played.

Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin

Ender Inciarte went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Marlins. The Marlins held a 3-1 advantage at the time Inciarte stepped to the plate with two on and two out in the fourth inning. He proceeded to flip the scoreboard with a three-run home run off Hector Noesi. For the campaign as a whole, the 28-year-old outfielder is slashing an uninspiring .235/.333/.380 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 61 games played.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 4-1 in Wheeler’s last five starts and are 15-7 in his last 22 outings following a quality start in his last appearance.

Atlanta

The Braves have won four straight games that Fried has started and are 5-2 in his last five home outings.

Prediction:

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. Given how well these two starters are throwing, this total is too high.

The Pick: Mets/Braves UNDER 9.5
