MLB Betting Trends

San Francisco

The under is 6-1-1 in the last eight Giants games overall. The over is 9-3-2 in the last 14 meetings.

New York

The Mets are 12-26 in their last 38 home games. New York is 4-0 in Wheeler's last four home starts.


Wheeler has really pitched well the last couple months and the Mets are catching the Giants in full fade mode. While New York is lousy in its own right, its offense has had a few outbursts lately and has the better pitcher on the mound tonight. Plus the Mets are at home.
