Free Pick: We are gonna look to the Over in this one. Couple of good trends to support this play as well. The OVER is 20-8-1 in Met road games this year, including 10-0 OVER on the road when they take on a lefty. For the year the OVER is an amazing 18-2-1 when the Mets have faced a lefty this year, plus the OVER is 8-1-1 in a Met game with two lefties on the mound. Tough trends to buck for sure. Met road games this year have averaged 10.5 rpg and that's thanks mainly to a staff that has a 5.27 ERA on the road, including a horrible 6.48 ERA from their pen. The Mets do score better on the road and we know that the Yanks can score in bunches as well. This one should hit 10 with ease.
