New York vs Tampa Bay: Mets Look to Stay Red Hot Versus Inconsistent Rays
New York Mets: National League East leaders are surging
Following a 2-6 tumble coming out of the MLB All-Star break, the Mets are one of the hottest teams in the Majors as they are on a 9-3 recent run. That roll has New York 1.5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals in the NL East playoff race. A nice mix of solid hitting and stud pitching has helped the Mets surge in the standings. One of our favorite aces gets the call in this contest as stud RHP Jacob deGrom (10-6 ERA 2.09) heads to the bump for New York tonight.
Tampa Bay Rays: Struggling to survive in the crazy American League Wild Card race
On a rollercoaster style ride, with an 8-10 record since returning from the MLB Midsummer Classic layoff, Tampa Bay is eight games behind the New York Yankees in the American League East Division. The Rays are in a pack of five teams that are all within four games of the final AL Wild Card position. Completing the second half of a decent pitching duel, RHP Jake Odorizzi (6-6 ERA 2.86) toes the rubber for Tampa Bay in this contest. The light-hitting Rays are in tough here.
Rays vs Mets MLB Prediction: New York is fresh off a pair of series sweeps, versus Washington and Miami, as they have won six straight games by a 35-13 margin. Tampa Bay had won three straight contests prior to losing a 6-5 ten-inning clash versus the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. Mets ace deGrom has allowed just twelve runs over 70.2 innings during his last ten starts. Since returning from an oblique strain on July 11, Odorizzi has allowed 12 runs during five starts. Back New York with a 500 unit wager on the money price posted at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
