New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview
Ricky Gray | September 19, 2022
Max Scherzer is back on the mound for the Mets in this National League matchup.
The New York Mets have a 93-55 record this season and lead the NL East but are only a few games ahead of the Atlanta Braves.
After four straight wins, the Mets are preparing to face the Milwaukee Brewers, who have a 78-68 record and are second in the NL Central.
The tale of the tape in this matchup is pitching, with Max Scherzer taking the mound for the Mets. With a 9-4 record this season and an ERA of 2.26, Scherzer has the Mets in a good spot.
As a batting group, the Mets are one of the best teams in Major League Baseball. They have a team batting average of .258 and a batting average of .331.
Leading the batters is Jeff McNeil, who has a .320 batting average and an on-base percentage of .377 this season. Pete Alonso leads the team with 35 home runs and has a .267 batting average.
Surprisingly enough, the Mets come into this game as +100 underdogs. One reason for this is that they have several pitchers that are on the injured list, including relief pitcher Drew Smith.
The Milwaukee Brewers are sending out starting pitcher, Corbin Burnes. Burnes is one of their best starting pitchers, with a record of 10-7 with a 2.97 ERA over 179 innings.
Through this time, Burnes has thrown 219 strikeouts and only allowed 129 hits and 22 home runs. He gives the Brewers the best chance at beating the New York Mets tonight.
This is a tough call but we’ll go with the New York Mets on the road at +100.
Ricky’s Pick: New York Mets +100, UNDER
