New York Mets (-115)
The New York Mets are off to a good start this season winning 6 of their first 9 games including their last 4 in a row. The Mets are hitting the ball well enough averaging 3.78 runs per game but it’s their pitching that has really been the difference maker so far allowing just 2.78 runs per game.
On the hill for the Mets today is Dillon Gee who has shown glimpses of being a number one type starting pitcher but he has also show signs of being a total gas can like in his last outing where he allowed 5 runs and 8 hits over just 5 innings of work.

The Miami Marlins are off to a slow start with just 3 wins over their first 9 games although they have won their last 2 in a row and looked pretty good doing it outscoring the Braves 14-4. Like most teams that are struggling it’s pitching that is the problem and the Marlins are no different allowing 4.67 runs per game.
Starting for the Marlins today is Jarred Cosart who pitched great in his last start allowing just 1 run and 3 hits but even with that great performance he still came away with the loss as the Marlins couldn’t get him any run support at all losing 2-0 to the Rays.
Miami Marlins Trends
Marlins are 3-12 in their last 15 vs. a team with a winning record.
Marlins are 1-4 in Cosarts last 5 starts.
I’m going to go with the Mets as a small favorite over the Marlins in this one. The Mets are playing at home and they are playing pretty good as a team so far this season while the Marlins are looking a little suspect especially in the bullpen.
