The Cubs and the Mets meet to close out their series today from Chicago. All MLB odds can be found daily at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Cubs actually have a chance to complete a series sweep against the Mets this afternoon. On Tuesday they won their second straight game versus New York scoring five runs on 12 hits and were led by prospect Anthony Rizzo who had two hits. On Wednesday the Cubs will turn to Jeff Samardzjia who has lost his last three starts. Samardzjia has allowed 84 hits and 83 innings of work good enough for a 4.34 ERA.
The Mets are hitting a little bit of a rough patch as they have lost four games in a row. Yesterday they scored 4 runs on 9 hits which was not good enough as they ended up losing their second straight to the woeful Cubs. They will try to salvage at least one game in the series when they pitched John Niese this afternoon. Niese has won three of his last four decisions and has struck out 79 batters and 81 innings of work this season so far.
Chicago is 6-2 in their last eight home games against a team with a losing road record, 11-28 in their last 39 games overall, and 0-4 in Samadzjia’s last four starts. New York is 8-4 in their last 12 games as a favorite, 0-6 in their last six games against the N.L. Central, and 2-6 in Niese’s last eight starts as a favorite. The Mets are 3-10 in their last 13 games in Chicago.
While the Mets are playing some lackluster baseball right now we look for them to break through today with a win. Take the Mets as a moneyline favorite in this game so prior to placing a wager read online sportsbook reviews.
