The New York Yankees and the New York Mets battle it out in the Subway Series starting tonight. All odds and trends for MLB games can be found by visiting Top Bet sportsbook.
The Yankees are still right in the thick of the AL East standings despite not hitting their stride as of yet. Their pitching and hitting has been average as they have just been hanging around and now are just a ½ game out of first. Tonight they will look to Hiroki Kuroda. The righty has pitched pretty well this season pitching to a 3.82 ERA overall.
The Mets are one of the biggest surprises in baseball and they are still very much alive in the AL East race. David Wright is hitting a blistering .362 thus far and their starting staff has been solid as well. Johan Santana will make his first start since throwing a no-hitter a week ago today. He has a very low 2.38 ERA and has only allowed 49 hits in 68 innings pitched.
The Yankees are 4-1 in their last five home games, 4-1 in their last five games against the N.L. East, and 40-18 in their last 58 games against a left handed starter. The Mets are 2-5 in their last seven interleague games, 1-6 in their last seven game one of a series, and 2-5 in Santana’s last seven road starts. The Mets are 1-4 in the last five meetings of these two.
We think Kuroda and Santana will pitch well enough where the under is a safe bet in this one at the sports book.
