The New York Mets and Chicago Cubs will meet Monday at Wrigley Field. All MLB odds can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Mets have certainly proven to be a pesky bunch this season and they have climbed all the way to second place in the NL East. The have been streaky recently and are coming off a 6-5 loss to the Yankees last night in the finale of their weekend series. Ace pitcher RA Dickey finally let some runs across the plate and could not stop the hot Yankee bats. Johan Santana will take the mound today having won 4 of his last 5 starts. Santana is having a great season bouncing back from injury and has 84 strikeouts and 84 innings pitched this season.
The Cubs continued to man the National League Central basement and may be arguably the worst team in baseball. They have now lost four straight games on the heels of losing to Arizona 5-1 on Sunday. Matt Garza actually turned in a good pitching performance yesterday, but the Cubs’ bats were not up to the task. The Cubs will start Travis Wood tonight in hopes that he can build on a great last outing in which he defeated the White Sox 2-1 and only give up one run in six innings of work.
Santana is obviously the better pitcher in this one. If the Mets bats come to play which we think they will this is an easy Mets moneyline pick today at sportsbooks.
