Baltimore Orioles vs New York Mets Betting Pick, Odds, Predictions & Lines

On Tuesday evening, the Mets will host the Orioles for the first game of the brief 2-game midweek series. It’s a part of a 5-game homestand for the Mets. The first three games went pretty well for them as they swept the Diamondbacks. The Mets are on a decent run of form at the moment, having won 5 straight games and 7 in the last 10. They’re now at 16-13 which puts them at the top of the NL East and third overall in the National League. The Orioles are coming off a victory last night against the Red Sox in the final matchup of a 4-game series. However, they lost the previous three contests. Currently, they’re at the bottom of the AL East and have the third-worst record in the American League with 16-19. This is the first series of the season between two teams. The second one is scheduled for June. The weather for the game will be mostly cloudy, with 64% cloud coverage. The wind is expected at 13 mph WNW.

Notes On The Baltimore Orioles

After decent performances at the start of the month, the Orioles have dropped 5 games out of the last 8. Their pitching has mostly let them down as they allowed at least 4 runs in their last 8 losses. They now rank 16th in the league with 4.32 runs allowed per game. They struggled on offense even more and have only 3.85 runs per game, which is the 5th worst record in the league. In their last game, they’ve beaten the divisional leaders Boston thanks to a pair of home runs from Mancini and Mountcastle. Trey Mancini now has 7 home runs and 29 RBI which ties him for fourth in the league. Cedric Mullins is the batting average leader with .312.

Tonight, the Orioles are sending their best pitcher to the mounds. John Means is coming off a no-hitter in Seattle and is a perfect 4-0 so far. His 1.37 ERA is third in the nation and he also has the second-best WHIP at 0.67. This will be leftie’s third career start vs the Mets. He’s 1-1 so far, with a 3.97 ERA.

Notes On The New York Mets

The Mets have been on a roll since losing to the Cardinals on May 5th. They’re now sole leaders of, admittedly weak, NL East. In their last 5 games, the Mets are averaging 4.8 runs per game. It’s a significant improvement over their 3.48 season average. It seems that hiring a hitting coach Hugh Quattlebaum is starting to pay dividends. However, this 4-2 win over Arizona on Sunday proved to be a costly one. The ace Jacob DeGrom was forced to leave the game and will be out indefinitely.

Marcus Stroman will make his 7th start for the Mets tonight. So far, he’s 3-3 with a 2.12 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. He was fantastic in his first three starts but has allowed 11 runs in his last 14 innings. The opposing batters are hitting .220 against him this season with 3 home runs. Stroman played the Orioles 13 times in his career, starting 12 games. His record so far is 5-5 with a 3.41 ERA.

Baltimore Orioles vs New York Mets Betting Pick & Prediction:UNDER 7

So far this season, betting the UNDER was the way to go when John Means starts. Baltimore’s pitcher started 7 times and 5 of those games went under. Plus, two of the Mets’ best hitters, Nimmo and Davies are injured. The Orioles’ offense is also nothing special and we can see this game easily going UNDER.
