Mets vs Braves Prediction


We like the Braves to get the win in this one, and at home, they are a good pick on the money line. However, with a payout of -193, we recommend taking the under, as we have the final score at 5-4 in favor of the Braves, giving us some room to spare with the line sitting at 9.5 runs.

Looking at the starting pitcher’s projections, we have Adrian Houser finishing with five strikeouts and Reynaldo Lopez with five as well. If you’re looking for a player prop, you could look at the over/under for strikeouts for either of these starters.
