Total: 6.50 | 105.00 Under
Both teams have been playing to several higher-scoring games of late, but I'm expecting those trends to end this evening in what I believe will be a classic DUEL.
New York has seen the total go OVER in six straight after its 5-2 loss here yesterday, while Atlanta has seen the total go OVER the number in two of its last three and in five of its last seven.
We have a great starting pitching matchup here and I expect these two starters to garner most of the headlines in tomorrow's summaries of this contest.
Max Scherzer gets the nod for the Mets, and he's 11-4 with a 2.13 ERA, while Kyle Wright is 20-5 with a 3.18 ERA for the Braves.
The winner of this series will win the National League East. In this big game, look for these big time pitchers to be the main focal point.
The play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
