New York Mets will be looking for a bounce back win in the middle game of the three-match series against Chicago Cubs on Tuesday evening at Citi Field. The Mets’ hitters had a nightmare of an affair last night in the opening outing of the series as Chicago stunned them 2-5 on the road. The Cubs did an excellent on knocking Chris Bassitt out after just fewer than four innings as the Mets’ pitcher had his shortest start in the last three months. On the other side, Javier Assad celebrated his maiden win of the season for the Cubs.

Rafael Ortega and Zach McKinstry both homered last night for Chicago as the Mets missed numerous chances to claw themselves back into the game. Their hitters went 1-for-9 while being in scoring positions last night. Nonetheless, the Mets are still 1 ½ wins ahead of Atlanta Braves atop the National League East standings thanks to San Francisco’s surprising win over the defending champions later that night. The Mets are huge favorites to rebound on Tuesday with Jacob deGrom on the mound. Their right-hander is 5-1 this season with a 1.66 ERA and a 0.55 WHIP in the process. It is very hard to imagine a scenario in which we would see anything other but a commanding win for the hosts tonight. You can back the Mets to win in -2.5 run line at the odds of -103.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Adrian Sampson gave away just one run in his previous start on Thursday against the Reds

  • The Mets’ batters did not shine last night and they could potentially get off to a slow start tonight as well
  • The Mets are still massive favorites, but we believe Sampson can get away without surrendering a run in the inaugural inning
  • Jacob deGrom is very unlikely to do so

Jacob deGrom will come into this game on the back of three successive wins, including the 10-0 thumping of Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday evening. He allowed just three innings over seven scoreless runs for the Pirates. Sampson, on the other side, surrendered just one run in six innings as his Cubs fell 4-3 to the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. Could Sampson survive the opening inning without giving away a run tonight against the Mets? Looking at the numbers, it is a likeable scenario and we are going with the Under 0.5 runs in the first inning pick at the odds of -159.
