Colorado Rockies vs New York Mets Predictions
Key Stat: The Mets and the Rockies can easily cover the run line
- Ryan Feltner (2-4) averages a 5.88 ERA
- The Mets have shown huge potential offensively
- Jacob deGrom (2-1) is still in his first games in 2022
The series between the NY Mets and the COL Rockies promises to be quite interesting as one of the most conservative title contenders will face off one of the highest-scoring teams this year. The Rockies relied much on their attack throughout the current campaign as their pitchers significantly underperformed along the process. The team has the worst defensive stats among the entire MLB allowing 692 runs across 125 matches. However, they also tend to score themselves, but this has only been enough for 12th place in the NL. On Thursday night, they will give Ryan Feltner (2-4) a chance to redeem himself for his inconsistent performance this year. The young starting pitcher averages a 5.88 ERA and 1.39 WHIP, while his 49 strikeouts across 12 appearances shouldn’t trouble the Mets.
Their opponents from New York are currently second in the standings behind the LA Dodgers. Holding onto a decent 79-46 record gives them a lot of room to experiment as they will certainly try something out in order to sort out their optimal team for the Playoffs. With Jacob deGrom (2-1) back on the pitch, the Mets are really looking dangerous, but he still needs some more time to adapt to the current situation in the MLB. He has played just 4 games since his return this month which might take its toll percentage-wise against the Rockies. We think that the O/U line is quite low and we will try to take advantage of that picking the “Over” in Game 1 at Citi Field.
Key Stat: The Yankees are ready to bounce back
- The Yankees are top contenders for the World Series
- The Athletics don’t have the needed depth in their squad
- Jameson Taillon (11-4) has been one of the most consistent pitchers
The New York Yankees suffered a huge downfall in their overall performance as they lost the majority of their matches throughout the last month. They were surpassed by the Astros in the AL standings, meaning that they will most likely finish in 2nd place which is still a decent entry point for the Playoffs. The team, however, has proven to be quite dangerous this season as their hitters were having a blast up until July. Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo, and Giancarlo Stanton have been unstoppable throughout the majority of the campaign as Judge has a huge lead on top of the table with 48 HRs across 120 games.
The Athletics, on the other hand, cannot really get something positive from this season as they are last in the standings with a 46-79 record. However, they still in the battle for a higher finish, but this won’t give them any prize. Moreover, they have been swept by the Yankees in their first and only series this season. James Kaprielian’s (3-7) performance might be considered a decent one as this is his 3rd season in the MLB. However, he is nowhere near Jameson Taillon (11-4) who has led the Yankees to many memorable and hard-fought victories in 2022. We think that it’s high-time the Yankees made their statement for the World Series and went on a decent winning streak right ahead of the Playoffs. We will take their spread on Thursday supporting these high expectations.
