Can it be called a double-header if the first game is already halfway over? Does that make it a game-and-a-half-header?
Who knows, but regardless what you call it, the Mets and Red Sox will finish their suspended game from Friday night on Saturday afternoon. As it stands, the Mets lead the Red Sox by a score of 4-3 in the bottom of the 4th.
But, we're not concerned about that game. In this article, we're going to focus on the betting odds for the second game, scheduled to begin at 7:10pm et.
Let's take a look at those odds and then I'll break down my best bet.
Mets vs. Red Sox odds, run line, and total
Mets vs. Red Sox prediction and pick
I think we're in for a pitchers duel on Saturday night.
James Paxton gets the start for the Red Sox tonight it's not just his 3.51 ERA that makes me think we's going to shine against the Mets. The fact he's left-handed it also going to play a big role. Over the last 30 days, the Mets OPS drops from .750 against righties to .639 against lefties, which is the fifth worst mark against left-handed pitchers over that time frame.
Meanwhile, the Mets will be rolling with Max Scherzer, who finally found something in his last outing, pitching 7.0 innings of one hit, zero run baseball against the Dodgers.
Let's root for defense and pitching tonight in the second game between the Mets and BoSox.
