Atlanta Braves @ New York Mets
Despite me being a Mets fan I am loving my team to take the W in today’s contest against the Atlanta Braves. Jacob deGrom posted a 2.11 ERA at home last year in 13 starts and I expect the same results this season while actually being 100% healthy and he’s going to start his successful season right here against the Braves. The Braves do have a solid line up, however with deGrom’s stuff, they won’t be able to keep up with the Mets offense. Which leads me to “Big Sexy”! Wow, hate to see it, he was a solid pitcher on the Mets. However, he dominated against teams like the Phillies, Braves, and Padres. The Mets are back and are just missing one solid bat, David Wright. But, that won’t effect the Mets putting runs on the board. The Mets will be producing runs early on in this game as Colon has basically two simple pitches, a fastball and change up. I can’t see him mowing down the Mets offense here and Atlanta’s bullpen is just horrendous. Take the Mets -195 in this one.
