Mets Giants : MLB Free Pick for 8/18
Mets Giants have seen two teams since the All-Star break fall off the face of the earth. Now with two established starters going for them at 10PM, the total is just 6 1/2 runs for this one. Can the offenses of either team make headway in this one for a possible over? Can the Giants ML which is getting more expensive as the day goes be the path to profit here? Let us look at these wagering issues right now here at the HRW.
Mets Giants : Hot Starters
Sad thing for the Mets at 60-60 is how they are wasting some of the recent performances from their starters. Take DeGrom who will be on the mound tonight for NYM. Last three games, he has just been plain nasty on the mound. His WHIP and ERA are the same in the last three games at a tiny 0.87. He has issued just four walks to 20 K’s. Alas he is just 1-0 in those three starts. Now he is on the road and getting +146 to boot. Cant see him just getting shelled by a Giants team that is far from hot tonight.
Bumgarner Bringing it Also
Madison is doing well for the Giants of late also. 1.10 WHIP to the tune of a 2.25 ERA is quality stuff. Concerned about his seven walks but he seems to be working out of jams well at this point. Facing the New York Mets offense has seen the ML on the Giants get more expensive from -145 to -156. The sharps have it right for the offerings of the entire game but we see value in another bet type tonight.
First five innings Mets +140. DeGrom has been lights out recently. We can not project many scenarios where the Giants come out strong against him. Bumgarner is quality also but over the course of five innings, Mets might have the advantage here. A +140 ML on the five inning line has some good value on the Mets. That is our free pick of the day. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at the HRW.
