MLB Wagering : Smoltz on the Mets
One large contract and even those that deal in MLB wagering can be lead astray. Max’s contract with the Nationals was widely believed to be the final piece in assembling the best starting staff in the majors. Not so says a legend that would know so. Someone slated to be inducted into the Hall of Fame sat down with a local New York paper to give his thoughts on the state of the game. He makes a firm stand that their is a tea with just as much talent as the Braves had in their heyday. Alas they do not reside in our nation’s capitol.
MLB Wagering : NL East Power House
With the vast resources that being in New York generates, let us hope that the Mets put to good use their ample bankroll to hold onto what they assembled. Smoltz says that the young guns for New York’s other team is at least equal or could be better than him, Glavine, and Maddux. That is quite a compliment to issue. With Zack Wheeler due back from injury, the Mets have that same problem that caused them to contemplate a six man rotation. Too many arms and not enough days. It is tempting to put Colon out to pasture but the man gives you so many innings that a cheap insurance policy like him does not come around every day. Let us look at the names and why we should embrace the Mets for the upcoming months.
Both are Snakebit on Offense
National and Mets fans have had to endure being ravaged on the offensive side of the plate. They will need every inning to keep pace with each other as only two games separate the Mets from the NL East leading Nats. Their names are not as house hold as Scherzer or Strasburg but they will be on the lips of everyone come playoff time. DeGrom, Harvey, Syndergaard, and Matz are bolstered by the older arms of Colon and Niese. Many potent ways to shut down the opposition and cash in on the team total unders for their opposition.
This is the key for our wagering concerns. The totals will of course be on the low side but after the number comes out, the team totals are tied to it. There will be great value in the under on the opposition as linesmakers will not deviate this. Take it from this soon to be Hall of Famer, the Mets will be gold on the team totals for the teams they shut down this summer. Good fortune and we will talk again here at HRWager.
