Giants vs Mets Runline Wager Looks Promising

The San Francisco Giants (25-26) visit the fading New York Mets (21-28) for a three-game series starting Friday. The Giants have won seven of their last 10 and are 7.5 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. New York has dropped three straight and trail Philadelphia by 15 games in the NL East. Kyle Harrison is the scheduled starter for the Giants on Friday.

The Mets will counter with Christian Scott. The Mets are favored -135 and the total is 8-under (-125). The Giants vs Mets runline sees New York -1.5 runs at +160. If you want the Giants +1.5 runs the price is -180.

The Giants have been hitting the ball well, moving up to No. 9 in team batting. San Francisco doesn’t have a lot of power, ranking No. 21 in home runs with 47. The Giants are averaging 4.2 runs per game and 4.3 runs when on the road.

The pitching staff has struggled some and the Giants are No. 25 in team ERA. That’s been a key reason why the San Francisco Giants standings see the team below .500. The bullpen hasn’t been very good at all, sitting with a 4.48 ERA.

New York is averaging 4.3 runs per game even though the Mets are No. 17 in team batting average. The Mets are No. 16 in home runs with 51. New York doesn’t score at the same pace at home, although there isn’t much difference in the offense against right-handed starters or left-handers.

The pitching hasn’t been terrible for the Mets, who sit No. 17 in team ERA. The bullpen has been decent, as have most of the starters, but a few have struggled and that’s hurt the team stats. When looking at the offensive and defensive stats, the New York Mets standings should be a little better.

The team’s X-W/L record is 23-26, so they should have won a couple more games than they have.

Friday’s Game

The Giants are 8-2 when Harrison starts and have won his last seven starts. Considering the Mets have dropped all three of Scott’s starts, it’s a little surprising to see New York favored so much in this one. Yes, the Giants have been on the road for a bit, but Harrison has better numbers.

The MLB predictions today are going to have the Giants winning the game, although when you see a line like this that doesn’t make much sense, it’s usually a red flag. If you like the Mets to get the win, considering playing the Giants vs Mets runline and taking the +160 on New York instead of laying the -135. Those who like the Giants should take the +125 and be done with it. Strictly from a value standpoint, San Francisco is the way to play this one, but use caution.

Saturday’s Game

Jordan Hicks should get the start for the Giants, with Luis Severino going for the Mets. The Giants are 5-5 when Hicks takes the mound despite his solid 2.38 ERA. Severino has pitched well for the Mets, although they’re just 3-6 when he starts.

The game is going to be close to even, but could see playing the Giants vs Mets runline on this game if you like San Francisco. Hicks shouldn’t allow many runs and the Giants could pull out a victory by a couple of runs.

Sunday’s Game

Logan Webb and Sean Manaea are the scheduled starters here and both pitchers have been solid for the most part. The Giants have gone 5-6 when Webb starts even though he’s pitching to a 3.03 ERA. The Mets are 6-3 with Manaea on the mound and he’s kept the team in nearly every game. The Giants don’t show much difference between right-handed starters and southpaws.

The under could be the safest bets here, as New York’s scoring differential at home should come into play at some point in the series.
