Certain teams seem entrenched in the playoff chase year after year. Our free pick takes a gander at the Mets Cardinals as St. Louis would be in the wild card if the season ended today. Pivotal series for the Mets as well. We will look at the game price, starters, and any other factor that can sway the way you bet on this one at 8:15 PM on 8/23.
NY Playoff Chase
Good news for Mets fans is that they are only 4.5 games out of the wild card. Flip side of the coin is that several teams are between them and the Cardinals. Fans of the NY team are not enthralled that Niese is the pitcher that starts off this key encounter. 5.30 ERA equates to him getting little leeway and a quick yank if things go awry right away. This is because two out of three wins at St. Louis would be huge for this team in both momentum and getting it down to 3.5 games.
Garcia Not Much Better
He is a whole run better in ERA but does this equate to STL being -175 ML at home. Good production is one thing but this is a team that relies on a lot of smoke and mirrors. The STL system is thriving again but the latent talent of the Mets can overload them in the situation. I would under no circumstance entertain a first five innings wager on the ML Mets as underdogs in this one.
Wonderful mid week series in baseball going on. Pivotal games made oh so much better with Bet33 in your corner. A premier sportsbook for the summer, football season, and every other time each year. Go with the Mets ML for the full game as +160 is an excellent deal for a talented and desperate team on 8/23.
