Marlins vs Mets Betting Pick
This game will be played at Citi Field at 7:10 PM ET on Thursday, July 7, 2022.
Why Bet The Mets:
✅ Daniel Castano will get the starting call for the Marlins, and the 27-year-old left-hander is 1-1 with a strong 2.42 ERA and a troublesome 1.35 WHIP in four starts and three relief appearances (26 innings pitched) in 2022. Castano’s FIP sits at 4.62, suggesting an inevitable regression, while Daniel ranks in the 31st percentile in the expected batting average and 43rd percentile in xwOBA.
✅ Trevor Williams (1-5; 4.34 ERA) will get the nod for the Mets and look to bounce back from a rough outing against the Texas Rangers last Saturday. The current Marlins lineup has just ten hits, one home run, .295 on-base percentage, and .691 OPS in 41 at-bats against Williams.
✅ The Mets have gone 11-6 in their last 17 encounters with the Marlins. They’ve dominated Miami at home lately, going 13-5 in their previous 18 meetings at Citi Field. The Mets have scored 33 runs in their last five home contests against the Marlins.
Wednesday’s games have been excluded from the analysis, and the 39-40 Miami Marlins carried a six-game winning streak into a home interleague matchup with the Los Angeles Angels. Last Tuesday, they outlasted the Halos 2-1, and Sandy Alcantara pitched another gem, finishing with ten strikeouts and just two hits allowed across eight innings of work.
The Marlins occupied the fourth spot in the NL East on Wednesday, trailing the New York Mets by huge ten games. Miami was only three games behind the bottom wild card in the National League.
New York Mets
The 50-31 New York Mets met the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night to decide the winner of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park. After a 7-4 victory in Monday’s opener, the Mets suffered a tough 1-0 defeat on Tuesday. It was their fifth loss in eight outings, and the Mets failed to score for the second time in six games.
New York was topping the NL East on Wednesday, only 2.5 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves. The Mets have struggled at the plate in the last couple of weeks, slashing only .221/.281/.376 with 12 home runs and 20 doubles across 362 at-bats.
