Why Bet The Mets:
✅ Chris Bassitt (7-7; 3.72 ERA) will get the ball for the Mets, and the 33-year-old righty has done an excellent job as of late. Over his previous six starts and 40.2 innings of work, Bassitt has registered a sparkling 2.43 ERA, 2.83 FIP, and 41/5 K/BB ratio.
✅ Bassitt is 1-2 with a 3.66 ERA in three meetings with Miami in 2022. The current Marlins have just 14 hits and .577 OPS in 61 at-bats against him. Since the All-Star break, the Marlins have posted an underwhelming .260/.300/.356 slash line with four home runs and eight doubles across 208 at-bats.
✅ The Mets’ bullpen is 6-3 with eight saves in July. Through 71.2 innings of work so far this month, New York’s relievers have compiled a strong 2.89 ERA, 10.3 K/9, 2.9 BB/9, and .274 BABIP.
The 61-37 Mets are searching for their fourth straight victory. They just swept a two-game home series against the New York Yankees, outlasting the best team in the majors 6-3 and 3-2. The Mets are topping the NL East, three games ahead of the Atlanta Braves and ten ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies.
New York is hitting .261/.322/.400 since the All-Star break while posting a 3.00 ERA and .240 opposing batting average. Chris Bassitt was charged for a loss last Saturday despite a strong display in a 2-1 home defeat to the San Diego Padres. He fanned 11 and yielded a couple of runs on four hits across seven frames of work.
At the time of writing, the 46-52 Marlins started the closing contest of a four-game series at Great American Ball Park. Miami was looking to tie the set, and the Marlins have gone just 3-4 in their first seven showings in the second half of the season.
Sandy Alcantara will get the nod Friday, and the 26-year-old right-hander is 9-4 with a shiny 1.81 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and 133/36 K/BB ratio in 20 starts (144.1 innings pitched) in 2022. Alcantara has recorded a microscopic 1.24 ERA and 1.81 FIP over his previous four appearances in July to go with a 36/6 K/BB ratio through 29 innings of work. Sandy is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in three dates with the Mets this season.
