Bet on San Francisco to Beat the New York Mets Because…

They start Madison Bumgarner in this game. Bumgarner has the experience to dominate the Mets. MadBum has a 2.74 ERA. His WHIP is 1.02. His record is a very good 15-9. What’s really impressive about Bumgarner is that his road ERA is 3.39. That’s not too bad. In his road starts, Bumgarner allows opponents to bat .228 against him. MadBum hold the Mets to a .261 batting average from 157 at-bats.

Bet on the New York Mets to Beat San Francisco Because…

The Mets send Noah Syndergaard to the mound. Syndergaard has faced Giant batters only 51 times. He’s held the Giants to a stunning .176 batting average. The Giants only have 9 total hits from 51 at-bats versus the Mets. Syndergaard’s overall ERA is 2.60. He has a 1.15 WHIP.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Bumgarner has the edge over Syndergaard in what is expected to be a pitchers’ duel. Although Syndergaard’s overall numbers are terrific, he actually has a higher ERA when he starts at home than when he starts on the road. Syndergaard’s home ERA is 2.87 while his road ERA is 2.45.

That’s not the only reason to like the Giants. Syndergaard’s terrific batting average allowed against the Giants is based on only 51 at-bats. That’s too small of a sample to tell if the G-Men can get it done versus the Mets’ starter on Wednesday.

One thing to note is that Buster Posey, the Giants’ best hitter, is 3 out of 6 against Syndergaard during his career. If Posey can maintain that .500 batting average versus the Mets ace on Wednesday, the Giants should win this game by at least 2 runs.

My final score prediction is San Francisco 3, New York Mets 1.
