Mets vs. Padres prediction

Let’s begin with the pitching matchup. Joe Musgrove is an NL Cy Younger candidate this season; he’s at the moment +1400 to win the award on BetMGM (fifth greatest). His peripheral numbers are fairly spectacular, too.

In accordance with Baseball Savant, Musgrove ranks above common or nice in most classes. These embrace (however will not be restricted to) hard-hit%, xERA, barrel%, and xSLG. Carrasco is just not at that degree but this season.

Carrasco was bombed in June, leading to a 6.37 ERA throughout six begins. His three begins in July have proven some vital enchancment from the veteran. Nevertheless, these three begins are in opposition to three below-average offenses: the Cubs, Marlins and Rangers.

At face worth, it might seem that the Padres are in the identical boat, rating nineteenth in runs scored this season. Whereas they’ve struggled to attain at house, they’ve the third-best street offense within the majors.

With Carrasco getting crushed up by good offenses this season, it might seem doable {that a} repeat is in retailer. The Mets do want a stopper, so maybe they play in desperation mode.

The Mets will not be a worthy guess for the evening. As a substitute, the Padres on the runline (+1.5) are -190 and a fantastic guess.
