The New York Mets have been swept by the Kansas City Royals and are now spiraling out of control. Now, they have to hit the road to take on the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles.
There's really only one way to bet on this game: continue fading the Mets. Yes, it really might be just that easy.
Let's take a look at the odds.
Mets vs. Orioles odds, run line, and total
Mets vs. Orioles prediction and pick
The Mets numbers over the past month have been rough. Over that time frame, they're 18th in OPS and 24th in batting average. The orioles, on the other hand, are 11th in OPS and 12th in batting average of the same time frame.
David Peterson will get the start for the Mets tonight, and while his numbers have been solid as a reliever, he's been terrible when he's put in a starting role. In 11 starts this season, he sports a 6.46 ERA and a 1.638 WHIP. He also has an 8.41 ERA on pitching on the road this season.
There's nothing we can do as baseball bettors right now except to fade the Mets until further notice. They are a dumpster fire that's not going out any time soon.
