3* No Doubt Rout on NY Mets
Cincinnati vs. NY Mets,
05/21/2013 19:10 EDT,
Score: 4 - 0
Money Line: +110 NY Mets
The Cincinnati Reds have really struggled on the road this year. They have a .243 batting average and an 11-12 record. They almost lost last night against the Mets and I think their fortunes will change for today’s game.
Mike Leake is getting the start for Cincinnati. He has a 1.874 WHIP in his 4 starts on the road and he has given up 34 hits in just 21.3 innings pitched. He does not have a lot of experience against the Mets posting a 1-1 career record against them.
The Reds are 0-4 in their last 4 games when facing a left handed starter and 1-4 in Leake’s last 5 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150. Jon Niese will start for New York today and the lefty is 5-2 in his last 7 starts when playing on 4 days of rest. There is simply too much value to pass up on the Mets today.
