MLB FREE PICK: New York Mets +115

There's no reason the Mets should be an underdog at home tonight against the Yankees. New York will send out first-half sensation R.A. Dickey, who is an unbelievable 11-1 with a 2.00 ERA and 0.889 WHIP in 14 starts. Dickey hasn't allowed a single earned in his last 42 and 2/3 innings of work.

While Dickey hasn't faced the Yankees in 2012, he went 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in two starts against them in 2011.

While New York is one of the best teams in baseball and will send out their ace C.C. Sabathia, they should not be favored in this game. Dickey has without question been the better of the two starters in 2012. In fact, the Yankees are just 2-5 in Sabathia's last 7 starts as a road favorite of -110 to -150 and are 0-4 in their last 4 road games with the total set at 6.5 or lower.

New York is 10-1 in Dickeys last 11 starts as an underdog of +110 to +150, 8-0 in Dickeys last 8 home starts, and 6-0 in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600. BET THE METS!
