New York Mets Betting
If you’re used to watching the NBA and the NFL, you’re used to the division leaders routinely pounding the cellar-dwelling teams most of the time. The elite win up to 80% of their games throughout the season or may even go as high as 90%, and they’re often nearly invincible at home. But, in baseball, a bad team will still win 30% or 40% of their games.
Whereas a division leader will win 65-70%, So if a lowly team in last place is playing the talented powerhouse in a 3 game series, the favorites may lose a game, without it being a big deal or a massive upset.
This year the Mets’ pitching rotation of Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz will dictate their fate. At the offensive end, their batting lineup will feature Curtis Granderson, David Wright, Michael Conforto, Lucas Duda, Neil Walker, Asdrubal Cabrera, Travis d’Arnaud and Alejandro De Aza.
