Picks, Prediction for Mets vs Braves on Wednesday, June 7

Braves Rally in Comeback Win

The Atlanta Braves (36-24) pulled off a three-run comeback in Tuesday’s clash with the New York Mets (30-31). The Braves trailed 4-1 in the third inning due to a pair of home runs by the Mets. Atlanta caught fire in the sixth, totaling four runs to take a 5-4 lead. New York hopes to bounce back from the 6-4 loss, as it sits 6½ games back from the Braves in the National League East. The sportsbook favors Atlanta for the second time in the series.

Mets Failing to Eclipse Four Runs

New York simply cannot get past the four-run mark. In fact, it has not done it in seven consecutive games, averaging 2.7 runs during the span. Shortstop Francisco Lindor seems to be finally climbing out of a slump. He went hitless over a four-game span and has bounced back with one hit in back-to-back games. However, Lindor has a career batting average of .160 against the Braves’ Charlie Morton. Continue to avoid Lindor in MLB picks.

Braves Divisional Lead Dwindling?

Atlanta has won three consecutive games and must continue its streak. The Miami Marlins are narrowing the gap in the NL East, winning five consecutive games. The Braves hold a three-game lead and remain the MLB lines’ clear favorite to win the division (-600). Second baseman Ozzie Albies could continue to lead the charge in this series after totaling five hits in the last two games. Albies also had three RBIs over the two games. Take the two-time All-Star to knock in a run in MLB betting.

Starting Pitchers

Max Scherzer (5-2, 3.21 ERA) vs Charlie Morton (5-6, 3.62)

Wednesday’s pitching matchup should be a treat with three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and two-time All-Star Morton on the mound. Scherzer got off to a slow start in the first month of the season. Since then, he has looked like the future Hall of Famer we know. Scherzer has allowed three earned runs over his last four starts. The Mets are also riding a four-game winning streak with the veteran pitcher on the bump. During the span, Scherzer has an ERA of 1.08, with opponents hitting .182.

Atlanta needs Morton to keep pace with Scherzer. Morton’s play has dipped in his last three starts, with a 5.71 ERA. Opponents have also hit .290, and the Braves have lost three consecutive games with Morton starting.

Mets vs Braves Head-to-Head

The Braves continue to dominate the Mets, winning eight of the last 10 meetings. However, Scherzer’s presence could change Wednesday’s result. New York is 1-1 outright and against MLB spreads in his last two starts against Atlanta.
