We are targeting game two of the Mets and Giants doubleheader here, which features two of the best pitchers. Here's my best bet for tonight's New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants game.

New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants Best Bet: Attacking Tonight's Pitchers Duel

I cannot stress this enough when placing this bet make sure it is the second game of the doubleheader featuring Scherzer and Webb. This game's total is only 6.5, even with doubleheaders returning to 9 innings. I think this game has serious potential to end 2-1 and feature 6 or 7 completely scoreless innings. Max Scherzer is the main pitcher I trust here as I attached it with Giants under 5.5 to reduce the -190 juice into something playable. Although the Giants have scored 6+ runs in 3 of their 9 games I wouldn’t predict tonight’s a night that continues as they have their hardest challenges of the season thus far.

1u - No Runs 2nd Inning / Giants Under 5.5 runs (-130) (Bet $130 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

Both Logan Webb and Max Scherzer are polarizing talents who I trust regardless of who steps in the box. When I normally bet these NRSI’s I will try to write about who I project they’ll face in the lineup and their historic stats vs them. As for tonight, we just won’t know. Injuries could pop up in game 1 or we could last-minute lineup changes. All I know is these are two All-Stars and this total is 6.5 for a reason. I don’t think the Giants score 6+ with that being the total and the 2nd inning is one of the lower-scoring innings in the history of baseball. Playing the odds here.

I’ll end this by sharing a little nugget that I’ve noticed since NRSI’s became a thing. Whenever they are juiced beyond belief I have noticed that if you pair it with a decently easy leg on DraftKings they reduce the juice a lot. For whatever reason you will look at a NRSI that is -190 to single bet and go to same game parlay it and the leg will be -165 for whatever reason. It’s super strange but it’s a nice way to target plays with an edge without paying unforgiving juice. This play feels so safe to me and is by far the first thing that popped up when I’ve scrolled the books.
