San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets Prediction

Tonight, it's going to be David Peterson for the Mets, a left-handed pitcher who will replace Max Scherzer for the time being. Peterson has traded time in the minors and majors but in the majors, he has a 1.89 ERA through four appearances. That helps the confidence. In the last 30 days, Peterson still has a 4.68 xFIP with 9.3% of walks but has induced 53.3% of ground balls while allowing just 10% of line drives. Remember, it's also a smaller sample size. The Giants haven't been all that against lefties either, hitting a .166 ISO and wOBA of .304 in the last 30 days using the projected lineup. The Giants have struck out 24.9% of the time and have hit under 20% of line drives in the last 30 days against lefties. Peterson could have a solid night against this Giants lineup. The Giants, meanwhile, will pitch Alex Cobb. He has a 3.45 xFIP along with 24.3% strikeouts in the last 30 days but his ERA is telling a whole other story. Cobb has an ERA of 5.61 despite earning 69.4% of ground balls and giving up 14.3% of line drives in the last 30 days. That's extremely unlucky for Cobb. Sure, Cobb has allowed some power to righties but he’s been much better than his ERA suggests.  Plus, the Mets haven’t been all that better against righties, hitting a .143 ISO and wOBA of .328 in the last 30-days. The most impactful stat for the Mets is that they are hitting 45.8% of ground balls against righties in the last 30 days. Yeah, that’s not a good sign when going up against Cobb.   Therefore, I'll grab the Under 4 in the first five innings.
