New York Mets vs Colorado Rockies Pick

1u - Mets 1st 5 Innings/Moneyline (-135) (Bet $135 to win $100)

*Odds available at PointsBet at time of publishing*

I see this bet in the -150’s on other books but if you wanna take similar odds I would make a Same Game Parlay on DraftKings or BetMGM and do double result and o1.5 NYM Team Total for also -135. This is great value though on taking the Mets who enter this game as -330 favorites. We just need the lead after five innings to win the game. Nearly 200 cents on the dollar is better than moneyline and all we need is the lead halfway through, this is a bargain.

New York Mets vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

So why do I love this bet? Max Scherzer is on the mound for the Mets and they face German Marquez. I could end the article there and most will understand but allow me to deep dive. The Mets have hit the double result in every game against Colorado this series and tonight they are going for the sweep. Max Scherzer has been down as of late but he’s also been facing some of the most elite offenses in the league, he now gets a Rockies team who hats just .235 on the road. This Rockies team cannot hit away from Coors and they are 15-77 against Scherzer through their careers which is a .194 team average. I expect Scherzer to do big things.

In order to win this bet, we will need Scherzer to get some run support and I love picking on Marquez. German Marquez has allowed 2+ runs in 21/24 games and now faces a Mets team that hits .266 against righties. Marquez is slightly better on the road than he is at home but he’s far from a great pitcher regardless of where he plays. He has already allowed five runs to this Mets team back in May and if that happens again we will be in safe hands with Mad Max on the mound. This is a no-brainer play and we will take advantage of these favorable odds. Let's roll!
