How To Bet On Cubs Mets – Mets Look To Gain Ground In NL East

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/4/2012 3:27:10 PM

The New York Mets have been among the pleasant surprises in the National League this season, contending with the Washington Nationals for a division title in the NL East, where the Phillies, Braves, and Marlins were all ranked among the sports betting favorites. The Mets will get an excellent chance to close the gap between them and Washington this MLB betting weekend with a three-game set against a Chicago Cubs’ team that has the worst record in the majors.

The Cubs are ranked 29th in the majors in runs scored on offense, a problem magnified by the fact that Chicago’s pitchers rank 25th in the majors in runs allowed. While they have hovered around the .500 mark at home, the Cubs are 11-30 on the road this season, but they have perhaps their most favorable matchup in the series opener. Travis Wood is riding a three-game win streak in which he has allowed just one earned run in 20.2 innings of work, and he pitched seven shutout innings in a 6-1 win over the Mets the last time he faced them. Wood will once again be matched up against Johan Santana, who took the loss in that last meeting despite allowing just two earned runs. Those runs were the only two that Santana has given up in his last 20 innings of work, which has included 14 combined innings of shutout ball against the Orioles and Dodgers. Something has to give when these teams meet again, but don’t expect the Mets to be able to solve Wood.

New York should be able to do a much better job offensively in the second game of the series, as they go up against Jeff Samardzija for the Cubs. Samrdzija is 6-7 with a 4.77 ERA, but has given up more than four earned runs in three of his last five outings, including allowing nine in just 4.1 innings in a 17-1 loss the last time he pitched against the Mets. Dillion Gee allowed four earned runs in five innings of work in a loss to the Cubs in his last meeting with them, and as long as he can match that effort New York should be able to get him the sports bet win this time around.

The Mets will once again be comfortable on the mound for the series finale with Jonathon Niese on the mound. Niese has gotten the win in each of his last three starts, and has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his last six. Chicago will counter with Chris Volstad and his 7.94 ERA, and with at least four runs allowed in his last seven starts, don’t expect the 25-year old to finally clinch his first sportsbook win as the Mets wrap up the series.
