My Best Bet for Atlanta vs New York

OVER 7.5

Both teams have been hitting the ball well recently and as for the starters, deGrom is better on the road than he is at home, while Foltynewicz is a bit of a disaster on the road. I think that both teams will get their opportunities to score but the Mets should be able to put up a crooked number on Foltynewicz and carry the OVER.
