    New York Has Been Alternating Wins And Losses Of Late

    The Mets surged to 95-55 SU with a six-game winning streak earlier this month, but since then they are just 3-4 SU over their last seven games including Friday night's 5-2 road loss to the Braves. New York has alternated wins and losses over its last eight games and as a result, is 4-0 SU in its last games coming off of a loss.

    Jacob deGrom was forced to leave Friday night's start after six innings due to a blister on his pitching hand. The Mets ace has now allowed at least three runs in each of his last four starts, bumping his ERA up from 1.66 to 3.08 over that span.

    Atlanta's Offense Back On A Roll During Recent Hot Streak

    The Braves stumbled through a rare losing streak last week with an 0-3 SU run and the team scored only one run per game in those three losses. Atlanta has gone 5-1 SU since then including Friday's win, averaging 6.17 runs per game during this stretch.

    Matt Olson, Dansby Swanson, and Austin Riley all hit home runs off of Jacob deGrom on Friday night. Olson leads the Braves in RBI this season with 97, Swanson leads the club in batting average with a .276 and Riley leads Atlanta in home runs with 38 in 2022.

    Mets vs Braves Picks & Insights

    Mets: Keys To Victory

    While both of these teams rank in the top four in run production this season, the Braves have a slight edge on offense averaging 4.90 runs per game to New York's 4.75 runs per game. With this in mind, it will be up to Max Scherzer to make up the difference and to lead New York to a Mets vs Braves prediction win on the road.

    Braves: Keys To Victory

    Atlanta is 15-1 SU in Kyle Wright's last 16 starts. The one loss over that stretch came to the Mets, when Wright allowed six earned runs in a 6-4 loss on the road. Wright will need to be a lot better this time around to give Atlanta a shot at outdueling Max Scherzer and earning the upset win as a Mets vs Braves pick.
