Who Has the Betting Edge in the Battle of New York?

The New York Yankees and New York Mets are on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to contending for their respective division crowns, but there’s always tons of excitement when the Big Apple rivals square off. Sportsbooks opened the Mets as +127 home underdogs with a total of 9 for tonight’s contest.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 0-6 SU in their last six games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Yankees’ last 17 games on the road.
  • The Yankees are 5-1 SU in their last six games against right-handed starting pitchers.

Jaime Garcia and Robert Gsellman are expected to get the start for the Yanks and Mets, respectively. Garcia (5-8, 4.50 ERA) is 0-1 in two starts since being acquired by the Bronx Bombers, as the 31-year-old surrendered a pair of home runs and allowed three runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings of a no-decision vs Boston in his last appearance on Friday.

Gsellman (5-5, 6.16) has been sidelined since June 27 as a result of a strained left hamstring but was activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. The hurler posted a 1-0 mark with a 2.92 ERA in four rehab starts with Double-A Binghamton.

The OVER is trending when the pair of New York clubs get together. In the last seven between the Mets and Yankees, the OVER is 5-2.
