Our Prediction:

New York Mets will win

New York Mets – Cincinnati Reds Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 19:10

Roark has pitched to a 3.24 ERA through his first five starts of the year. Hes struck out 24 and allowed just two home runs, but hes issued 11 free passes including three over five innings his last time out. His BABIP is an uncharacteristically high .370, but hes stranding 81.6 percent of baserunners. He hasnt gone more than 5 1/3 innings in a single start this year as his pitch counts have been high.

The Mets also offer the better offense and with the Reds just 4-10 on the road, New York is worth the -1.5 gamble. In searching for value, the best play tonight is the Mets runline (-1.5, +130). Meanwhile, Roark owns healthy walk (7.0%) and hard-contact (30.4%) rates but his SIERA is up to 4.43 and unlike Wheeler, hes not striking out many hitters (19.5%). Theres no question they have the edge in the pitching matchup, as Wheeler is missing bats at a 10.5% rate and currently owns an elite 25.0% contact rate.

I understand New York being favored on the road, because the Mets have been playing better baseball over a longer stretch and have their ace on the mound in DeGrom. The matchup screams pitchers duel, and I wouldnt be surprised to see a 2-1 or 3-2 type game here. However, Castillo is no slouch on the other side and with the way that Cincinnatis playing lately, I think the Reds are more than capable of taking this one. Instead, Im going to side with the under.
