Pick on the Moneyline of Mets-Padres for Monday

VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Monday’s matchup between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Padres return home after going to Milwaukee and getting a series win over the National League Central-leading Brewers. They will face another division leader with the New York Mets in town on Monday.

New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres (-110, 7.5)

Blake Snell will get the start for the Padres. He has some of the biggest home and road splits in the league since being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays prior to the start of the 2021 season.

In Snell’s 13 career starts at Petco Park, he has a 2.69 ERA and opponents have hit .158 off of him. Snell has also averaged 13 strikeouts per nine innings in home starts for the Padres, compared to his 5.91 road ERA with 6.2 walks per nine innings away from home.

The Mets send Carlos Carrasco to the mound Monday. He also has some large home and road splits, posting a 2.79 ERA with a .233 opponent batting average at home, while opponents are hitting .287 off of him on the road, where he’s posted a 5.06 ERA.

Both teams are dealing with bullpens that had to endure an extra-inning game on Sunday, but the Padres have gotten more length recently from starters, with them going at least six innings in 10 of their last 11 games.

This potential playoff preview featuring a matchup, where home field advantage is of major importance, will go the way of San Diego to extend their three-game winning streak.

The Play: Padres -110
