Picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Mets -160
We’re in for a nice pitching duel this afternoon between Bumgarner and Megill. We’ll lean on the younger righty to build on his two excellent starts prior to this one and carry the Mets to a road victory here.
Player prop pick: Tylor Megill Over 5.5 strikeouts (+120)
Arizona’s hitting struggles have been well documented through the first two weeks of the regular season and their batters have already stuck out 142 times this year. This is prime territory for Megill to go on a run of K’s and get at least six in this one.
