Two of the bottom three offenses in the league will collide tonight as the Braves stop in at Citi Field to open up a three-game-series with the Mets. Matt Harvey (4-8, 4.66 ERA) will take the bump in the series opener vs the Braves, who will counter with rookie John Gant (0-1, 5.63 ERA).
- The Braves are 0-13 in their last 13 games as an underdog of +210 or more.
- The Mets are 14-6 in their last 20 games as home favorites.
- The Braves are 5-1 OU in their last 6 games.
Matt Harvey has put together three straight quality starts after a horrendous start to the 2016 season and seems to have figured things out. In his last three outings, Harvey has allowed only two total earned runs in 20 innings pitched and figures to give his Mets a good chance to win tonight, assuming he gets some run support.
There’s not much Major League data on Braves rook John Gant, as he has appeared in only eight games and made only one start for the tomahawk chops. Before being called up, Gant was 3-0 with a 3.14 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Gwinnett.
The Braves, who are +210 on Bodog, will lean on Freddie Freeman for offense – Freddie is hitting .379 with three homeruns in the last seven days and will have the lefty/righty advantage against the right-handed Matt Harvey.
