The Mets are 3/4 of their way through their sweep of the Marlins in the Big Apple and will lean on their stud Jacob deGrom to put the final bullet in their divisional opponents. New York is 8-2 in its last 10 games and is making a playoff push similar to the one they made last season.
- The Marlins are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games with Jose Urena as the starting pitcher.
- The Marlins are 0-7 in runline bets in their last 7 games.
- The Mets are 6-1 on the runline in their last 7 games.
Jose Urena has not been good in his sophomore year. So far this season the Dominican is 2-5 with a 5.83 ERA and has spent time in and out of the bullpen. Since being inserted into the rotation six games ago, Urena has allowed an average of three runs per start and his team has won just two of those games.
deGrom got bullied in his last two starts for 13 combined runs. The positive here is that both those games were on the road, where deGrom has struggled this season. His 4.16 road ERA is 2.27 points higher than his average at Citi Field where the Mets’ ace has gone 5-2 in 12 starts.
Since Yoenis Cespedes re-entered the lineup, the Mets have averaged 4.75 runs per game, almost a full run more than they have averaged all year.
