MLB | N.Y. Mets 9 @ Atlanta 7 | 08/17 | 11:20 PM UTC

N.Y. Mets -1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Braves have trimmed the Mets' NL East lead to 3 1/2 games again, but every time this season the Mets have been pushed hard like this, they have stepped up. I'm expecting the same here. The offense will come out strong against Jake Odorizzi, who they beat a few weeks ago. On the other side is Max Scherzer, who thrives in this type of atmosphere. Also, Edwin Diaz hasn't pitched since Aug. 13, so he'll be ready to go two innings. We're gonna grab the run line here (-1.5, +118), as I like the Mets for a crooked number against Odorizzi and expect seven innings of Scherzer before two of Diaz.
