N.Y. Mets -1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: We hit yesterday with picking against the A's on the run line, so we'll stick with what works. This time around, it's the Mets -1.5 (-125). The Mets have won six of seven since inexplicably being swept at home by the Cubs. They had Thursday off for travel and send Chris Bassitt to the mound in Oakland. He's taken that mound 46 times, easily the most of any ballpark in his MLB career. He has a 2.44 ERA in that ballpark in his career and it was even better in 2020-21 (1.84 in 107 1/3 innings). The A's only hit .206/.276/.320 at home, too. Between Bassitt and a rested bullpen (the big guns haven't pitched since Tuesday), the Mets offense needn't explode; just have a respectable day. They will.
