Why The Guardians Could Cover The Spread

The Guardians finally allowed their offense to finally explode. Now, they hope to continue their momentum. Amed Rosario went 2 for 5 with an RBI on Friday. Moreover, Naylor went 3 for 5 with five RBIs. Josh Bell went 1 for 5. Substantially, the Guardians left only five runners on base. The offense hit well and drove runners across the plate.

Cal Quantrill pitched efficiently, lasting 5 2/3 innings while allowing three earned runs on six hits and striking out six. However, the bullpen struggled as they blew a four-run lead in the seventh and then another lead in the 10th. Emmanuel Chase could not get the save as he blew the lead in the 10th.

The Guardians will cover the spread if the offense can continue to drive runners across the plate. Then, the pitching must pitch better.

Why The Mets Could Cover The Spread

The Mets showed amazing resilience in last night's game, rallying twice. Now, they hope to continue their scoring effort. Lindor went 3 for 6 with an RBI. Meanwhile, McNeil went 1 for 4 with an RBI. Pete Alonso went 1 for 4 with his grand slam. Likewise, Batty went 2 for 5 with an RBI and two runs. The offense remained explosive and hit the ball in the right places. Now, they hope to keep up the strong effort.

The pitching struggled. Ultimately, it was not a good day for the entire staff. Carlos Carrasco made his return and lasted five innings while allowing five earned runs on five hits and striking out three. Unfortunately, his control was good, but his stuff was not. The Guardians hit the ball well against him. Additionally, the bullpen allowed four earned runs and must improve.

The Mets will cover the spread if they can avoid falling into an early deficit. Then, they need to continue hitting the ball and making Bibee pay for his mistakes.

Final Guardians-Mets Prediction & Pick

The Guardians played well yesterday in a loss. Today, they face Scherzer. But Scherzer is not the pitcher he once was. Therefore, expect the Guardians to go out and clobber some pitches off him. The Guardians will cover the spread by scoring some runs and pitching better today.

Final Guardians-Mets Prediction & Pick: Cleveland Guardians: +1.5 (-146)
