49-43, 2nd in NL East

Oddsmakers have the Mets listed as heavy underdogs tonight with their ace Noah Syndergaard on the mound.  Syndergaard is (9-4, 2.56 ERA) and is a force on the mound and with a bat in his hands.

“Thor” leads the 2016 New York staff in innings (105 2/3), wins (nine) and strikeouts (128).  Syndergaard last faced the Cubs on July 3rd and pitched 7 strong innings as the Mets thrashed the Cubs, 14-3.

Up until last night, the Mets had won 8 straight vs the Cubs dating back to last season.  In 2015, the Mets swept the Cubs en route to a World Series berth.

They hope “Thor” can once again lead this team to victory on the road.  Syndergaard is 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA in two starts against Chicago.

56-36, 1st in NL Central

Jon Lester got his groove back in the Cubs’ 5-1 victory over the Mets last night and Jake Arrietta hopes to do the same tonight.

Arrietta is 1-3 in his past four starts with a 6.75 ERA, but steering clear of any activity during the week of the Midsummer Classic probably did wonders for the righty’s physical and mental state.  Arrietta is a work horse and has amassed more than 340 innings in the past 15 months.

Arrieta has not recorded a quality start in his last four outings and has lasted six innings in just one of those starts. The 30-year-old’s last outing before the All-Star break was a rough one, as he allowed six runs over six innings in a loss at Pittsburgh. Arrieta is 2-2 with a 2.48 ERA in six starts against the Mets.

Mets vs Cubs Free MLB Prediction by Dennis Mathews

What is Dennis Mathews predicting?

“Mets vs Cubs projects to be a low-scoring game tonight based on my pitching numbers but both pitchers are a little banged up at the moment.  Despite the fact that the action is coming in at 2-1 on the Cubs on the ML, the line has gone down from Cubs -150 to -140 (depending on your book), which would mean that the sharp action in Vegas is on the Mets”.

Mets are 7-0 in Syndergaard’s last 7 starts vs. National League Central
Cubs are 1-6 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter
Mets are 8-1 in the last 9 meetings

“My money is on the Mets tonight with a chip bet on the Under.  Arrietta hasn’t been as dominate as he was last year and it just seems like the Mets have the Cubs number.  I see more value with the Mets +125 than siding with the Cubs”.
