|-1.5 NYM (-137) @ Betamerica|
ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Run Line: *Game 1 of DH* New York Mets -1.5 runs (-137) over Colorado Rockies, Saturday at 5:05 PM ET - This is game one of the double header at Colorado today and the fact is a 7-inning game strengthens this situation for the Mets. That is because Jacob deGrom could very easily end up pitching the whole way and that eliminates the Mets bullpen from the equation. The only problem for deGrom this season has been lack of run support but that changes in this one as the Mets take advantage of facing Chi Chi Gonzalez at Coors Field. This season in two appearances at Coors Field Gonzalez has a 1.60 WHIP and a 5.40 ERA. He came to Colorado before the 2019 season. Entering this season, including the last 2 with the Rockies, here is what Gonzalez has done at the MLB level: 2-10 record with a 6.00 ERA! The Mets enter this game off 3 straight wins. Colorado enters this game having lost 6 straight and they have the worst record in baseball thus far with a 3-10 mark on the season. 7 of the Rockies last 8 losses have been by a margin of 2 or more runs. New York's last two wins have been 3 or more runs each and their road win earlier this season at Philly was by a margin of 4 runs. You can see why laying the 1.5 runs here should not be an issue and if Gonzalez gets into trouble early (likely), he is supported by a Colorado bullpen that has the worst numbers in National League with a 5.84 ERA and 1.72 WHIP. Finally deGrom gets big run support and his domination on the mound continues and he finally gets that elusive first win of the season. He has a 0.64 ERA this season and allowed just 1 earned run in 8 innings the last time he pitched at Coors Field and deGrom is 4-1 with a 1.25 ERA in his career against Colorado. As you can see above, all the key edges are with the road team in this one and we are grabbing them on the run line. Blowout alert! Bet the New York Mets -1.5 runs in Game One of the Double Header Saturday.
