#959 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* New York Mets -122 over Chicago Cubs, Wednesday at 7:40 PM ET - The Cubs won yesterday's game but this followed a stretch of 8 losses in 11 games.  Chicago only had 4 hits in yesterday's game and continues to struggle badly at the plate.  The Cubs have not won back to back games since very early this season.  The Mets have not lost back to back games yet this season as New York is a perfect 4-0 when off a loss this year.  In terms of the pitching match-up here, the Mets hold a big edge.  New York's David Peterson had a rough first start but bounced back big in his next start and he had a solid spring too.  Consider the first start this season a bit of an aberration for Peterson and it was a day game start.  His next start was at night and he dominated.  How can that matter?  Some guys are much better under the lights than in day games and Peterson has shown this pattern already in his young career.  He is a perfect 5-0 with a 2.67 ERA in his 6 starts in evening action!  The Cubs are hitting a putrid .189 at the plate so far this season which is the worst batting average in the majors.  They have never faced Peterson which is another big edge for the southpaw here.  The Mets have also struggled at the plate early this season but are hitting a more respectable .241 thus far.  Though New York has wasted opportunities and not scored all that well they have had their chances.  The key here is they should have great success in both creating and cashing in those opportunities.  The Cubs Zach Davies does not look right at all.  He is struggling badly on the mound for Chicago thus far and has a 10.32 ERA and a 2.21 WHIP.  That latter stat means that he is allowing an average of 2 base runners per inning and this is a guy who has made 3 starts already and 2 of them were against a Pirates team projected to be one of the worst in the majors this season.  The Mets are projected to challenge the Braves for top spot in the NL East.  The Mets bats come to life against Davies and we expect Peterson to throw a gem here.  We will grab the road team at a very fair price on the money line in this one and bet the METS


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
