Atlanta vs New York Prediction: Bettors Beware
Bettors that are thinking about backing the New York Mets have to be worried. This is a team that appears poised to tap out. They offloaded major talent at the trade deadline — but the Mets were never really into this season at any point. Through the first three games of the series against Atlanta, the Braves have outscored the Mets 34-3. Let’s have a look at just how bad the Mets have been for practically the last month.
As of July 14th, 2023, the New York Mets had a rather mediocre record of 42 wins and 48 losses. Fast forward to the present, and things have taken a turn for the worse. With a current overall record of 52 wins and 65 losses, it’s safe to say that the team is struggling. In the past month, the Mets have managed to secure only 10 wins out of 27 games played. This works out to a disheartening winning rate of just .370 over that time span.
Sunday Night Baseball (August 13th Final Thoughts)
The Atlanta vs New York game on August 13th gets tricky because you have to think that pride will factor in for the Mets. New York has played so badly that they have almost certainly received a good chewing out from their coaches. Furthermore, New York has the better-starting pitcher on Sunday evening. The Mets might just make amends in what will be a nationally-televised game.
Expect some bats in this one. The Braves have been hot and the Mets should be focused. Our recommendation is to take -118 for OVER 9.5 total runs with Unibet. The start time on Sunday evening is 7:10 PM ET.
