For the Mets, they are now 52-65 on the season and 28-27 on the road. The Braves won both games of the Saturday doubleheader, including scoring 21 runs in the first game.

Atlanta is Getting Good at Bats

In the win in the first game on Saturday, Ozzie Albies drove in six runs, and Matt Olson went deep twice in the game. Olson now leads the team and all of Major League Baseball with 42 on the season. The Braves scored 21 runs, with 16 of those runs coming in the final four innings of the game.

The combination of Acuna and Olson leads Atlanta. Ronald Acuna Jr. is second in all of the National League with his .339 batting average. Olson now has 105 runs batted in for Atlanta as well. The Braves, who lead all of Major League Baseball in home runs, also have the best team batting average, with a .273.

The Atlanta Braves are sending 29-year-old Yonny Chirinos to the mound in this game. The right-hander is making his 8th start of the season. Atlanta has won all three of his starts so far this season. His last outing was on the road at Pittsburgh, where he allowed four home runs but got eight runs of offensive support.

Mets Struggles Continue

The Mets just continue to struggle in 2023. The Mets coming into the second game of the doubleheader, had lost nine out of their last 11 games. The pitching has let them down, but when they pitch well, their offense struggles. It’s a big-time struggle for the team from Queens.

Pete Alonso is chasing 40 home runs and 100 runs batted in, but that’s one of the only bright spots you will find with the Mets. Alonso has 35 home runs and has drove in 87 runs. The Mets’ offense has dropped down to 24th in all of baseball with their .237 batting average on the season.

The New York Mets will send Kodai Senga to the mound. Senga is a 30-year-old right-hander from Japan. He is 8-6 on the season, with a 3.24 earned run average.

Senga has struck out 142 batters on the season in 116.2 innings. His last start was on August 7th at home against the Cubs, where he allowed just two hits over six innings.

Braves Keep Winning

The Braves just have too much offense to bet against them in this game. Atlanta can hit like crazy, and the Mets’ pitching staff is in shambles. Even if Senga throws well for the Mets, they will have to go to their bullpen at some point.

Look for Atlanta to pound the baseball all over the diamond again in this game. Betting the Atlanta Braves -130, and also betting the OVER 9.5 is the way to bet in this game.
