The New York Mets are showing solid value Monday as an underdog to the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates. Getting ace Johan Santana at this kind of price is an absolute gift from oddsmakers. The Mets have been underrated all season.
Now healthy, Santana has returned to his old dominant self. He has posted a 2.89 ERA and 1.168 WHIP in eight starts this season with 46 strikeouts in 43 2/3 innings. Santana is 2-2 with a 2.02 ERA and 0.729 WHIP in three career starts against Pittsburgh.
The Pirates are only hitting .210 and scoring 2.5 runs/game at home this season, while the Mets are hitting .279 and scoring 5.1 runs/game on the road. I obviously believe New York has the edge at the plate and on the mound in this one.
Santana is 73-17 against the money line vs. teams outscored by opp by 0.5 or more runs/game on the season since 1997. New York is 11-5 in their last 16 meetings with Pittsburgh. Bet the Mets Monday.
