Power Sports' *10* INTERLEAGUE TOTAL OF THE MONTH ~ 115-89-2 L206 MLB!
NY Yankees vs. NY Mets,
07/02/2019 19:10 EDT,
Score: 2 - 4
Total: -114/+9 Under
10* Under Yankees/Mets (7:10 ET): The Yankees are back in the States after a weekend visit to London that saw them put up 29 runs in a pair of victories over the Red Sox. The AL East leaders have now won five in a row overall. While back in NY, it's not the Bronx, but rather Queens for the next two days as they face the Mets in Interleague play. The Mets would gladly take "jet lag" over their recent issues. They've lost seven of eight (did win Sunday night) and appear to be fading fast, even in a weak NL East. I like this game to stay Under the total.
Needless to say, Olympic Stadium over in London made even Coors Field seem like a "pitcher's park" by comparison. The first game between the Yankees & Red Sox saw 30 total runs scored (17-13 Yanks' win) as each team batted around twice! It was 6-6 at the end of the first inning. After the two games were over, 50 total runs had been scored on 65 hits. It was ridiculous. But now the Yanks come back to play under NL rules, which means the pitcher has to come up to bat and thus we should see a significant decrease in their offensive numbers here tonight.
Starting tonight for the Yanks will be James Paxton, who has been going through a bit of a rough patch lately, but is still a very effective pitcher. He'd allowed just 3 ER in 11 IP over two starts before getting touched up for six runs by Toronto last week. I expect a bounce back here. The Mets' Zach Wheeler has a 2.84 ERA his L3 starts and has allowed just two runs on seven hits in the last two. Note the Under is 11-4 in the Yankees' last 15 interleague road games. 10* Under Yankees/Mets
