3 units on Atlanta -150 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
I'm not sure if there is a place to fade the Mets that would lead to better results. Coming to Atlanta has been an absolute chamber of horrors for this Mets team, as Murphy's Law has prevailed - if something can go wrong, it does. The Mets have won just 22 times here in their last 71 games, and recent meetings holding are form as they are 3-8 in the last 11. Derek Lowe adds to the confidence level here as he is 10-2 in his last 12 starts as a home chalk. The Mets are just 16-42 in their last 58 on the road overall, and have dropped their last six vs. right-hand pitching. Not a spot to get healthy for the Mets, so I'll run with the Braves in this one.
