New York at Atlanta

3 units on Atlanta -180 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The New York Mets are 18-30 over their last 48 games and reeling. This is a troubled franchise that lacks leadership on and off the field. It is a team that has underachieved for the last several years. They now play into an environment not conducive for changing the status quo. Atlanta has the best home record in baseball at 48-18. They also stand tall vs righthand pitching where they score just shy of five runs a game and are 53-33. The Mets have never played well in Atlanta where they have amassed a pathetic 24-54 mark in their last 78 games. The Mets, at 13-39 to a moneyline of +151 to +200 in their last 52, present no challenge here. Atlanta gets the call.
