Hot teams like the Mets find ways to win. Last night the Mets plated four runs in the ninth to grab their 10th straight win, so getting a team on fire at virtually even odds always shows value. After a few shaky starts, John Maine has become the pitcher he was last season, and the Mets have found the win column in four of his last five, also winning three of his last four road starts. Bronson Arroyo has had a forgettable season. He brings a nearly six ERA into this game and the Mets are a red-hot on offense right now. The Mets are averaging 6.2 runs a game over their last 10, and the pitching has been superb, recording four shutouts. You have to ride the Mets at these odds.
