The Mets have taken two in a row from the Giants, but getting the sweep here is going to be a very tall task. They face the reigning two-time Cy Young award winner in Tim Lincecum, who has picked up this season where he left off. Lincecum has gone 4-0 and posted a 1.70 ERA thus far in 2010. Sure, he has struggled against the Mets, but that's more of a fluke than anything else, and can't be counted on when making a bet here. When coming off a loss the past two seasons, the Giants are 52-34. That includes a 28-17 mark when coming off a close loss by 2 or fewer runs. I'm backing Lincecum here.
