The first-place Mets take on the fourth-place Blue Jays on Friday night in Queens. Both teams have gone .500 over their last 10 games and are looking for a confidence-building win.
New York's probable starter is 6-foot-7 Tylor Megill, who has a 2.63 ERA on the season. Megill has been a great strikeout pitcher, racking up 28 Ks and only nine walks on the season.
Toronto will be trotting former Mets pitcher Steven Matz out on the mound. Matz last pitched on July 18, pitching five shutout innings in a 10-0 Blue Jays win.
The Mets are just outside of the bottom-10 in OPS, and despite having some power in their lineup, they may struggle with Matz's stuff on a windy day. Likewise, a Toronto offense that is No. 1 in the league in slugging percentage isn't guaranteed to tee off on the Mets, especially coming off of back-to-back losses to the Red Sox.
Let's take a look at why bettors are keeping an eye on the total in our latest PRO Report.
