  • New York Mets (Jacob deGrom) -163
  • Miami Marlins (Sandy Alcantara) +147
  • Over/Under: 7

Bet to Watch

DeGrom is coming off his worst outing of the year. In his last assignment, the right-hander allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in six innings. That’s right, deGrom’s poorest performance was a quality start against a red-hot Dodgers team, and it moved his ERA 18 basis points from 1.51 to 1.69.

On Friday, deGrom takes on a Marlins team that was just dominated by a polished pitcher in Zack Greinke. DeGrom is like Greinke 5.0. Even though the Fish have been better than we all expected, I can’t see deGrom not dominating. His curveball should be nasty, especially in this heat.
