Why the Mets can pay on the MLB linesOne word: deGrom. The 30-year-old righty has the lowest ERA in baseball, and he is coming off an outstanding performance against the Cincinnati Reds last time out on Wednesday. The 30-year-old pitched six scoreless innings in an 8-0 victory, walking one batter and striking out 10 to end a personal three-game losing streak.During that skid Kendall Graveman Jersey , he also gave up three runs or less in each of the three starts with three walks and 24 strikeouts. The problem is, the Mets totaled just three runs combined in those games.Why the Yankees can pay on the MLB linesOffensively, the Yankees are obviously the superior team, and that helped Severino break a three-game losing streak of his own in his last outing. David Banks/Associated PressThe 24-year-old Dominican gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings of a 7-3 win on Wednesday after seeing his team get outscored 21-12 in his previous three starts combined.Before his skid, the Yankees had won six straight times with him toeing the rubber along with 16 of 17. Severino was 12-1 in those 17 games, with the Yankees winning 12 of them by two runs or more to cover the runline at a 71 percent clip. Smart betting pickThe Mets have won two of the past three meetings with the Yankees after a six-game series losing streak, according to the OddsShark MLB Database. In other words Jose Canseco Jersey , they have a chance here, especially with deGrom on the mound.Severino has seen his ERA rise more than a run from 1.98 on July 1, which is concerning for the Yankees down the stretch. Take the underdog value on the Mets with deGrom in this spot. MLB betting trendsThe Mets are 4-2 in their last six games.The total has gone over in six of the Yankees' last eight games at home against the Mets.The Mets are 2-7 in their last nine games against the Yankees.
