Mariners vs Mets Prediction

The Mets are coming into this game as a slight favorite with the current betting odds. The Mets have had a great start to their season and they have one of the best records in the MLB as they are a much improved team from last season. They are hitting the ball much better and their pitching has been great this season. They already lost the first game of this series and they have not lost a series yet this season so they will be eager to get the win in this game and prevent that from happening. They have Carrasco starting and he has been a solid starter for them this season while Ray is on the mound for the Mariners and he has had his struggles this season as he has been allowing a lot of runs in their games. The Mets only lost 2-1 in the series opener and they will likely bounce back to win the next 2 games. The best bet here is on the Mets to win this game at home.
