This is a crucial series between two of the best teams in the National League. Both Atlanta and New York boast one of the best pitching-hitting combinations in the Majors, and the edge can be difficult to find in these types of close matchups. In this one, you have to trust Taijuan Walker over Ian Anderson. Although the Braves right-hander put forth a good bounce-back performance last week, he was shelled in a start against the Angels two weeks ago. He has been hit or miss for much of the year, and faces a dynamite Mets offense here. They hold the third highest on-base percentage and score the fifth most runs per game. They have won eight of their last nine games and look poised to increase their lead in a super competitive National League East. The Mets can win the World Series and need to defeat these top teams the next 6 weeks for confidence.
