Fargo's MLB Thursday Supreme Annihilator (70-55 MLB Run)
2018-08-02 19:10:00

This is a play on the ATLANTA BRAVES for our MLB Thursday Supreme Annihilator. The Mets are clearly a mess right now as they lost both games in Washington highlighted by that 25-4 debacle on Tuesday. They own the second worst record in the National League and let us not forget this has come after an 11-1 start to the season. While a return home may seem like a good thing, the Mets are 9-22 in their last 31 home games including 4-11 in their last 15 home games against teams with a winning record. The Braves have won three straight games after dropping their first three games of their homestand and currently sit a half game behind the Phillies in the National League East. This is a big series as the next six games are against Washington and Milwaukee. Mike Foltynewicz was among the league leaders in ERA, but his last four starts have bumped his ERA up to 3.04 through 20 starts. He has been hurt by the long ball, but the Mets are one of the worst power hitting teams in the league, so we should see him get back on track here. Jason Vargas counters for New York and he has been awful with an 8.36 ERA in 10 starts, none of which have been quality outings. Here, we play against home underdogs with a money line of +125 or more with a starting pitcher whose lasts less than five innings per start and with an ERA of 7.50 or worse over his last three starts. This situation is 52-11 (82.5 percent) over the last five seasons. 9* (957) Atlanta Braves
