New York Mets

Pete Alonso, the powerhouse slugger for the Mets, holds the key to several key player prop bets. With prop odds like Hits Over 1.5 (+109), Home Runs Over 0.5 (+110), and RBI Under 0.5 (-136), Alonso’s performance will be closely watched by fans and bettors alike. Will he exceed expectations and secure more hits and home runs than projected? Or will the Cardinals’ pitching strategy prove successful in containing his explosive abilities?

Similarly, the Mets’ dynamic duo of Francisco Lindor and Brandon Nimmo also bring their own prop odds into the mix. Lindor’s Hits Over 1.5 (+109) and Nimmo’s Hits Over 1.5 (-118) create an interesting narrative of hitting prowess against a Cardinals pitching lineup that’s aiming to put the brakes on their offensive ambitions.

Mets Recent Performance

The Mets have had a mixed bag of results in recent games. The total has gone OVER in 4 of their last 6 games, indicating an inclination toward high-scoring matchups. However, they are 5-11 in their last 16 games, showing inconsistencies in performance. A concerning trend is their 0-7 SU record in their last 7 away games, highlighting a challenge they face on the road.

The Mets, led by Francisco Lindor and Brandon Nimmo, boast an arsenal of dynamic talent. Lindor’s ability to contribute across the board with a.244 AVG, 22 home runs, and 20 stolen bases adds an unpredictability that keeps opponents guessing while Nimmo’s combination of a.264 AVG, 17 homers, and 60 walks showcases his knack for getting on base quickly and creating rallies.

The New York Mets have been an unpredictable team this season, showing moments of brilliance interspersed with inconsistency. Their recent trend of going 5-11 over their last 16 games may indicate difficulty maintaining momentum; however, one silver lining lies in their offensive firepower which has seen 4 out of their last 6 totals go OVER — an indication that while wins may have come at different times during that stretch, their ability to score runs remains intact.

Players to watch: Francisco Lindor SS (GP 119, AB 446, R 74, H 109, 2B 26, 3B 2, HR 22, RBI 72, TB 205, BB 51, SO 107, SB 20, AVG 0.244, OBP 0.331, SLG 0.46, OPS 0.79, WAR 4.6, Brandon Nimmo CF (GP 115, AB 440, R 66, H 116, 2B 19, 3B 4, HR 17, RBI 50, TB 194, BB 60, SO 111, SB 3, AVG 0.264, OBP 0.362, SLG 0.441, OPS 0.803, WAR 3.1

St. Louis Cardinals

On the other side of the diamond, the Cardinals have been more resilient, going 5-2 in their last 7 games. The total has gone UNDER in 12 of their last 17 games, which could imply a pitching-oriented approach. Their 5-0 SU record against NL East Division opponents demonstrates their ability to dominate within their division.

Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado have become two names that command respect in baseball circles, thanks to their consistent hitting at an average of 0.278 along with 19 home runs for Goldschmidt; Nolan Arenado adds power and precision to their Cardinals offense with his.287 average and 25 homers.

St. Louis Cardinals have found themselves on an upward path recently, winning five out of their last seven games to improve to 5-2 overall. A signature trait of theirs has been to keep games tight and low-scoring; 12 out of 17 totals went UNDER which signals strong pitching strategies aimed at stopping opposing teams’ offensive onslaughts. At home, the Cardinals have performed admirably, going 4-1 in their last 5 home games. A noteworthy trend is their success against NL East Division opponents, boasting an impeccable 5-0 SU record. This could signal a level of comfort and familiarity when facing teams from their own division.

Players to watch: Paul Goldschmidt 1B (GP 117, AB 460, R 68, H 128, 2B 25, 3B 0, HR 19, RBI 62, TB 210, BB 64, SO 114, SB 10, AVG 0.278, OBP 0.367, SLG 0.457, OPS 0.824, WAR 2.8, Nolan Arenado 3B (GP 115, AB 450, R 57, H 129, 2B 22, 3B 2, HR 25, RBI 84, TB 230, BB 32, SO 86, SB 2, AVG 0.287, OBP 0.333, SLG 0.511, OPS 0.844, WAR 2.8
