Wednesday MLB Free Pick: Mets at Braves

Free pick from Ross Benjamin for the Braves/Mets Wednesday night matchup.

Tonight Atlanta heads to New York to take on the Mets.

Top handicapper Ross Benjamin has winning betting angles for the Atlanta Braves at New York Mets, scheduled for 7:15 PM ET on Wednesday, July 28th.

NY Mets free pickAtlanta sends left-hander Max Fried to the hill. After a rough start to the season, Fried has been Atlanta’s most consistent starter. He suffered a strained hamstring back in April and the Mets have gone 7-6 since his return. He's got a whopping 6.55 ERA on the road and averages just 5 innings per start away from home.
The Mets will start rookie Tylor Megill and they have performed well when he is on the mound, going 5-1. They haven't lost at home when he starts. He made his first major league start against the Atlanta Braves back in June and pitched 4⅓ innings, giving up three hits and two earned runs in a no-decision. 

The Mets bullpen has been very good over the last seven games (2.35 ERA) and the Mets are very good at home winning 31 of 48 games. The Mets lost 12-5 last night to these Braves and NY is very good in this situation, going 6-0 after a home loss in 2021.

The Mets are in a spot that looks very good for me. So, I'm going to go with the New York Mets tonight in the city that never sleeps. Watch the video for more insights for Braves at Mets tonight.

Bets of luck with all of your wagers.
