MLB Picks: New York Mets vs. New York Yankees
The New York Yankees have never been swept in a season series by the New York Mets, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks on Thursday as the two teams close out the Subway Series at Yankee Stadium.
Sports bettors will find that the Yankees are minus-160 home favorites in the pro baseball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at nine in the betting market.
Let's take a closer look at this interleague matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.
New York Mets
Following a 9-4 victory over the New York Yankees as plus-166 road underdogs on Wednesday, the New York Mets have now won a season-high four consecutive games
Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee is 1-3 with a 9.97 ERA in five road starts in 2013.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are suffering through a season-high four-game losing streak, with the offense scoring just nine combined runs over that span.
Yankees rookie left-hander Vidal Nuno is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA in four games (two starts) during the 2013 campaign.
I'm going to recommend that readers back the Yankees on the run line as one of their MLB picks on Thursday, as they've gone 80-37 in their last 117 interleague home games.
MLB Pick: New York Yankees -1.5 (+115)
