MLB Game Preview and Odds:

Free MLB Picks and Predictions on this game between the New York Mets vs San Francisco Giants for this Monday, August 16, 2021 at 9:45pm et at Oracle Park in San Fran.

The current DraftKings MLB odds have the Giants as -200 money line favorites and the over/under at 8.5 total runs. The betting public currently has 93% of their money behind San Francisco as the home favorite.

New York Mets:

The New York Mets are coming off being destroyed at home 14-4 on Sunday Night against the Dodgers and they’ll look for a bounce back performance with their lefty Rich Hill taking the mound. Hill was acquired from the Rays just 3 weeks ago and in his last 4 appearances with the Mets, he’s struggled with a 5.00 ERA. Hill seems to step up his performance a little more when he’s on the road, so we’ll see if that continues tonight. He hasn’t faced the Giants since 2019, but in his career against them, he’s 8-2 overall with an ERA of 2.23. This is the prime opportunity for the red hot Braves to gain some separation in the NL East if the Mets continue playing like they have been lately.

San Francisco Giants:

The Giants come into this game after getting the 5-3 Sunday Night win against the Rockies and still with the best record in major league baseball.

They’ll have Kevin Gausman set to start in this matchup. Gausman is 11-5 overall this season with an impressive 2.29 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 162 strikeouts over 137 innings. The Mets are tenth in the majors as a team when it comes to strike outs, so in this game the over on the total for Gausman’s strikeouts might be a prop bet you sprinkle a little bit on if the number is right. I actually have a better player prop for everyone to be on in this game that I’m actually throwing money on myself and I’ll go ahead and give it to everyone for free who takes a second to text the word “prop” to 702-234-0597. These props have been making everyone some extra profits all season long, so why stop now.

Guausman is 0-3 when starting against the Mets with an ERA of 5.40, but he hasn’t faced them since 2019, so I wouldn’t put too much thought behind that stat.
