Tylor Megill has been thrown into the rotation this season due to early injuries and he has exceeded expectaitons through his first two starts. He sports a 2-0 record with a 1.64 ERA and now he gets to face Blake Snell of the Padres, who has had a near complete opposite start to the 2023 campaign.
Snell enters the game with a 7.88 ERA, which is something the Mets should be able to take advantage of.
Let's dive into the odds for Wednesday's matchup and then I'll give you my best bet for the game.
Padres vs. Mets odds, run line, and total
Padres vs. Mets prediction and pick
Blake Snelll has allowed at least three earned runs in each of his first two starts, which was preceded by a Spring Training in where he sported a 5.63 ERA.
It may be time for the red flags to be raised in terms of his performance and us as bettors should take full advantage until the odds adjust for his poor play.
The Mets offense has been admittedly cold to start the season, but now is a great time for it to turn things around. The lineup is too talented to keep up this low level of play, and they should be excited at the opportunity to face a slumping Snell.
Let's also consider that the Padres offense, which was given a lot of hype in the offseason, has also got off to a slow start. Through the first 12 days of the season, they rank in the bottom half of the Majors in OPS.
Let's trust Tylor Megill, fade Blake Snell, and bet on the Mets to get the win on Wednesday.
