Atlanta vs. NY Mets, 04/05/2012 13:10
Money Line: -101 NY Mets
MLB FREE PICK: New York Mets -101
The Mets are showing some solid value at pretty much even odds at home. New York will send out Johan Santana, who will be making his first start since the 2010 season. Santana has been effective in spring training. He know longer has a fastball in the mid-90's, but he still knows how to get batters out with that nasty change-up.
The Braves will counter with Tommy Hanson, who is one of the promising young starters in the NL. However, Hanson has not been all that effective against the Mets. He is 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA in 7 starts.
While I don't think the Mets will be able to contend for a division title, I look for them to play extremely hard early in the season. No one is giving this team a chance. With Santana on the mound, I think this is definitely a play worth throwing a little on the side. BET THE METS!
