New York Mets at New York Yankees Prediction

The Subway series between the Mets and Yankees kicks off with a pitching matchup between Max Scherzer and Domingo German. The Mets come into the game as the betting favorite. Even though the Yankees picked up a win yesterday over Toronto, they are still a shell of their former selves at the plate. Look for this to continue against Max Scherzer. I like the Mets on the moneyline.
