Long time no see.

I was on vacation most of last week with the family. We went camping without internet and I mostly just tried to disconnect from the outside world for a few days. It felt good and I am feeling refreshed. I have to go out of town again this weekend, but after that I should be on a more regular schedule that will include going every day of the playoffs.

Until then, let’s get to today’s tips.

Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets Betting Tips:

  Team Name FIP-
AWAY Cubs Kyle Hendricks 84
HOME Mets Noah Syndergaard 77

The Cubs got the win last night to break their losing streak and continue that of the Mets. Tonight, I see things going a bit differently.

Kyle Hendricks goes for the Cubs and while he’s been very good this season, his road numbers are not the best. He has a 4.76 ERA/4.53 FIP on the road this year with a 1.46 HR/9 rate. The Mets have been hitting well and I like them to do so here.

The Mets will send Noah Syndergaard and while his strikeout numbers aren’t what they once were, he does have some good numbers on the year with a 3.71 ERA/3.36 FIP. Before yesterday, the Cubs offense had been very cold over the past two weeks and I think he can take advantage of them here.
