A Quick Report on the Arizona Diamondbacks vs NY Mets MLB Betting Preview & TV InfoTime: Friday July 10, 5:10 p.m. ET Venue: Citi Field, Flushing, New York National TV: none Opening line: Arizona +130, New York -140 The New York Mets (44-42) have had a bit of an up and down season, but they have been able to keep pace with the division leading Washington Nationals because of that team’s inability to remain consistent throughout the first half. The Mets are 3 games back of the division leaders, and are likely to be happy with their position, but they also have to watch out for the Braves in third, as they have suddenly hit a pretty nice streak of form. The good news for the Mets is that this final series of the first half will come at home, where they have compiled a very impressive 29-14 record so far. Noah Syndergaard (3-4, 3.38 ERA) will get the start. Syndergaard has been great in his last two starts, giving up just 2 earned runs.The Arizona Diamondbacks (42-42) have some reason to celebrate this week, as they have finally made it back to .500 after failing to do so on 11 previous attempts. They have also managed to lift themselves ahead of the San Francisco Giants and into the second spot in the NL West. You can bet that this team is not about to rest on their laurels, but they are going to have to be at their best to knock off a Mets team that has been lights out at home this season. The D-Backs go this road trip off to a very nice start, though, taking both games off the Rangers in rather convincing fashion. Those two wins mean that Arizona has won 5 of their last 6 games, and may well be a team to watch in the second half. Chase Anderson (4-2, 3.71 ERA) will get the start on Friday. Arizona has won 5 of the last 6 games in which Anderson was the starter.
