The battle to represent the National League in the World series this year looks as though it is going to be a good one. The teams who are expected to be part of that battle are all off to a very good start, and that includes the team that went all the way to the World Series last year, the New York Mets. There were a lot of MLB betting lines fans who were surprised at the success of the Mets last season, mainly because they found a way to win despite having some obvious holes in the line-up.

Why bet on the San Francisco Giants
The Giants (12-11) are coming into this series on a real high after sweeping the Padres in a 3-game series. It was a positive end to a long home stand that saw the Giants get back over .500 and within a half game of the Dodgers at the top of the NL West. San Francisco ae beginning to flash some power, and have now scored 118 runs on the season, which is good enough for 4th overall. They are still waiting for their pitching staff to deliver the goods, as their team ERA is down near the lower end of the scale. The Giants have their eyes on the postseason, and this series will prove to be a good test of where they stand among the better teams in the conference. Jake Peavey (1-1, 6.86 ERA) will take to the mound or the Giants.
Why bet on the New York Mets
The Mets (13-7) had a bit of an odd season last year, as they benefitted from a Washington Nationals side that seriously underperformed. The Mets would go on extended winning streaks followed by serious lulls that kept the Nats in the picture longer than it should have. They wanted to get more consistent this season, and are doing a good job of that so far. The Mets are on an impressive 6-game win streak at the moment, having just swept the Braves and the Reds. They are rounding into form very nicely, and once again look as though they are going to be among the best in the National League. Steven Matz (2-1, 5.40 ERA) will start for the Mets.
My Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Mets have been better on the road than they have been at home this season, and they will be looking to improve their play at Citi Field. I think they will start things off the right way with a tight win on Friday.
