Here is our pick for today's big game between the Braves and Mets.

National League Best Bet

New York Mets -110 at Atlanta Braves +100

7:20 p.m. ET

The Braves defeated the Mets Friday to give us another winning MLB best bet, and we will turn to them again today at Truist Stadium. The betting markets have this game even, but I see significant value in backing the Braves.

With the win, the Braves are Mets are tied on top of the NL East standings with five games remaining to the regular season schedule of 162 games. The winner of the division gets a first-round bye and a chance to rest their starters.

We have a terrific pitching matchup tonight. Max Scherzer is starting for the Mets and the Braves counter with Kyle Wright. Mad Max is 13-9 in 29 career starts against the Braves with an ERA of 3.78 and a WHIP of 1.131. In six career starts against the Mets, Wright has an ERA of 6.35 and a whip of 1.730.

The Braves have a significant advantage with their bullpen. The Mets’ bullpen has floundered recently, posting a 6.00 ERA and a 1.458 WHIP over their last seven games spanning 24 innings. Atlanta's bullpen has a 1.09 ERA and a .77 WHIP over their previous seven games.
