Jul 16, 2019; Oakland, CA, USA; Oakland Athletics third baseman Matt Chapman (26) hits a RBI double against the Seattle Mariners during the seventh inning at the Oakland Coliseum.

First pitch from Truist Park in Atlanta is set for 1:10 p.m. ET. The Braves have won four of the five meetings with the Mets this season. Atlanta is the -115 favorite on the money line in the latest Mets vs. Braves odds from William Hill, while the over-under for total runs scored is 11. Before making any Mets vs. Braves picks, check out the latest MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model. 

The model, which simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, is coming off a banner 2019 season. The model returned more than $1,400 on its top-rated money-line and run-line MLB picks, and anyone who followed it saw huge rewards. 

Now, the model has dialed in on Mets vs. Braves. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the MLB odds from William Hill and trends for Braves vs. Mets:

  • Mets vs. Braves money line: New York +105, Atlanta -115
  • Mets vs. Braves run line: Atlanta -1.5
  • Mets vs. Braves over-under: 11 runs
  • NY: New York is second in the MLB with a .266 team batting average.
  • ATL: Reliever Mark Melancon has started the season with two saves in as many attempts.
Why you should back the Braves

Atlanta jumped out to a big early lead on Saturday and beat the Mets for the fourth straight time after losing the season opener to them. Shortstop Dansby Swanson (.382) has hit in each of the Braves' first eight games, including going 8-for-19 (.421) against Mets' pitching. In 57 career games against New York, Swanson is a .278 hitter with 14 doubles, one homer and 20 RBIs. He also has eight stolen bases in nine attempts.

Right-hander Kyle Wright (0-1, 16.88 ERA) will take the mound for the Braves on Sunday. He breezed through the first two innings of his season debut against Tampa Bay on Tuesday before losing his control, allowing five earned runs and four hits in 2 2/3 innings. He walked three and struck out three. He has five career starts with the Braves and a 0-4 record in 28 1/3 innings and an 8.58 ERA, but Atlanta is confident in his development.

Why you should back the Mets

Left-hander David Peterson (1-0, 3.18 ERA) will make the start for New York following a successful big league debut at Boston. He is filling in for the injured Marcus Stroman in the rotation. Against the Red Sox, Peterson allowed two earned runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings, walking two and striking out three.

Second baseman Robinson Cano (.393) extended his hitting streak to five games on Saturday, and has three multi-hit games during that stretch. He has one home run and four RBIs. In 31 career games against Atlanta, Cano is hitting .298 (34-for-114) with 10 doubles, four homers, 12 RBIs and a .477 slugging percentage.

How to make Mets vs. Braves picks

SportsLine's model is leaning under on the total, as the simulation says New York and Atlanta relievers will combine to allow fewer than four combined runs in seven-plus innings, and it also says one side of the money line has the value. Head to SportsLine now to see the pick. 

So who wins Mets vs. Braves? And which side of the money line has all the value? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Mets vs. Braves spread to jump on Sunday, all from the advanced model that returned over $1,400 on MLB picks last year.

Yankees Adam Ottavino details life under quarantine for an MLB player

Yankees’ Adam Ottavino details life under quarantine for an MLB player

The 2020 season for the New York Yankees and the remainder of major league baseball was interesting, to say the least. Tumultuous times and maximum effort lead to a 60 game regular season, but things were far different than the norm, as Yankees relief pitcher Adam Ottavino recorded throughout the campaign.

Ultimately, this moment in time will be talked about in the history books for years to come, and with advanced technology to record and transcribe every part of it, it is interesting to see a behind the scenes look at how the MLB functioned during these times.



Masks, precautionary measures, transportation disruptions, you name it, Adam hits on everything in this fantastic capture of his experiences.

Ottavino was interviewed by ESPN on life during quarantine, and he gave some amazing answers:

During the shutdown, Gerrit [Cole] had moved to Connecticut, and that’s pretty close to where I live. We discussed on my drive up from Tampa throwing together, so for a while, we were throwing in my yard. Then eventually, as we got closer to summer camp finally starting, the Yankees let us back in the stadium. Obviously I knew that there was a narrative on Gerrit coming to the Yankees as a big free agent. People were probably dying to see him on the field. So I figured it was a good opportunity to kind of present him with the whole stadium empty there and just kind of get that epic shot. It was the first time he was there as a Yankee, even though it’s not a game.

Before playing Tampa Bay at the Trop, Ottavino described the eerie sense of emptiness:

That’s the cameraman [at the Trop] who is getting ready to shoot the game. The game is probably at least 30 minutes away from starting, but from the photo you would have no idea. There’s literally no one there.

The ESPN article includes pictures, and fantastic quotes, showing behind the scenes looks at how the players were treated by the medical staff and their methods during transportation.

Taking private trains via the Amtrak to Philadelphia, Baltimore, and more. Watching Aaron Boone manage the lines of his players boarding the train in a dark subway station is rather surreal, and boarding the planes with one player per row opens your eyes to the seriousness of this virus.

The MLB went through an unprecedented time in 2020, and so did the rest of the world. While the virus remains at large, progress is being made, and the hopes of a regular 2021 season are still viewed as optimistic.
