Why you should back the Braves

Second baseman Ozzie Albies provides Atlanta with a quality switch-hitter. Albies has good pitch recognition skills to make contact with the ball. The 27-year-old also plays stout defense in the infield. He owns a .278 batting average with three home runs and 19 RBI. In Friday's win over the Mets, Albies was 1-of-3 with a solo homer.

Third baseman Austin Riley plays solid defense in the corner with a rocket of an arm to throw lasers across the diamond. Riley has a smooth swing with the strength to push the ball into the gaps. This season, he's hitting .241 with three home runs and 18 RBI. On May 7 versus the Red Sox, Riley went 2-of-4 with two singles. See which team to pick here

Why you should back the Mets

First baseman Pete Alonso may not be the best contact hitter but he certainly has light-tower power. Alonso owns outstanding pop when he connects with the ball and is a nice asset driving in runs for New York. This season, he's batting .215 with nine home runs and 20 RBI. He's logged 2-plus hits in two of his last three games. On May 10, Alonso was 2-of-4 with a double.

Outfielder Brandon Nimmo is a solid playmaker on the diamond. Nimmo covers ground with ease in the outfield while being a reliable hitter at the plate. His batting average is .228 with five home runs and 25 RBI. Nimmo has recorded a hit in seven of his last eight outings. On May 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals, the 31-year-old went 1-of-4 with a three-run homer. See which team to pick here
