Why you should back the Marlins
While the Mets have a strong starter as well, Miami is sending Rogers to the mound with full confidence. Rogers has a blistering 2.67 ERA in 24 starts this season, including a 2.60 ERA on the road. He threw six shutout innings against the Mets in his only start against New York in 2021, and Rogers has 151 strikeouts in 128 innings this season. Rogers has been notably dominant against right-handed hitters (.594 OPS allowed), and he can hand the ball to a strong bullpen.
Miami is currently No. 2 in the NL in wins above replacement among bullpens, and it has a 3.76 ERA with only 0.79 home runs allowed per nine innings. The Mets do have a big power source in Pete Alonso, but New York is dead-last in the National League in hits (1,188), with bottom-five rankings in doubles (216), home runs (168), walks (475), slugging percentage (.388) and OPS (.703) for the season.
Why you should back the Mets
New York has a strong projection in terms of their pitching against Miami's hitting. The Mets will send 30-year-old right-hander Stroman to the mound on Tuesday afternoon, and he is enjoying a fantastic 2021 season. Stroman is tied for the MLB lead with 32 starts, and he owns a 3.00 ERA across 174 innings. The veteran has been even better at home with a 2.96 ERA this season, and Stroman has dominated the Marlins with a 2.13 ERA across three appearances.
Stroman is walking only 2.17 batters per nine innings this season while generating nearly four strikeouts for every walk. Finally, he is one of the best in the business at generating grounders, with a 57.4 percent career groundball rate. Miami's offense is dead-last in the National League in walks (430) and on-base percentage (.299), with below-average marks virtually across the statistical board.
