New York vs San Francisco MLB Pick

Two of the top pitchers in the National League will go at it. The Giants have been miserable in the second half of the season. The offense has been terrible and the defense has been below the Giants usual standards. Add that to a bullpen that is no longer shutting down teams late and you have 9-21 record in the second half. Taking the Mets as a live dog in this one as I have this game a toss up so there is a lot of value in the Mets +155.

Mets vs Giants Prediction:
Mets 3 – Giants 2
