Reds vs. Mets odds, predictions, picks: bet Max Scherzer's return

Max Scherzer is pitching to the New York Mets today. How great is it?

The metropolitan is slowly becoming healthier as the calendar changes to July and fierce competition in the NL East is intensifying.

Of course, July usually prepares for a crazy rush to move trading deadlines and improve rosters. Mets has regained Scherzer, and Jacob DeGrom may have beaten5 out of 6 batters byat the start of rehab on July 3.

Since Scherzer's last start, Mets has been an impressive 25-16 and has survived the storm well without two aces. At tonight's Cincinnati, Mets is about to win the first two of the Best 3 Series against Tanking Red.

Mets vs. Reds Prediction

Pitching match is Clearly support the Mets. Uncertainty about how much Scherzer will go today.

SNY reported inthat the Mets Scherzer's plan was to throw 90 balls around 6 innings. If you go according to Mets' plan, that's enough.

His counterpart Nick Lodolo hasn't played in the big league since April. This will be his first start since being activated from the 60-day injured list. In April, Rodro struggled with 5.52 ERA, but his 3.80x ERA and 3.17x FIP show that he was actually the most unlucky.

With that small sample size in April, he gave up just below two home runs per nine innings (1.8). Rodro was named in the Top 10 in the 2019 MLB Draft, so you can see that he has a solid outlook pedigree.

I want to bet on MLB.

However, although Rodro is ranked "above average" in some categories, he is not an elite. His outlook is almost all 55/80, with 50 being the average and 80 being the elite. Coming in 55 for his pitch and 60 grade for his control will profile his potential as Peel's third starter.

Currently he is not at or near that level. Mets is an absolutely legitimate favorite this afternoon. Rodro is by no means an elite arm, this is a batter's stadium.

Look for the Mets to win on Tuesday in Max Scherzer's arms.
