Baseball betting resumes Monday with an interesting NL east matchup to bet on sports with as Atlanta meets the Mets in New York. Baseball betting has been up and down for those who bet on sports with both of these teams, who have been inconsistent thus far in the young season.
The probable starters for this baseball betting matchup are scheduled to be right hander Derek Lowe of the Braves and left hander Johan Santana of the Mets. Lowe has gotten off to a good start to the season and has been one of the top Atlanta pitchers for those who bet on sports with the Braves. Lowe has a record of 4-1 and a 3.98 earned run average in 7 starts this baseball betting season.
Lowe has not had much baseball betting success against the Mets, however, as he has a mark of 1-2 with an 8.78 earned run average. Santana has been exceptional so far this baseball betting season. He has a record of 4-1 and a miniscule 0.91 earned run average. Santana has 6 starts so far this season. Although Santana has a 2.76 career earned run average against the Braves he is 0-3 lifetime versus Atlanta on the baseball betting board.
The New York Mets have been one of the hottest teams against the baseball betting line since last week as from May 4 through May 9 they won six consecutive games to climb into first place in the NL east. Pitching is the main reason for the Mets success as their staff earned run average is 6th best in all of baseball betting. Their offense is ranked in the middle of the road at 15th. Carlos Beltran has led the Mets attack with a .378 batting average, 6 home runs, and 22 runs batted in.
Atlanta lost nine out of fourteen games from April 26 through May 9. Atlanta's lineup has been weak and ranked just 22nd in offensive production. The Braves pitching staff ranked a solid 8th best in the majors and that has been what has saved them from a total collapse.

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
