New York finished off its current homestand with a 3-3 record and now embark on a 10-game trip, which will serve as the team’s longest this season.  The Mets record has also not been more than one game above or below .500 since July 31, when they were 53-51.  The starting staff has been doing its part, posting a 3.42 ERA since the All-Star break, the fourth-lowest mark in the majors during that span.  Only Oakland (2.66), San Diego (3.36) and Atlanta (3.40) have a lower ERA.  The club has a 23-29 record against divisional opponents this season (-850) and the total is 23-28 O/U in those contests.  New York is winless in eight games this season as a road underdog of +150 to +175 (-800) and 5-12 in this situation the last three years (-390).

Bettors must acknowledge some interesting series stats between these two clubs for Sunday’s finale.

Atlanta Braves at Florida Marlins

Atlanta used an eight-run eighth inning to capture a 10-5 win over Florida at Sun Life Stadium on Friday night.  “I can’t explain this ballgame,” manager Bobby Cox said.  “It’s hard enough to explain Friday night.  It’s baseball.”  The Braves are now 5-3 against the Marlins this season and moved their record to 18-16 against divisional opponents (-100).  The total is 11-20 O/U in their games against the NL East in 2010 and 76-93 O/U the last three years.  With today’s game being a rubber match, it’s important to note that the club is 16-1-4 in its last 21 series dating back to May 10.  Rookie outfielder Jason Heyward continues to lead the chase for NL Rookie of the Year, hitting .387 since being made active from the disabled list on July 15.  He went 3-for-3 with two walks and two runs last night.  Atlanta has averaged 5.7 runs per game and hit for a .277 combined average in compiling an impressive 20-12 daytime record (+760).
