Yankees vs. Mets Game Preview and Betting Prediction for June 26, 2024

The New York Yankees and New York Mets are set to face off in game two of the Subway Series 2024 tonight, June 26, 2024, at Citi Field. The Mets got to Gerrit Cole last night and held on for a 9-7 win. The Yankees will look to bounce back tonight and they are clearly the better team in this matchup at 52-29 vs the Mets 38-39 record on the season.


Game Preview

New York Yankees

The Yankees have been in solid form this season, boasting a strong lineup that includes power hitters like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Judge, in particular, has been a standout performer, leading the team in home runs and RBIs. Stanton is currently out for four weeks due to a strained hamstring and Anthony Rizzo is out but the Yankees lineup still has plenty of pop.


Key Players to Watch:

  • Aaron Judge: ALL RISE! Judge went deep last night in a Yankees comeback effort but they came up just short. Judge has hit safely in 8 of his last 9 games and he has really good numbers against Mets starting pitcher Sean Manaea coming in hitting 5 for 12 (.417) with 2 career homeruns against him.

  • Luis Gil: He had his worst start of the season his last time out where he served up 7 runs in 1.1 innings pitched but prior to that he was one of the best pitchers in the league this season. He's 9-2 with a 2.77 ERA so look for him to bounce back tonight.


New York Mets

The Mets have struggled this season and are currently 13 games back of the Division Leading Phillies in the National League East. However, the guys in the lineup featuring stars like Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso, are capable of explosive offensive performances like we saw last night.


Key Players to Watch:

  • Brandon Nimmo: He's been hot at the plate and comes in on a 10 game hitting streak with 5 multi hit games during that stretch.

  • Sean Manaea: The veteran will get the start tonight and he's struggled over the last month with a 6.75 ERA.


Betting Prediction

Betting Odds

  • Moneyline: Yankees -130, Mets +110

  • Run Line: Yankees -1.5 (+130), Mets +1.5 (-155)

  • Over/Under: 8.5 runs


Analysis

Offense

The Yankees have a slight edge in offensive firepower, thanks to their deep lineup and consistent power hitting. The Mets, while potent, have been somewhat inconsistent, making it crucial for their stars to perform at peak levels. The Yankees come in averaging 5.01 runs per game and the Mets come in averaging 4.71 runs per game.


Pitching

Luis Gil comes in 9-2 with a 2.77 ERA and Sean Manaea comes in 4-3 with a 4.16 ERA but as mentioned above, Gil is coming off of a rough start and Manaea has struggled for the last month. The pitching advantage goes to the Yankees in this one with it likely that Gil will get back on track and the guys in this Mets lineup have not faced him before.


Recent Form

The Mets have been the better team as of late going 8-2 over their last 10 while the Yankees have gone 3-7 over their last 10.


Prediction

I like the Yankees in tonight's game based on the matchup we have.
