San Diego Padres vs New York Mets 7/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The San Diego Padres will meet with the New York Mets in MLB action in Citi Field, NY, on Friday, July 22, 2022, at 7:10 PM ET. Despite Fernando Tatis Jr.’s absence for the whole half, the Padres concluded the first half of the year at 52-42.


In order to provide the Padres with the greatest beginning depth in baseball, the team used six pitchers in what is perhaps the finest starting rotation in baseball.


With 50 quality appearances, San Diego is second in baseball and has the 11th-best ERA. The Padres, who begin the second half in Queens, also have the sixth-best road record in MLB (27-21).


Yu Darvish, a seasoned pitcher for the Padres, will take the mound on Friday. Over the past several seasons, Darvish successfully evolved from being a pitcher who primarily used his power arm to becoming more of a pitcher.


Darvish leads the club in innings pitched (108), is second on the team in quality starts (13), and only gave up 85 hits. In 2016, Darvish had a league-high K percent of 31.7 percent; this season, it dropped to a more modest 23 percent. 


  • The San Diego Padres are 3-6 SU in their last 9 matches. 
  • San Diego is 3-10 SU in their last 13 matches on the road. 
  • The Padres are 2-6 SU in their last 8 matches on the road against the NY Mets.

San Diego Padres vs New York Mets Predictions 7/22/2022


The New York Mets had a 58-35 record at the end of the first half and held a 2.5-game advantage over the aggressive Atlanta Braves.


Despite several injuries to their once-heralded starting staff, New York led the division for almost the entire first half.


The ace pitcher Jacob deGrom, who is yet to throw this year, Scherzer, who spent a career-high seven weeks on the IL, and Tylor Megill, who was sidelined since June with a strained shoulder, all sustained injuries.


The Mets have Scherzer back and are now eighth in MLB for quality starts. DeGrom may not be far behind.


While the Mets’ pitching dominated much of the first half, the team also benefited from strong contributions from its regular lineup.


The Mets rank sixth in batting average and fifth in runs scored per game. However, when it comes to slugging percentage, they are a more modest 14th.


With 78 RBI, Pete Alonso has the most in the big leagues, and teammate Francisco Lindor is close behind with 66 RBI. In terms of runs scored, Brandon Nimmo is third in baseball, and Starling Marte, with 92 hits, is tenth.


  • The NY Mets are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches. 
  • The NY Mets are 13-7 SU in their last 20 matches at home. 
  • The NY Mets are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches at home against San Diego.

San Diego Padres vs New York Mets. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Mets. The Mets thrived at home, against right-handers, and when Scherzer was on the mound, going 28-15, 38-21, and 8-3, respectively, while the Padres were a respectable road squad this season.


I firmly anticipate a close game that is decided by no more than one or two runs. Both of these clubs are excellent in close games, but recent trends were not in the Padres’ favor.


The Padres’ recent record is 4-6 and their recent 20-game record is barely 7-13. When playing a more productive club like the Mets, the Padres’ depleted lineup appears to be finally costing them.


In their previous 20 matches, San Diego only hit 14 home runs and is batting a meager.233. In this game, Scherzer will hold the Padres in check and have sufficient backing to lead the Mets to victory. The New York Mets will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
