New York Mets vs Cincinnati Reds 5/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The New York Mets will go against the Cincinnati Reds in MLB action in Great American Ball Park, OH, on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 6:40 PM ET.


The Mets put up six runs and twice grabbed the lead in the first four innings, which is one thing to take away from their defeat on Sunday.


The pitchers weren’t working together, though, as was the case frequently lately, and they gave up 13 runs in the defeat.


It was the Mets’ 11th defeat in the previous 14 games, dropping them from 14-7 to 17-18. When compared to this current bunch, the 101-win club from last year seems like a distant memory.


The offense struggled, ranking 21st in runs per game to start the week. The Mets rank 13th in OBP with a top-five walk rate and HBP total.


They only have 36 home runs, 11 of which came off the bat of Pete Alonso, which results in a bottom-10 slugging percentage.


Their season batting average places them in the bottom 10 as well. They only scored 3.29 runs per game over the last 14 matches.


The Mets were limited to three runs or fewer in seven of their 14 games. The situation is not dire, but in 2023 many of the bats were disappointed.


  • The New York Mets are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The NY Mets are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games with Cincinnati.
  • The Mets are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

New York Mets vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 5/9/2023


The Reds took an early lead in the first inning of the game on Sunday before losing it right away. Add tax. Cincinnati suffered a 17-4 defeat in front of their own supporters after allowing 11 runs in the second inning.


After the defeat, Cincinnati’s pitching staff’s 5.19 team ERA plummeted to 27th place. After that, the Reds’ relievers managed to keep their FIP and WAR rankings in the top ten.


However, Luke Weaver will try to avoid the eight runs that were charged to the starter. Weaver is back at it after a terrible 2022 season with a 7.88 ERA and an accompanying 169 ERA-. 


Even worse, his HR/9 increased from 0.3 in 2022 to 2.8 in the hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park.


He has at least four runs allowed in each of his outings this year, and for the Reds, he basically simply eats innings. Cincinnati’s odds don’t seem good if the offense needs to save Weaver. 


  • The Cincinnati Reds are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Cincinnati’s last 6 matches at home.
  • The Reds are 7-13 SU in their last 20 matches at home against the NY Mets.

New York Mets vs Cincinnati Reds. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Mets. The years for both starting pitchers were difficult.


One of them is destined for Cooperstown, and the other only had two half seasons as an above-average pitcher. Although neither offense is particularly strong nor effective right now, the Mets’ batters have a stronger resume.


They should also have little trouble utilizing the ample size of Great American Ball Park. It’s hard to predict a frigid club, but the Mets are playing a similarly chilly opponent.


The Mets sweep the Reds to win this game as they storm into Cincinnati. The New York Mets will win to a predicted score of 7-2.
