Cleveland Guardians vs New York Mets Game 2 Predictions 5/21/2023


After Friday’s 10-9 victory over the Guardians, the New York Mets’ winning run was extended to three games.


The Mets defeated the dominant Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 and 3-2 in their previous two performances to win a three-game series at Citi Field.


Since mid-April, when they claimed two out of three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, it was their first series victory. The Mets are scoring 4.35 runs per game and are hitting .241/.323/.389, which ranks them 19th in the MLB.


In the past seven days and 213 at-bats, they hit .258/.323/.437 with ten home runs, eight doubles, and eight doubles.


In his last 23 at-bats, Pete Alonso hit four home runs, while Francisco Alvarez and Brett Baty each hit two during the past five games. The New York Mets rank third in NL East.


In the nightcap against Cleveland on Sunday, Justin Verlander is expected to get the ball first.


The 40-year-old right-hander made three starts and pitched 17 innings this year, going 1-2 with a 4.76 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and a 15/5 K/BBB ratio.


In an 8-5 home defeat to the Rays on Tuesday, Verlander was dreadful, giving up six runs in the process. 


The New York Mets have tallied a team on-base percentage of .323 in addition to a team batting average of .241 on the season.


They have been rung up on 347 instances (27th in MLB) and are sitting with 369 hits. New York is sitting with 51 long balls for the year to go along with 192 RBIs.


The Mets have a team SLG% of .389, and they score 4.35 runs per contest (19th in baseball). They have tallied 67 doubles while getting a free base 163 times and scoring 200 runs.


The New York pitching staff has relinquished 216 runs this year while having a team ERA of 4.78 (212 earned runs conceded).


They have given up 63 dingers and surrendered 4.87 runs per 9 innings (20th in the league). The Mets have a team WHIP of 1.368 and a FIP of 4.95 as a team on the year.


Their strikeout-to-walk ratio is 8.60 (382 strikeouts vs. 174 walks). They are currently ranked 16th in the league as a staff in total hits allowed with 372.


  • The NY Mets are 1-4 in their last five matches against the spread.
  • The NY Mets are 10-16 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 4 of the Mets’ last five games.

Cleveland Guardians vs New York Mets. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Mets. Only Shane Bieber and Justin Verlander can improve their Tuesday pitching circle performance.


They will attempt to recover in what could be considered a favorable matchup because Cleveland and New York had trouble at the bat this season.


The under on the totals would be my best choice for a Guardians vs. Mets betting prediction. Because the Mets appear to be a more dangerous offensive team than Cleveland, choose them in the side bet.


Jose Ramirez is 11-for-34 with two home runs against the right-handed veteran of the Mets, Justin Verlander, while the current Guardians are 13-for-66 against him.


However, in their previous 11 games, the Guardians only scored more than three runs four times. Verlander is going to rule. The New York Mets will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
