New York Mets vs Chicago Cubs 5/24/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The New York Mets will go against the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


On Wednesday, Kodai Senga will take the mound. Senga was outstanding against the Rays in his previous start, allowing only one run over 6.1 innings while fanning an astounding 12 batters.


Although the rookie right-hander occasionally struggled with command, walking 26 batters this season, overall performance was strong, posting a 3.77 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and a 4-2 record in 43 innings thrown.


He is going against the Cubs for the first time today. Senga struck out 55 times overall. The New York Mets rank second in the NL East.


After a good homestand, New York is just beginning its road trip. They swept the Guardians in three games to move above the .500 level after winning two of the three games they played against the Rays.


It was a significant homestand because they did not win a series in a month before beating the Rays. Jeff McNeil is getting on base and has nine hits in his previous six games, but his monthly OPS is only .622.


The seasoned second baseman only went 5 for 26 with no RBIs against the Cubs last year. McNeil has a respectable.739 OPS and 16 RBIs so far this season.


The Mets bullpen entered the game in 53 save situations with a 77.8% save percentage. The relievers took over 58 runners in the year, and 25.9% reached base.


Mets pitchers went into the match with runners on base 39 times and appeared in high-leverage situations 51 times. The Mets threw 150 bullpen innings this season.


The relievers are third in the league with 35 holds overall this season. They made 14 saves this year and missed four of their 18 chances.


  • 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 3 of the Mets’ last five matches.

New York Mets vs Chicago Cubs  Predictions 5/24/2023


Marcus Stroman will start this game for the Cubs. In his previous start, Stroman made up for a poor performance by holding the Phillies to just one run over six innings, earning himself the victory.


With a 3.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a 3-4 record in 56 innings pitched, the veteran was consistent, allowing two runs or fewer in all but two of his appearances this season.


Last season, Stroman faced the Mets and surrendered one run in 4.1 innings. Throughout his career, he gave up seven runs in nine innings. The Chicago Cubs rank third in the NL Central. 


Chicago got out to a fast start but stumbled. In the entire month, they only won one series, which they did against the Marlins. On a nine-game road trip, they had a 2-7 record and suffered a sweep at the hands of the Astros.


With two defeats in three games against the Phillies on Sunday, the road trip ended. Last season, Dansby Swanson destroyed the Mets, hitting four home runs and driving in 13 runs.


The 29-year-old slugger had a recent quiet stretch at the plate, scoring just three runs in his last nine games despite having a respectable .783 OPS and 18 RBIs overall. Cody Bellinger is still listed as injured.


In 10 save opportunities, Chicago sent bullpen relievers to the mound, and they earned five saves. They sent 148 relievers to the rise this season and are now placed 28th in the league with a save percentage of 50.0%.


Their relief pitchers entered the game 33 times with runners on base and 34 times in high-leverage situations.


Out of 48 inherited base runners, Chicago relief pitchers have a 25.0% inherited score rate. The Cubs have 20 holds out of 31 save opportunities but also missed five saves.


  • The Chicago Cubs are 3-2 in their last five matches against the spread.
  • The Chicago Cubs are 13-11 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 4 of the Cubs’ last five matches.

New York Mets vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. The New York Mets struggled on the road, sitting below .500 after Tuesday’s 7-2 loss.


The Cubs should be able to defeat Mets starter Kodai Senga. Senga has a season ERA of 3.77, but his FIP is 4.35. Thus his ERA is a little deceptive.


Senga struggles with exercising control. In his last six outings, he faced 20 walks from batters. With a 6.30 ERA on the road, the youngster performed poorly.


Additionally, the team has a decent opportunity, with Marcus Stroman taking the mound for the Chicago Cubs.


In four of his previous five starts, Stroman held his opponent to two runs or fewer, and in four of those appearances, he pitched at least six innings. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
