The New York Mets vs. Chicago Cubs in MLB action at Wrigley Field, Chicago, on Thursday, May 25, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


With a 25-2 record, the Mets are second in the NL East and have won seven of their past ten games going into this game. Despite having a 20-26 record, the Cubs sit third in the NL Central.


Chicago is currently on a two-game losing streak and has only won three of their last 10 matches. They are still the favorites, though, at -120.


The Cubs defeated the Mets 7-2 in the series’ opening game. Brandon Nimmo had three hits in the loss, and Pete Alonso’s home run and two RBIs were the only runs the team scored in this contest.


Tommy Pham and Eduardo Escobar were the only other players to receive hits on the day. Tylor Megill struggled, giving up four runs in just 3.2 innings of work.


 This offseason, the New York Mets didn’t hesitate to spend money. They did lose some important players to the team over the winter, but that could be a bit of an understatement.


To name just a few pitchers, Chris Bassitt, Taijuan Walker, and Jacob DeGrom all left for free agency. The Mets replaced them by signing Kodai Senga, Jose Quintana, and Justin Verlander (for nearly $43 million AAV).


After Scherzer left the Detroit Tigers in the 2014 offseason, Verlander and Scherzer are again flourishing and on the same team.


The Mets signed David Robertson, Adam Ottavino, and Edwin Diaz to bullpen deals, a record for a closer.


Regarding the hitters, they were able to trade James McCann for Omar Narvaez and bring back Brandon Nimmo for an eight-year, $162 million contract.


They also spent a little money on some lesser-known names. They spent about $500 million on all of their new contracts combined. 


This season, Pete Alonso was the Mets’ top power hitter, hitting 18 home runs to the next closest player’s four. Alonso leads the league in OPS (8.66), slugging percentage (.541), and RBIs (43), among other statistics.


Among all New York batters thus far, Brandon Nimmo has the highest batting average (.301) and on-base percentage (.381).


New York’s starts were mediocre, but only the best will do when standards are high. David Robertson reverted to form with only three earned runs allowed in 21.1 innings thrown and eight saves in nine chances this season.


  • The total went over in seven of the NY Mets’ last 10 matches.
  • The NY Mets are 5-2 SU in their last seven matches.
  • The NY Mets are 0-6 SU in their last six matches against the Chicago Cubs.

New York Mets vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 5/25/2023


Everyone but Patrick Wisdom and Ian Happ recorded a hit in their 7-2 victory in the series’ opening game, but Happ at least had two walks to his credit. While Christopher Morel homered for the sixth game in a row, Matt Mervis had a total of three RBIs. Drew Smyly pitched five innings in a brief but effective outing, allowing just two runs to the Mets as the bullpen took care of the rest.

Chicago spent a lot in the offseason, even though they are rebuilding, adding players like Dansby Swanson, Jameson Taillon, Drew Smyly, Cody Bellinger, and Trey Mancini. The biggest eye-opener is Swanson’s seven-year, $177 million contract.


Whether the contract will be worthwhile remains to be seen, additionally, they took flyers on free agents Michael Fulmer and Eric Hosmer.


In order to solidify the infield for the long term, the Cubs also signed Nico Hoerner to a contract extension this season. Additionally, Chicago and Happ agreed to a three-year deal.


Although Nico Hoerner has 24 RBIs to Patrick Wisdom’s 23, Hoerner has more home runs for the Cubs this season. The Cubs’ Morel has the greatest slugging and OPS percentages, and Ian Happ is the only player for Chicago with an OBP over.400.


With 12 steals, Hoerner leads the Cubs in this category as well. Three different pitchers have an ERA under 3.00. Marcus Stroman leads the league with 54 strikeouts, but Justing Steele has the best ERA at 2.20.


Mark Leiter excelled with two saves and 31 strikeouts in the bullpen. Additionally, he has a 1.77 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. 


  • The total went over in 11 Chilliwack Cubs’ last 13 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 3-7 SU in their last 10 matches.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Chicago Cubs’ last six games against the New York Mets.

New York Mets vs. Chicago Cubs The MLB pick for this game is the New York Mets. In this instance, take a bit of a risk. Despite Carrasco’s horrendous ERA, it might not stay that high indefinitely.


He is therefore due for a couple of strong performances. Hendricks will probably be a little uneasy and overexert himself on the mound. The Mets’ offense will score more than two runs when they play again.


Chicago is 9-16 against teams that are better than.500. Even though the Cubs won the first two games, they might not have the ability to finish a sweep. The New York Mets will win by a predicted score of 6-4.
