The Mets have won every series to start the championship
The 2022 championship began well for the New York Mets. The team, led by Buck Showalter since this season, has been stronger in all three starting series and is coming into the games against San Francisco in 1st place in the National League East with a 6-3 balance. First, the Mets beat Washington 5-1, 7-3, 5-0, 2-4 on the road. Then, also on the road, they handled division rival Philadelphia, 4-5, 2-0, 9-6. Finally, in their first home series of the season, New York outscored Arizona, 10-3, 2-3, 5-0.
The New York Mets starting pitcher for the first meeting with San Francisco is Tylor Megill. In two starts in the new championship, the 26-year-old pitcher has not allowed a hit in 10.1 innings.
San Francisco confirm to be a very strong team
As Gabe Kapler's team begins the new championship run, they show that last year's 107-55 record is far from a fluke. San Francisco comes into the games in New York against the Mets with a 6-2 balance. First, the Giants handled Miami, 6-5, 1-2, 3-2, at home. Then, also at home, the Giants wrapped up a divisional win against San Diego, 2-4, 13-2, 2-1. And ahead of their trip to New York, San Francisco won every game against Cleveland in their first away series, 4-1, 4-2, 8-1.
Alex Cobb, 34, will pitch for the Giants in their opening game against the Mets. In his debut game in the new league, the pitcher allowed 2 runs in 5 innings in a 13-2 win over San Diego.
The 2021 season series ended with San Francisco winning 5-1. The Giants beat the Mets in all three games in New York.
Expert Betting Tips
The main thing that characterizes both teams at the start of the 2022 championship is their excellent defensive play. San Francisco leads the way defensively with a 2.38 earned run average per game. And the New York Mets are third on that list with 2.78. The starting pitchers assigned to the first game are also credible. Cobb is experienced enough not to fail, and Megill hasn't missed a hit in 2 starts. It looks like the upcoming game is bound to be low-scoring.
Also, a bet on a San Francisco win is worth considering. The Giants are a more balanced team that already had success last season. While you can expect a change of pace from the Mets – the team entered the season with a new manager, and failed last season.
