Mets vs. Rangers Key Players to Watch

New York Mets

Francisco Lindor: The Mets shortstop continues to be one of the most underrated players in Major League Baseball. He's batting an impressive .280 on the season with a WAR of 2.2. He's the heart and soul of this Mets team and a big reason for their current hot streak.

Texas Rangers

Andrew Heaney: The Rangers pitcher has been better than his 2-8 record indicates, but he's coming off two straight starts where he's allowed three earned runs. He needs to find a way to get back on track tonight.

Mets vs. Rangers prediction and pick

The Mets recent hot streak isn't just a fluke, their offense has been on fire of late. They lead all of Major League Baseball in OPS over the past 30 days at .797 while also scoring the sixth most runs with 135.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are dead last in OPS over the same time frame at .618.

So, it's really that simple. This game is a meeting between the best offense in baseball over the past month and the worst. We shouldn't hesitate in betting on the Mets to complete the series sweep tonight.

Pick: Mets -110
