New York Mets (35-38) vs. Chicago Cubs (36-39)

As MLB season moves forward, New York Mets and Chicago Cubs prepare to do battle in a dramatic Sunday evening clash at Wrigley Field – each looking to improve sub-.500 records – on June 23, 2024 from 7:10 PM ET until 7:10 PM ET broadcast by ESPN and provides intriguing prospects for MLB betting picks. Both sides have displayed resilience lately suggesting an intense and tight battle as each bids to climb higher up the divisional standings.

The Mets, despite having an overall poor record, have shown some promise lately by winning four out of their last five games. Their offensive lineup boasts an average batting average of .246, amassing 621 hits and 83 homers to date this season; on-base percentage stands at .317 while their slugging percentage stands at .399. Although their offensive stats may not be impressive at first glance, they have proven sufficient support for an outstanding pitching staff with 4.13 ERA/ 1.3WHIP combined!

On the opposite side, Chicago Cubs have also recently shown signs of recovery with three wins in five games recently and an improved offensive firepower, boasting 571 hits and 73 homers combined for a .230 team batting average and team WHIP of 1.27; this compares favorably with New York. Their pitching staff, though, has fared slightly better with an ERA of 3.86 for their pitchers as compared with 6.62 strikeouts by opposing batters for this particular team alone!

David Peterson (3-0 W-L, 3.97 ERA) vs. Javier Assad (4-2 W-L, 2.75 ERA)

David Peterson of the New York Mets presents a compelling case to both bettors and fans alike. Although his 3.97 ERA might suggest otherwise, his undefeated record (3-0) demonstrates his ability to win crucial innings without giving up runs; yet Peterson’s 1.41 WHIP indicates otherwise as it allows runners on base frequently- which could prove precarious against an aggressive Cubs offense capable of capitalizing on such opportunities. His success depends on taking care in early game situations as his effectiveness diminishes rapidly after seeing him twice or three times through. 

Javier Assad has been one of the cornerstones of Cubs rotation with an outstanding 2.75 ERA and 4-2. win/loss record that showcases his ability to remain calm under pressure and manage games efficiently. His 1.25 WHIP and 79 strikeouts over 78 2/3 innings demonstrate his ability to not only limit base runners but also escape jams via striking out, which will prove crucial against an aggressive Mets lineup with some power options. Assad’s ability to limit home runs (he only gave up eight in over 78 innings pitched) will be critical against power hitters who look to capitalize on any miscues or errors by Peterson, as this matchup gives him a great opportunity to use his low ERA and strong command in early and middle innings where his main strengths lie.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

New York Mets vs. Chicago Cubs 6/23/24 Betting Picks

As both teams share similar patterns and strengths, this game appears set for an intense struggle. Based on the pitching matchup and recent offensive output, perhaps an edge may go to the Cubs due to Assad’s recent outstanding form.

Assuming both pitchers’ abilities to control games are considered, when betting MLB picks should consider betting under. Furthermore, team lineup updates and any potential injuries prior to kick-off is crucial; for more excitement the best betting websites might provide appealing props such as strikeouts or homer runs given each pitcher’s history and power-hitting capabilities of his/her/their teams.
