We’re back at it again on Wednesday with more MLB action to play. There are some really great matchups on the diamond tonight and we will take full advantage. We have put in the effort, done the homework and are now ready to find the winners. Let’s hit it, brother!

New York Mets vs. Baltimore Orioles

Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 – 07:05 PM EDT at Camden Yards

Hand up, I had the Mets last night and the Orioles continued their hot play and got the win over the Metropolitans. Not going to happen tonight, folks. No way, no how. The Mets bounce back and I can describe why I am so confident in two words. Matt Harvey.

Former Met Matt Harvey will take the mound for the Orioles tonight, and why, I have no idea. I don’t know how Harvey is still in Major League Baseball. He is 3-6 with an ERA of 6.62 coming into tonight’s matchup. He’s not good anymore.

The Orioles bullpen is not good either, which sets up an opportunity for the Mets to put some crooked numbers on the scoreboard. The pitching matchup also means the Orioles may struggle to do the same.

New York will send Taijuan Walker to the hill tonight to take on Harvey. Walker has been excellent for New York in his first season in Queens. He is 4-2 with an earned run average of 2.17. He’s looked great for the Mets.

Even with all their injuries and lineup patches they have had to deploy, I still feel confident this Mets team will be able to hit Harvey early and often.

I’m sure Matt Harvey is hoping to turn back the clock and shut down his old team. It’s admirable in some ways, but delusional in others. It’s not going to happen. Harvey will get hit tonight and the Mets will control the game. That's why you should look for your MLB odds at Bovada (visit our Bovada Review)

I’m playing a first five inning bet tonight because I can’t see how Harvey makes it past that spot and I think Walker might well cruise into the sixth inning. Grab the Mets for your MLB Picks!
