The Subway Series between the New York Mets and New York Yankees resumes this Friday with Game 1 of a three-game set at New Yankee Stadium. These two teams have met in interleague play every year since 1997, with the Yankees holding a 56-42 edge, including 29-20 in the Bronx. MLB Network will be on hand for the latest chapter beginning at 7:05 PM ET.
The Mets have a good chance of cutting into that lead. After years of mediocre results, they’re the hottest team in the National League, and they’ve got one of the hottest pitchers ready to take the mound on Friday. Jacob deGrom (2.64 career FIP in 25 starts) allowed just two earned runs in his first three starts combined, and that’s good for one betting unit of profit on a team record of 2-1.
The Yankees are expected to respond with Michael Pineda (3.16 career FIP in 44 starts), who has already racked up 3.04 betting units after leading the Bronx Bombers to three straight victories. Pineda has an unsightly 5.00 ERA thus far in 2015, but his 2.63 FIP and unusually high .392 BABIP tell a better story of how well Pineda has pitched this year.
