New York Mets Form
The Mets were one of the teams that started the season well as they were 11-1. However, their luck has left them stranded as they have gone 16-27. They are really going through a bad patch as they lost 4 games in a row against the commentators and pundits expected that New York will win the game on Sunday, however that was not the case. The Mets have averaged 3.56 runs per game and have allowed 4.30 runs per game here at home for the season so far.

The Mets are really poor lately and I cannot see them getting anything in this game. On the other side, the Cubs are really good on the offense and I expect for them to continue that domination in this game as well, Go for the Cubs in this one.
