<b>ASA TOP PLAY 10* ON OVER: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves, Friday at 7:10 PM ET</b><Br><Br>Both teams are off games in which they scored just 2 runs last night. However, the O/U on this one opened up at a 10 with good reason. The Mets were hosting the Red Sox last night and fell short but now face Sean Newcomb of the Braves whom they already faced last week. The Braves hung on for a 2-1 win hosting the Rays last night. While their bats were quiet in that game, Atlanta will now take advantage of again seeing Rick Porcello as they faced him this past weekend in their opening series of the season. Porcello struggled and gave up 7 earned runs in just 2 innings in that outing against the Braves. He had a 5.52 ERA with the Red Sox last season and giving a team a second look at you after they just rocked you in your prior start usually doesn't go well for a struggling hurler. That being said, Porcello has seen his better days in this league and is on the downhill slide at this point in his career. Atlanta's Newcomb had a ton of trouble with his command against the Mets this past weekend and it took 82 pitches for him just to record 10 outs as he lasted just 3 and 1 / 3 innings in that start. The Braves lefty is notorious for being a slow starter as he had a rough April each of the past two years. In this strange pandemic year, this is Newcomb's April and, per our computer math model, more struggles ensue today for both starting pitchers and the bullpens will again be called upon far too early as a result.
