The 2013 MLB betting season is off and running here at Cappers Info, and we are set to make more of our patented MLB picks for one of our favorite times of year. On Monday night, the New York Mets will be led onto the field by Jeremy Hefner, as they play host to the St. Louis Cardinals, who will be countering with Lance Lynn. The first pitch from Busch Stadium is set to be thrown out at 7:05 p.m. ET

We’re going to play the percentages in this game, and it isn’t going to be a popular MLB pick by any stretch of the imagination. Overnight, 73% of the MLB betting population is backing the Cardinals, and we just aren’t all that sure that they should be favored by this whopping 1 to 2 margin. The Mets are having a hard time hitting the ball at the moment, but generally speaking, they’re pitching well. RHP Jeremy Hefner has better stats than 0-4 suggests, and RHP Lance Lynn probably isn’t quite as good as 5-1 suggests either. We also know that if push comes to shove and the St. Louis bullpen is called into action, as it is likely to be in this game, it has a 5.23 bullpen ERA, and that has to weigh on the minds of bettors as well. We think that the Cardinals are fortunate to be 9-2 in their last 11 games, but we have to remember th that they do have four wins by just one run in that stretch. The door is going to be open for New York to come right in and at least cover the +1.5, if not win the game outright, and as a result, we are going to take the run-line in what could be a much closer game than the so called MLB expert handicappers suggest.

Mets @ Cardinals Pick 5/13/13: New York Mets +1.5 (-115)
Mets @ Cardinals Score Prediction: New York 4 – St. Louis 3
