The weather forecast is not looking good for Monday's August 3, 2020 Mets-Braves game.  Words you rarely see on a site that promotes gambling: You may want to hold off on that bet. (Note that in addition to a generous welcome bonus up to $1000, BetOnline offers a true dime line up to -199)

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast at any time during this game with rain chances diminishing after 9 pm ET.  There is no indication early of a washout so, while a delay of game is possible, Gambling911.com does not anticipate a postponement.

This game is scheduled to start at 7:10 pm ET.

As Gambling911.com readers know, BetOnline reinstituted the 4.5/5 inning rule.  Moneyline bets will once again have action after the gm goes 5 innings; 4.5 innings if the home team is up.  This follows a brief period at the start of the season where games were required to go 8.5/9 innings in order for there to be action due to Covid-19 uncertainties.  If you're unhappy with your current book's rules, we suggest playing at BetOnline.
