The Mets-Guardians series was looking like it will be played Monday and Tuesday without issue.  Wednesday might be a different story as scattered storms are in the forecast for Wednesday afternoon.  Currently, the forecast calls for these storms to develop later in the day.  Fortunately, this one is scheduled for a 1:10 pm ET start.  Gambling911.com's early odds of a postponement of any game in this series are coming in at 20% early on.

What Happens to My Bet If a Game is Suspended or Postponed?

Obviously, when a game is postponed prior to its start, all bets are voided.  You'll be sure to hate on your sportsbook after that winning G911 Sports Hub capper pick is coming through only to have the game abbreviated due to rain.

The sticky situation, and one that differs across sportsbooks, is when a game is suspended and at what point this occurs.

Bets are typically voided should the game fail to make it to the 5th inning. 

It's important to understand rules vary based on the type of bets.  For example, money line wagers require a game to go a full five innings. Totals and prop bets require a full game to play out are usually voided.

Even if a game hits the over prior to a suspension, some books still will not honor the over bet.  It is important to check the rules beforehand.

With games deemed as "suspended" things get really confusing depending on where the bet was placed.

Bets may remain in play if the game takes place and is final within 24 to 36 hours of being suspended. DraftKings uses the 36-hour standard. Others require the game to be played later in the same day.

Before placing your baseball bets on Wednesday's Mets vs. Guardians game, make sure you monitor the weather forecast first. Things can certainly change as game time approaches.

Mets @ Guardians Series Preview

Cleveland is by far the better team here as they own a 29-17 record and they are especially good at home (14-6).  New York is 20-25 coming into this series.

The New York Mets have one of the worst bullpens at the moment.

Clay Holmes and Emmanuel Clase are tied for the most saves this season, with 13 saves.  Clase is the Cleveland closer.

Alas, all this being said, the Mets are 9-1 in this series dating back to 2013 and they shut out Cleveland in three games last season.

Monday

Tyler Megill is 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA.  He returns off the injury list and likely won't last many innings. 

The Mets have a closer problem. Edwin Díaz remains the Mets’ closer but the reliever’s role will, at least for now, be more “fluid", according to manager Carlos Mendoza.

“This is a guy that, he'll do whatever it takes to help this team win a baseball game -- whether that's pitching in the seventh, eighth, ninth, whatever it is,” Mendoza said prior to New York's 7-3 win against the Marlins. “Now it's up to me and all of us, as the game progresses and things unfold, to make that decision where I want to use him. But he's willing to do whatever it takes.”

The remarks come on the heels of three blown leads in his past three outings and three blown saves in his past six games. His ERA after 18 appearances sits at 5.50, with five saves in eight opportunities.

Ben Lively starts for Cleveland.  He's 2-2 with a 3.06 ERA. 

Lively allowed five hits and three earned runs over five innings in Tuesday’s win over the Rangers.  Before that he allowed four runs in just shy of 12 innings of play.

Seven Mets have faced Lively in 21 at bats, having four hits and one home run to go along with two RBI's (.190). 

The Guardians certainly have an edge here.

Tuesday

Mets Adrian Houser 0-3, 7.44 ERA vs. Carlos Carrasco 2-4, 5.16 ERA

J.D. Martinez has had his way with Carrasco, going 10 of 27 at bats with two home runs.  He has 9 RBI's.

Carrasco's last two starts have been good one's but prior to that he allowed 8 runs against the Astros and 5 runs versus the Red Sox.

Houser allowed four runs in five innings of work in a no-decision against the Cubs in his last start on May 2.  

This one has the potential to go Over with the total likely posted at 8.5 or 9.

Wednesday

Mets Jose Quintana 1-4, 5.21 ERA vs. Guardians Triston McKenzie 2-3, 3.23 ERA

Triston McKenzie struck out five Twins across 6 ⅔ innings on Friday. He walked four, allowed two hits, and one earned run.

Prior to that, he was charged with two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox.

Quintana surrendered four earned runs across five innings in a loss to the Braves on Friday.  And, before that, surrendered eight runs on 10 hits in just 2 2/3 innings of work.

If you must make a pick here, do take Cleveland.
