Opening Day Looks Good for Mets

Finally, some good news: odds are that the Mets will win on Opening Day. They have the longest active winning streak on Opening Day (5) and own the MLB record with 11 straight Opening Day victories (1970-1981). Also, since 1970, have won 32 of 41 Opening Day contests (after starting their history 0-8 in season openers).
