Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 4.59 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Nola is 9-7 with a 3.30 ERA and 185 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
New York Mets Betting Preview
The New York Mets have scored 19 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Mets have won 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Brandon Nimmo leads the Mets with 63 hits and 21 RBI, while Jeff McNeil and Francisco Lindor have combined for 105 hits and 56 RBI. Carlos Carrasco gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. Carrasco is 2-1 with a 4.02 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 4-9 in their last 13 Wednesday games and 2-6 in their last 8 road games. The Mets are 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 15-7 in their last 22 Wednesday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Phillies last 5 overall. The over is 9-4-1 in Mets last 14 overall. The Phillies are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in New York and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
The New York Mets have had issues stringing wins together this season, and Carlos Carrasco hasn't been good through 25.1 innings. The Philadelphia Phillies offense is due for a breakout result, and Aaron Nola has followed up poor showings with respectable games. This is a spot where the Phillies have the edge. I'll lay the cheap price with the road team.
