The Line: New York Mets -163 / Philadelphia Phillies +153 --- Over/Under: 7.5
The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets begin a three-game series Monday afternoon.
The Philadelphia Phillies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Phillies have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Phillies have won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Freddy Galvis leads Philly with 47 hits and 11 RBI while Ryan Howard and Odubel Herrera have combined for 37 RBI. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost six of their last nine road games. Severino Gonzalez gets the ball, and he’s 2-1 with a 7.11 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Gonzalez’s first career game against the Mets.
The New York Mets need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Mets have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Mets have lost five straight games when scoring three or less runs. Lucas Duda leads New York with 46 hits and 19 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Michael Cuddyer have combined for 40 RBI. The New York Mets have won four of their last six home games. Bartolo Colon takes the hill, and he’s 6-3 with a 4.85 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Colin is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 1 of a series and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. National League East. The Mets are 15-6 in their last 21 vs. National League East and 7-3 in Colons last 10 starts. The Phillies are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in New York and 7-22 in the last 29 meetings overall.
The Mets have owned the Phillies recently and Colon has been one of the top pitchers this season. Give me the Mets and the run line to give the wager more value.
