Mets @ Phillies
NYM (-195) @ PHI (+175)
Talk about two teams who are very different trajectories. The Mets have won their last two, scoring 19 runs in the process. The Phillies just got swept in a 3-game series by the Orioles giving up 26 runs. Now the Phillies have to go up against arguably the best pitcher in the MLB when Jacob DeGrom takes the mound tonight. Adding on to that the Phillies are starting Spencer Howard who will be making his second career start. In his previous start he went 4.2 innings and gave up 4 runs.
Usually, when DeGrom starts the Mets fail to score runs. However, this season the Mets are averaging 4 runs per game when DeGrom pitches. In 2018 if the Mets scored 4 runs a game when DeGrom was on the mound he would’ve had a 30-0 record. That’s a real statistic, I swear.
The Mets are hitting the best they’ve been all year, and DeGrom is on the mound.
The Phillies are in a massive slump, and have a second time starter on the mound.
The Pick: NYM -1.5 (-135)
Mets 6 - Phillies 1
