Phillies vs. Mets picks and predictions


Phillies 6, Mets 3



The Phillies (-162) are on fire, while the Mets are not, and with Philadelphia having one of its best pitchers take the mound, expect it to come out on top. However, at -162, it isn’t worth a moneyline play.

Run line/Against the spread

BET PHILLIES -1.5 (+100).

Philadelphia has been both dominant as of late and with Suarez on the mound. It has covered in 5 of its last 7 games and is 30-23 ATS as a favorite this season, the 3rd-best ATS record as a favorite in the majors.

The Phillies are 11-1 ATS with Suarez on the mound, losing just once. Only 1 of those games, a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves as underdogs March 31, was within 1 run as well. As for the Mets, they are just 18-16 ATS as underdogs, which ranks in the bottom half of the league, and lost 10-5 in Manaea’s last start.

That said, play PHILLIES -1.5 (+100).


BET UNDER 9.5 (-104).

The Phillies have gone Under in 4 straight games and are 0-7-1 O/U in their last 8. They are 28-32-4 O/U on the season. Philadelphia is 0-2-1 O/U in Suarez’s last 3 starts.

The Mets have been the opposite as of late, going 5-0-1 O/U in their last 6, but they are 4-6-1 O/U in their last 10. New York has allowed 3 or fewer runs in 2 straight games, so it might be able to limit the high-powered Phillies offense.

Back UNDER 9.5 (-104).
