Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I think the Padres will do well in this game. It is hard to have any faith betting the Diamondbacks given how bad they are.
These are 2 teams that are going in opposite directions. There is no excuse for San Diego to lose this game to the lowly snakes.
Dinelson Lamet is clearly the better pitcher than Merrill Kelly. I also like the fact that he is pitching at home. I believe that the Padres will be able to hit around Kelly and Lamet will pitch a solid game. I am all in on San Diego in this one.
I will lay the run line with the Padres.
