New York Mets
Snydergaard put in a quality start in his last outing against the Colorado Rockies where he went six innings giving up two earned off of six hits while striking out five and giving up a season-high four walks. He hasn’t be any means been sharp in his last two outings giving up 16 hits and five earned, but he has managed to put in two quality starts.
Thor’s stat line is looking “Godly” as the strikeouts (10.41 K/9) are high and the walks (1.93 BB/9) and home runs (0.77 HR/9) are very low. With an unlucky .336 BABIP, we could even see an improvement in his already stellar 3.09 ERA and 2.80 FIP.
It’s been a struggle for New York in the last week as they have only mustered one win in their last seven contests. During that time their lineup has been dismal only slashing .209/.266/.355 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.
Eflin was solid in his second start of the season putting in a quality start while also picking up the win against the San Francisco Giants. He traveled 6.2 innings scoreless-innings giving up just four hits while fanning nine and walking three. He has now put in two quality starts giving up just one earned with a 13:3 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
For someone who owns a career ERA of 5.39, it is encouraging to see he has only given up one earned run, albeit he has faced two weak lineups in the Chicago White Sox and the San Francisco. However, he’ll get to face a struggling New York lineup that has a .206 batting average in the last week.
Philadelphia has been playing some solid baseball in the last week winning five of their seven contests. In that span their lineup has been hot slashing .270/.348/.502 to go with 27 extra-base hits and 40 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mets -1.5
It feels like at this point Snydergaard has just been getting by, but even when he isn’t at his sharpest, he can still put in quality starts. Eflin has been solid in his first two starts, but after two quality starts I expect New York to take him off his high horse. Look for Snydergaard to tame this hot Philadelphia lineup. New York is 11-7 on the road compared to 7-10 at home. Back the road favorites and the run line.
