New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
This is a critical series between the 2 top teams in the National League East. The Mets are trying to widen the Gap between them and 2nd place, while the Phillies want to get their name to the top of the division. It should be a compelling one.
The Phillies have been playing very well and it will be good for them to play back home. I look for them to start off this series strong and win a close one.
This is a matchup between 2 very tough right handers. I do not think either starter will get crushed and it will come down to the bullpens.
I like the Phillies at home on the moneyline.
