New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The Mets have really been struggling and it does not get any easier as they have to visit the Phillies. I would not be surprised if their struggles continue in this series.
The Mets have better pitching, while the Phillies have a better offense. I look for this game to be a good, entertaining one.
Ranger Suarez does not normally get stretched out that much, so it will be interesting to see how long he goes. I look for the Phillies to keep up their good offense and do enough against Megill to get a win.
My pick is Phillies on the moneyline.
