The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies are set to play the final installment of a 3 game series on Thursday night with the series split at one game each. The Phillies won Tuesday’s opener 4-1 and the Mets pulled out a 5-4 win on Wednesday night.
New York Mets
The Mets sit 5 games below .500 after snapping a 3 game skid on Wednesday night. Despite leading the league in batting average (.279) and on-base percentage (.354) they rank 10th in RBIs.
New York has struggled to translate this offensive success into runs scored. They strand a league worst 3.98 runners in scoring position per game. They will need to improve their production with runners in scoring position if they want to make a run at the postseason.
Seth Lugo will take the mound for the Mets on Thursday night. The righty is 2-3 on the year and sports a solid 2.63 ERA. Although he’s lost 2 of his last 3 decisions, he registered a win against the Phillies earlier this month.
Philadelphia sits on top of the National League wild card race. They boast a dangerous lineup that is capable of putting up runs in a hurry. They rank fourth in the league in on-base percentage (.339) and fifth in runs per game (5.26). The Phillies will look to get to Lugo early to seal a series win at home.
Aaron Nola will get the nod for Philadelphia coming off an extra day of rest. Nola has been a force this season with a 5-3 record and a 2.40 ERA. He was dominant his last time out throwing 7 scoreless innings and tallying 10 strikeouts in an 11-0 to win over the Marlins.
MLB Betting Trends:
- NY is 0-4 in Lugo’s last for road starts
- PHI is 6-1 in their last 7 home games
- PHI is 7-1 in their last 8 games against right handed starting pitchers
- PHI is 12-6 as home favorites this season
Free New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Philadelphia has played well at home this season. As good as Nola has pitched this year he’s been ever better at home with a 1.57 ERA. I expect him to have a solid outing against a Mets team that’s struggled with runners in scoring position.
Philadelphia’s offense should have some success against Lugo. Although Lugo’s had a solid year he has struggled at Citizens Bank Park throughout his career, holding a 5.51 ERA. He has yet to register a win on the road this season. I don’t expect that to change Thursday night and will back the Phillies to get the win.
