The Phillies want to forget about their weekend trip to Colorado as quick as possible as the Rockies took 3 of 4 inthe series. Philadelphia is still in 1st in the East however, and are able to add to that cushion with a win as the Mets are 1GB.
Some solace that the Phillies take ahead of this series is that they just took 2 of 3 from the Mets at Citizens Bank Park. That includes tagging Monday’s starter Steven Matz for 6 ER before he could even make an out.
Besides hitting well against Matz last time around, another reason Philadelphia has value on Monday is because Jake Arrieta is on the hill. Arrieta held the Mets to 2ER while throwing 8 solid innings last time out, his 4th straight quality start to begin the year.
New York Mets
The Mets failed to win their 3rd series in a row over the weekend as they fell 2 of 3 times to the Cardinals in St. Louis, That followed losing 2 of 3 to the Phillies and a 2-2 split vs. Atlanta but all those games were on the road.
New York is back at Citi Field for the first time in 12 days on Monday – is it enough to give them the edge? The Mets are just 2-3 at home this season and have a pitcher taking the mound who has to have some psyche issues after his last start.
The good news for Matz is that he can’t be much worse than his last start where he failed to get a single out vs. Philadelphia. He should also be fresh after tossing just 31 pitches. Matz was good before that, allowing just 3ER total in the previous three starts so maybe he returns to that form Monday?
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Phillies are 6-2 their last 8 vs. team with a winning record

Free New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Every Joe 6-Pack is going to be on Philadelphia tonight after what they did to Matz last time around. That’s a dangerous spot to be in.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.5
If anything, Arrieta should be solid and the line points to NYM having a great chance at winning this which means Matz will return to form from his first 3 starts of the year.
