Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I see the Mets doing well in this game against the Phillies.
I think these teams are pretty even, but I give the edge to the Mets. I also like how the Mets are playing at home. It is hard for me to go against New York in this one.
This pitching matchup is heavily in the favor of the Mets. Zach Eflin is ok, but he is nowhere even close to Jacob deGrom. I look for deGrom to continue his great pitching in this one. I am not sure if New York will crush Eflin, but I feel good that they will do enough against him.
Since the Mets are more than -300 favorites, I will take the run line.
