Philadelphia is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 4-12 in their last 16 road games. The under is 5-2-1 in Philadelphia’s last 8 Sunday games. New York is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 7-3 in their last 10 Sunday games. The under is 3-0-1 in New York’s last 4 Sunday games. The under is 9-1-2 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings.

This should be a very good game between two pitchers that have had success to begin their season. Scherzer is off to a very good start and has only allowed more than one earned run in one of his four starts. The Mets have been one of the better teams in baseball this season and I really like them in this spot. The Mets are at home, have their ace on the mound, and will be playing in primetime. I like the Mets -1.5 here.
