New York is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games. The over is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 games. Philadelphia is 0-4 in their last 4 games and 0-8 in their last 8 Sunday games. The over is 6-1 in Philadelphia’s last 7 home games. The under is 9-3-2 in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.

In the first game of the double header, we should be in for a very good pitching matchup with Scherzer and Gibson. I have to give the nod to Scherzer in that game. In Game 2, the Mets have the better pitcher as well with Bassitt. I would take the Mets in Game 1 and the over in Game 2.
