Philadelphia is 7-3 in their last 10 Saturday games and 1-5 in their last 6 games as an underdog. The over is 7-1-1 in Philadelphia’s last 9 road games. New York is 3-9 in their last 12 Saturday games and 1-5 in their last 6 game two’s of a series. The over is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 games. The under is 11-4-2 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings.
The Mets have been very good so far this season and currently have a 7.5 game lead in the NL East standings. Walker has only allowed three runs over his last three starts, while Eflin has allowed three runs over his last two starts. This game should be low scoring, but I am taking the Mets at home.
