New York is 10-5 in their last 15 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 5-2 in New York’s last 7 game one’s of a series. Philadelphia is 7-1 in their last 8 home games and 15-5 in their last 20 games. The under is 8-1 in Philadelphia’s last 9 games. New York is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

The Mets come into this series with a 3.5 game lead in the NL East over the Braves and a 10 game advantage over the Phillies. Philadelphia has played very well over the last 20 games and is hunting for a playoff spot. Philadelphia is starting Aaron Nola, who has allowed one run in each of his last three starts. For the Mets, Chris Bassitt hasn’t allowed a run in any of his last three starts. These two pitchers have been lights outs over their past few starts and I am taking the under here.
