Philadelphia Phillies Betting Preview
The Phillies look to snap a 3-game losing streak. The Phillies already clinched the first wild card spot in the NL. The Phillies pitching staff is 12th in ERA (4.04), 8th in WHIP (1.24) and 6th in quality starts (70). The Phillies' offense is 8th in runs per game (4.89), 10th in batting average (.255) and 9th in homers (218). Nick Castellanos leads the Phillies with 170 hits and 106 RBI, while Trea Turner and Bryson Stott have combined for 331 hits and 137 RBI. Nick Nelson gets the ball, and he was 3-2 with a 4.85 ERA and 69 strikeouts last season. Nelson is 0-0 with a 8.10 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
New York Mets Betting Preview
The Mets look for a win after losing 6 of their last 10 games. The Mets have the fourth-worst record in the NL. The Mets pitching staff is 17th in ERA (4.28), 21st in WHIP (1.36) and 12th in quality starts (59). The Mets offense is 19th in runs per game (4.45), 25th in batting average (.239) and 10th in homers (214). Brandon Nimmo leads the Mets with 162 hits and 68 RBI, while Jeff McNeil and Francisco Lindor have combined for 310 hits and 153 RBI. Jose Butto gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 3.75 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Butto is 0-1 with a 12.38 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies have lost 3 straight games, and you shouldn't expect them to put their best foot forward here when you consider they're preparing for a wild card series that starts on Tuesday. Nick Nelson is getting the ball for the first time this season, so good luck with that. The Mets were the most disappointing team in baseball this season, but they should want to finish on a strong note and send fans off with a victory. Give me the Mets if forced to pick.
