A lack of run support that used to plague the Mets when Jacob deGrom was pitching appears to have disappeared for now, as the Mets have outscored their opponents 32-2 in deGrom’s last two starts, including a 14-1 win over the Phillies two starts ago. I mean deGrom’s also on fire too, giving up just four earned runs across his last five starts, spanning 32 innings of work. deGrom’s also 8-1 with a 2.16 ERA in his career against the Phillies. I’m not sure if it’s Wheeler or Nola going for the Phillies, but even with Nola boasting a 2.19 ERA against the Mets this season, I’m not sure any of it matters right now with the way the Mets are backing up deGrom. I’ll side with the New York Mets -1.5 as my premium pick for this game.
