Preview

The New York Mets will visit the Philadelphia Phillies for the start of a 3-game series on Monday. Both teams won their opening series but the Mets have 1 more game than the Phillies.

New York Mets

The Mets have improved their roster and line up adquiring Max Scherzer from the Dodgers, Starling Marte Mark Canha. All of them had good games in the opening searies and actually leading the team in numbers. Canha leads the team with a .700 batting average while Marte leads the team in RBI's with four. New York’s pitching has been very good, with the team giving up two runs per game.

Max Scherzer recorded the win with a 4.50 ERA striking out 6. Chris Bassit leads with 0.00 ERA and 8 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher: 

Taijuan Walker (0-0, 0.0 ERA) will start for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. The veteran right-hander exited his final start of spring training Tuesday with knee soreness, but he had no issues during Friday's bullpen session and is ready for his 2022 debut. Walker had a record of 7-11 with an ERA of 4.47 and 146 strikeouts in 30 appearances in 2021. In his last 3 starts against the Phillies he allowed only 6 runs in 16 innings.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies beat the Athletics in the opening series winning 2 of 3 games. They averaged 4.50 runs per game through and their .231 batting average is second in the league. Their .324 on base percentage is fourth, while their .462 slugging percentage leads the league. Rhys Hoskins leads the team with a .444 batting average. Jean Segura leads the team with two home runs, while Nick Castellanos leads the team with three RBI.

Kyle Gibson had the best performance recording his first win with a 0.00 ERA and striking out 10 batters.

Probable Pitcher:

Ranger Suarez (0-0, 0-0 ERA) will be on the mound for the Phillies in the 1st game of the series. Suarez was insane last season, he went 8-5 with an ERA of 1.36, 107 strikeouts and 4 saves in 39 appearances in 2021. He pitched once against the Mets and only 2.2 innings where he didn't allowed any run and had 4 strike outs.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Mets are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Philadelphia.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Mets' last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Philadelphia's last 11 games.

Philadelphia are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games.

Prediction

Both teams looked good with their roster and lineups improved. The Mets will send Walker to the mound and he did a good job against the Phillies last season while Philadelphia will send Suarez who had an outstanding 2021 season and pitched well against the Mets. Even with both offenses doing good so far I expect a low scoring game on this one. Take the under.

PICK: Under 9  (-110)
