The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Citi Field. The Mets swept the Cincinnati Reds and the Phillies beat the Marlins 2 of 3 times to take the series. The Mets are 9-3 against the Phillies this season.

Defensively they are allowing 4.07 runs per game and rank #9 in the league. Zack Wheeler leads the team with a 2.63 ERA, 137 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded for the Phillies.
Probable Pitcher: Ranger Suarez (8-5, 3.68 ERA)
Suarez will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for Philadelphia. Suarez gave up three earned runs over 5.1 innings and picked up the win in Saturday's victory over the Nationals. He allowed seven hits, struck out five batters and walked two. He has a record of 1-2 with an ERA of 5.09 and 13 strikeouts in 10 appearances against the Mets in his career.
New York Mets
The Mets get here with a 73-39 record and have won 8 of their last 9 games. The team is averaging 4.86 runs per game. They're batting for .259 AVG, 544 runs scored in 992 hits and 115 home runs, ranking #3 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Jeff McNeil is batting for .307 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 29 home runs and 96 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.72 runs per game and rank #4 in the league. Chris Bassit leads the pitching staff with a 3.39 ERA, 123 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the NY Mets.
Probable Pitcher: Max Scherzer (8-2, 1.98 ERA)
Scherzer will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mets. Scherzer allowed four hits and struck out 11 across seven scoreless innings to earn the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus Atlanta. He has a 16-5 record with an ERA of 2.66 and 224 strikeouts in 28 appearances versus the Phillies in his career.
Philadelphia are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
Philadelphia are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against NY Mets.
NY Mets are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of NY Mets' last 7 games against Philadelphia.
NY Mets are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.
The Mets continue to be great at home as they have won 7 of their last 8 games there and they're 5-0 playing at home against the Phillies this season. Max Scherzer will take the mound on this game who has been insane this season but the only game where he has allowed more than 3 runs was precisely against the Phillies. Rangers Suarez will start for the Phillies who's also doing a great job this season and has allowed only 3 runs in his last 4 starts. Suarez is capable of keeping this game close and the Phillies have been profitable ATS on the road so I'll take the Phillies with the run line.
PICK: Phillies +1.5 (-130)
